Cirencester score another five in the Preliminary Round of The FA Cup.

The Emirates FA Cup 2019/20

Preliminary Round

 

Cirencester Town  5 – 0  North Greenford United

The Centurions opened their FA Cup 2019-20 campaign with a Preliminary Round match against North Greenford United of the Spartan South Midland Football League (equivalent level to the Hellenic Premier Division) and dominated to secure a comfortable 5-0 result.

In fairness the visitors didn’t get off to the best start when SHAYNE ANSON headed a corner kick home at the back post after 6 minutes. 

Shortly afterwards MIKE POOK scored directly from a corner kick from the left despite the ‘keeper getting his hands to it. 

Quite rightly the match was played in four quarters due to the heat and the visitors enjoyed their most productive period shortly after the 30 minute mark but a quick counter attack from Cirencester reached Josh Parsons who twisted & turned in the ‘Blues’ box resulting in a penalty kick that MIKE POOK confidently tucked away.

Almost immediately from the re-start the ‘Blues’ conceded again as AIDAN BENNETT sent a low ‘cross-cum-shot’ from the left towards the far post and whilst a covering defender got his studs to it he couldn’t prevent it from entering his net inside the right post.

A few minutes later it was five when Griffin volleyed against the bar and JOSH PARSONS smashed the rebound into the net from about 8 yards.

As a contest the game was over and despite Cirencester striking the woodwork twice and several near misses there were no further goals but credit to North Greenford who continued to search for a consolation goal until the final whistle even though it just wasn’t their day.
