'The Centurions' sink 'The Boatmen'

  

 

BetVictor Southern League 2019/20

Division 1 South

 

Cirencester Town  2 – 1  Sholing FC

Cirencester came out of the blocks very quickly against their south coast opponents – pressing from the off to win early corner kicks and clip the outside of the left post – but it took 25 minutes before they opened their account with a sensational 30 yard strike from BRADLEY GRAY that flew into the top left corner.

A few minutes later Cirencester had a strong claim for a penalty kick denied when Toumani Sidibe was brought down as he cut in from the left.

Whilst the home side pressed Sholing mounted a counter attack that required a double save from Lewis Clayton to deny them shortly before Cirencester scored.

As the interval neared and Cirencester pressed again Sholing countered down their left as BRADLEY TARGETT worked his way into the home area to finish at the second attempt.

Cirencester made the perfect start after the break when JONNY DENNIS fired into the top left corner as he cut in from the left.

This prompted an immediate response from Sholing as they reached the right by-line a couple of times but by the hour mark Dennis had fired wide of the right post and both Nick Hancock and Sidibe had headed over.

After a period of neat play from the hosts a Sholing attack to the left corner resulted in a throw-in that was ‘back-headed’ for Targett to strike a half volley over the bar from near the penalty spot.

As the game was drawing to a close Levi Irving made some strong runs down the left flank and from one of these ‘keeper Ryan Gosney saved at the feet of Tommy Anderson.
