'The Centurions' score five more on the road.

Mangotsfield United  1 – 5  Cirencester Town

The New Years day fixture took Cirencester to Mangotsfield United and for the second successive match they scored five goals against a Bristol side – having defeated Bristol Manor Farm on Saturday.

 

Mangotsfield started positively from the kick-off but Cirencester survived and began to counter and by the mid-point of the half were looking very dangerous and, having already struck the woodwork, it was no surprise when they opened the scoring shortly afterwards as a quickly taken free kick was slipped down the right channel for Ben Whitehead to cross to the far post where ALAN GRIFFIN finished from a yard.

Two minutes it was two as Aidan Bennett laid the ball into the path of BEN WHITEHEAD and the prolific striker made no mistake from the edge of the box.  

Despite this double setback the home side pressed again to win a couple of corner kicks before a lob to the edge of the Cirencester area turned into a race between ‘keeper Mat Wieczorek and LOUIS BRITTON that resulted in the home player firing into the empty net.

Cirencester responded almost immediately when AIDAN BENNETT placed his right footed curler inside the far right post from just inside the area.

On the stroke of the interval Bennett turned provider as he delivered the ball across the box to TOMMY ANDERSON who sidestepped his marker before scoring.  1-4.  

With nothing to lose the home side pressed forward after the break but despite this Wieczorek was only called into action a couple of times to deal with shots from distance whilst Cirencester were dangerous on the counter.

As the game entered its final phase JACK FREEMAN completed the scoring when he fired into the top left corner after collecting a Whitehead flick as he burst down the centre.
