Dev Squad put 6 past Tytherington

Tytherington Rocks 1 Cirencester Town 6

With Shane Bumphrey still not available Clive moved Tom Luce forward and started in a 4-4-2 formation.   

This game started at the same time as the rain and the horrible conditions affected the opening minutes of this second match in 48 hours for the Development squad. The first real effort of the match came from Rocks when a James Brock effort called for a good save from Adam Clatworthy. The resulting corner saw Ashley McDowell score for the Rocks in the 11th minute. This spurred the Ciren boys on as it often has before when they fall behind.

In the 13th minute Liam O’Brien has a snap shot go just wide of the right hand post. On the 15th minute Danny Gudger was pulled down on the edge of the box and flashed the free kick low and hard across the penalty box but Jack Smith couldn’t get the ball from under his feet. O’Brien had another effort go wide in the 23rd minute. The pressure was not all one way and the Rocks looked dangerous when attacking but the Ciren defence marshalled by captain Kyle Pitts was equal to it.

In the 28th minute Clatworthy stepped up to take a free kick, given for offside, and hit a long ball to Scott Reynolds who crossed for Jack Smith to head the ball home. There were 2 more good chances for Ciren in the first half when Reynolds chased a long ball and was hit by the Tytherington keepers clearance but the rebound went wide, and then Tom Luce hit an effort straight at the keeper.

However the last action of the half came when Brock stole the ball and had a shot which streaked across the Ciren goal.

Half time 1 – 1

The second half became a Ciren goal fest with the first coming in the 50th minute when  the Rocks keeper brought down Gudger to gain a penalty which Luce stepped up to score. 4th penalty in 4 matches, 3 scored. In the 56th minute Jack Smith was fouled on the edge of the box. Gudger took the free kick which the keeper parried but George Peare couldn’t quite get on the rebound.

In the 62nd minute McDowell broke the offside trap and went through one on one with Clatters who proved equal to the task. The next three minutes saw the game become Ciren’s when on the 65th minute Rocks had another good effort which O’Brien cleared, inside 2 minutes O’Brien got onto the end of a good ball from Gudger to make it 3 – 1. Straight from the kick off Ciren stole the ball and Gudger scored to make it 4 – 1.

The game was now effectively over as a contest but Rocks didn’t give up and the Ciren defence had to remain alert. Peare was booked on 75th minute for a tackle that stopped a Rocks attack in its tracks. Pitts now got in on the act and had a header from a corner well saved by the Rocks keeper. On the 79th minute Jack Smith got his second and the teams fifth when he slotted home the ball he had received the ball from Luce. Gudger
got his second and the team’s sixth in the last minute of the game.

Gudger was voted man of the match.
