Former Bristol City forward shining for Cirencester Town

Cirencester Town manager Charlie Griffin has described Henry Spalding as 'a big talent' after the midfielder scored his first Southern League Division One West goal of the season in a 3-0 win over Paulton Rovers on Saturday writes Johnny Morton.
Griffin says the former Bristol City man is an important part of his squad ahead of tonight's night's league fixture against Evesham United at the Corinium Stadium.

"Henry is a talented lad and we know what we have got with him, he just has to show it," said Griffin. "He's played a lot of games now and he scored a great goal. Where he plays, he has to get up and down the pitch and work hard. He is doing the ugly side of it. We know he can go forward and he is a big player for us. He's a big talent."

Striker Sam Walsh also scored his first league goal, coming off the bench to strike with his first touch of the game, and Griffin says he 'can do a job' at the level after stepping up from the Development side.

"Sam came on and scored with his first touch," he added.

"He has played through the Development side and he's learning the game and what the league is all about. He has a good eye for goal and we all know that. I've watched him enough in the Development Squad, and he has come on and showed that he can do a job."

The Centurions face an Evesham side that sit fifth in the table, and have won three of their last four league games, including a 2-0 victory over Barnstaple Town ion Saturday. If they can replicate their performance at the weekend, Griffin is confident his side can pick up all three points.

"I've watched them a couple of times this season, and they have some good players," he said. "Colly (Paul Collicutt) is a very good manager and knows what he is doing with them. They've had some good results, and some ups and downs as well. It should be an entertaining game, and if we perform like we did on Saturday, which I expect us to, then I'm confident we can come away with the points."

Michael Pook and Matt Coupe will return to the squad, while Jack Watts, Ellis Dunton, Matt Jones and Aslan Griffin all miss out.
