No goals in second pre-season friendly match.

Pre-Season 2019-20

Friendly

Fairford Town  0 – 0  Cirencester Town

Cirencester made the short journey to near neighbours Fairford Town for their 2nd pre-season friendly match and honours were shared as neither side was able to open their account.

On a very warm evening and firm pitch the game never really caught fire as neither side was able to retain the ball for long and on the occasions either penalty area was threatened the defences stood firm.

Cirencester posed the first threat on goal but it was the home side that had the first corner kick following a strong run from Callum Preece.

The game became end-to-end with few threats on goal although Josh Parsons had a shot parried and a header saved, also Jonny Dennis had an effort diverted to ‘keeper Ben Mitchell, whilst for the home side Dan Bailey fired wide of the left post.

Changes to personnel were made at the interval and almost from the re-start Connor Thompson had a shot blocked by Cirencester ‘keeper Sam Ayres.

On the hour mark Freeman saw his shot pushed over the bar by Mitchell.

More personnel changes were made and as a result the game became more disjointed although it must be said Fairford had the better of the closing stages as they won several corner kicks.

Another good work-out on a warm evening for the teams in their search for fitness but not too much goal mouth threat.
