Bank Holiday victory for 'The Centurions'

Pitching In Southern League

Division 1 South


Cirencester Town  3 - 1  Evesham United


‘The Centurions’ Christmas Bank Holiday fixture brought Evesham United to The Corinium Stadium and a steady start gave the home side a 2-0 interval lead that they increased to three before a late rally from the visitors brought them a consolation goal in added-time.


Playing towards The Arena end of the ground in the first half Cirencester enjoyed much of the possession as they worked their flanks whilst the visitors countered to fire two early shots over the home bar.

Cirencester opened the scoring shortly after the mid-point of the half following a corner kick that was fed back into the mix for AIDAN BENNETT to bundle over the line from close range.

As the half was drawing to a close the home side added another when TOMMY ANDERSON collected a loose ball in the Evesham box to cut left and confidently tuck his shot inside the right post.   

Eight minutes into the second period Cirencester added a third when JOSH NELMES converted a low free kick at the near post but around the hour mark Evesham began to enjoy more possession to test the home defence and former Centurion Toumani Sidibe cut left to fire a fierce shot past the left post.

Evesham pressed forward during the final quarter and a Cirencester clearance provided the opening for Levi Irving to attempt to lob the advancing Lewis Clayton but the ‘keeper managed to push it wide. 

The visitors continued to press forward and in ‘added-time’ they were rewarded when BRANDON SMALLEY fired a firm low shot inside the left post.
