'The Centurions' make a successful foray to Devon to return with the 3 points.

Evo-Stik Southern League 2018/19

Division 1 South

 

Barnstaple Town  0 – 5  Cirencester Town

Cirencester made an early start for their journey to Devon to face Barnstaple Town and on a soft, heavy pitch, due to the incessant rain, came away with a solid, workmanlike 5-nil victory.

Within five minutes of kick-off Cirencester opened their account when ALAN GRIFFIN converted a corner kick at the near post as his header rebounded over the line from the underside of the bar.  

Whilst the home side responded to this setback to mount a couple of attacks the Cirencester defence was in determined mood to deny them any progress and shortly after the mid-point of the half ALAN GRIFFIN doubled his tally as he worked an opening on the edge of the box to produce a fine finish inside the left post.

A few minutes later Harry Stevens latched onto a pass and rounded the advancing Cirencester ‘keeper Luke Merchant but Alex Albert covered to clear the danger.

Immediately from the re-start Barnstaple pressed, leading to a goalmouth scramble but not the goal they were seeking and a few minutes later BEN WHITEHEAD added to the Cirencester tally as he unleashed a fierce strike into the top left corner.

After this Cirencester began to dominate possession with the home side producing a few unsuccessful counter attacks and with ten minutes remaining an incisive Cirencester move culminated in a clinical finish from TOMMY OULDRIDGE.

Six minutes from time WILL CHRISTOPHER completed the scoring with a terrific strike from the right flank that dipped over the 'keeper and under the bar.
