The Centurions knocked out of the FA Cup by The Martyrs

The Emirates FA Cup 

Second Qualifying Round



Cirencester Town  1 - 2 Merthyr Town  

The Emirates FA Cup - Second Round Qualifying Replay at The Corinium Stadium provided another fast paced, entertaining match between the sides and after a goal-less first half Merthyr made the breakthrough a minute after the interval, adding a second mid-way through the second period. Cirencester reduced the arrears from the Penalty Spot in the 90th minute to add a little more tension to the final few minutes.


The game started at a frantic pace and continued throughout the first period but it remained goal-less despite numerous balls into both Penalty Areas.

Within a minute of the re-start LEWIS POWELL scored for Merthyr as he collected a clearance kick and tucked his shot inside the right post.  

Cirencester responded positively but at the mid-point conceded again when ALEX JOHN smashed the ball into the back of the net after a couple of other efforts had been blocked.

The home side continued to push forward and on the 90-minute mark JAKE LEE converted a Penalty Kick to add more drama to ‘added-time’ but it was not to be and Merthyr Town will take on Gloucester City in the next round of the competition.
