Cirencester lose first home match of the season as Cinderford score 'injury time' winner.

Evo-Stik Southern League 2018/19

Division 1 South


Cirencester Town  0 – 1  Cinderford Town

Cirencester first home match of the 2018/19 season was a Gloucestershire derby against Cinderford Town and it was ‘The Foresters’ who took the points with a goal in ‘added-time’.


The game was played at a quick pace from the ‘off’ with both sides moving the ball from side to side – probing for gaps in their opponents formation and whilst Cirencester were awarded the first corner kick of the match it was Cinderford who had the first pot at goal when Lewis Binns fired over from the edge of the box.

Just after the mid-point of the half a neat move from the home side created an opening for the prolific Ben Whitehead to fire into the net but his joy was short-lived as he was adjudged to be ‘offside’.

The action then moved to the other end as Matt Wieczorek pushed a Dan McDonald effort round his left post and a period of pressure followed from the visitors as Craig Norman, Lorcan Sheehan and Richard Greaves came close.

Cirencester began the second half with a bit more urgency as Whitehead and Aidan Bennett fired wide of the target before the hour mark and by the mid-point Greaves and Dan McDonald had responded for Cinderford.

The action was ‘end-to-end’ and as the game was drawing to a close Cirencester were pressing strongly but in ‘added-time’ Cinderford won the ball on half way and fed it to BEN WATKINS who confidently scored a late ‘winner’ to take the points.

Probably the right result on the night.
