First Team dominate in friendly at Fairford


Pre-Season Friendly

Fairford Town 0-2 Cirencester Town

Cirencester Town's 2nd pre-season friendly match was played at the home of Fairford Town, Cinder Lane, Fairford.
Matt Sysum was away on holiday as James Mortimer-Jones returned from his and retained the captains arm band. Manager, Brian Hughes, was as expected, experimenting, mixing and matching and casting his auspicious eye over the squad on this warm sunny July afternoon played in front of a good sized crowd.
The first quarter was controlled by the Ciren team and in the 14th minute a corner taken by Ben Wells was hit long and hard to the back post where Joe Shepherd rose magnificently and headed  powerfully into the top corner to give Ciren the lead.
Eight minutes later a right footed shot from James Mortimer-Jones into the right corner of the net increased Ciren's score.
Half Time Fairford Town 0-2 Cirencester Town.

The second half saw Ciren with many chances but unable to convert and increase their lead. As in the previous match Brian Hughes made several substitutions. However Fairford remained steady and determined, putting in a fine performance, and the rest of the match was played out in good spirit.


Final Score Fairford Town 0-2 Cirencester Town.


Our next match is at the Corinium Stadium on the 24th July, Kick Off 7.45 pm against Bath City, our first real big test of this pre-season, so a good home crowd to cheer on the team will give the club a good idea of our prospects for 2012/13. 

Don't forget Saturday the 28th July we host Gloucester City at the Corinium Stadium kick off 3 pm, an even bigger game, they are bound to bring good support! So lets match them, tell a friend, bring a friend and cheer Ciren onto victory.
