Cirencester score another four at The Corinium Stadium to take the 3 points.

Evo-Stik Southern League 2018/19

Division 1 South

 

Cirencester Town  4 – 1  Larkhall Athletic

Cirencester produced a solid performance against a very competitive Larkhall Athletic to take the points and as a result move into 4th place in the league table.

 

The game started at a frantic pace with both sides shooting wide of the target but when Alan Griffin chased a long ball to the corner to press a defender the ball broke for BEN WHITEHEAD to collect and shoot inside the far left post.

Eight minutes later as Cirencester pressed again they won a corner kick from the right and the alert BEN WHITEHEAD was quick to dart forward to flick the ball inside the near post.  

The visitors created a couple of openings during the next ten minutes in reply whilst Cirencester had a number of corner kicks but it was Larkhall that scored when LEWIS POWELL pounced on a loose ball following a recycled corner kick.

On the stroke of half time a Larkhall free kick cleared the home defence but Louis Spalding managed to recover to clear from near his goal-line.

Within a few minutes of the re-start Cirencester restored their two goal lead as Jack Freeman slipped the ball to AIDAN BENNETT who struck a ferocious shot inside the right post.

Shortly afterwards Larkhall were reduced to ten men following a rash challenge but despite having plenty of possession it took another 22 minutes for Cirencester to score again as ALAN GRIFFIN finished from the edge of the 6 yard box following neat play down the right flank. 

Cirencester continued to press for the remainder of the game but were unable to add any further goals due to some determined defending whilst Larkhall made occasional counter attacks.
