Cirencester into the hat for the next round of The FA Cup

The Emirates FA Cup

Preliminary Round

 

Roman Glass St George  0 - 2  Cirencester Town

 

Cirencester began this seasons FA Cup campaign with a trip to Almondsbury to face ROMAN GLASS ST GEORGE of the Hellenic League Premier Division and with a goal in the opening two minutes they made the perfect start and after adding another just after the hour they move into the next round.

 

The opening goal came about as TOMMY ANDERSON robbed a defender of the ball when he received a pass across the front of the 6-yard box and promptly despatched it inside the left post as the ‘keeper closed him down.

The early goal enabled Cirencester to press with quick movement and passing leading to several chances but no further goals and it was the home side that nearly levelled when Luke Johnson’s lob landed on the roof of the net seconds before the half-time whistle.

The Centurions continued to press after the break forcing the home side to rely on counter attacks and just after the hour a flowing move from right to left released LEVI IRVING into the penalty area for his first touch and he confidently tucked it inside the right post.

An all-round solid performance from Cirencester who dominated possession against opponents that looked dangerous on the counter but were not given much room when they neared the Cirencester penalty area.
