Cirencester return from The Forest empty handed.

BetVictor Southern League 2019/20

Division 1 South


Cinderford Town  3 – 1  Cirencester Town

Cirencester’s opening fixture of the new league season took them to The Forest of Dean to face ‘play-off’ conquerors Cinderford Town and it was the visitors who opened the scoring a few minutes before the interval when MIKE POOK confidently converted from the penalty spot after Josh Parsons had been tripped.  

During an evenly contested half Cirencester created a number of chances but the home side came the nearest to scoring when Ethan Moore headed against the bar when well placed.

Shortly afterwards a glancing header from Alan Griffin looked destined for the top right corner until ‘keeper Andrew Hannah pushed it round the post for a corner kick.

During the break Cirencester made a couple of enforced changes and from the re-start Cinderford pressed forward and just before the hour mark James Harding struck the post leading to a goalmouth scramble and a corner kick that ANDY LEWIS headed home to level the score.

The goal encouraged Cinderford and with Cirencester backing off and conceding ground the home side increased the pressure and once again a corner kick led to a goalmouth scramble before ETHAN MOORE eventually found the back of the net to give his side the lead.

As the game entered the final quarter hour Moore turned provider as his cross reached the far left post where Matt MacDonald slipped it to JAMES HARDING who finished from close range.

The Foresters were by now dominating proceedings with Cirencester making occasional forays to the edge of the home penalty area.
