Barnstaple Town 1-6 Winchester City
Absolutely brilliant result and performance from the whole group today, on what can only be described as a quagmire or a pitch, against a side as reckless in their tackles as I have seen a side in some time, we produced a brilliant display and a deserved big victory!
We made a couple of changes with Max Smith and Liam Gilbert coming in, we had no Bailey on bench this time and had everyone else available for selection! To be honest it was all us throughout and we went ahead with a couple of scrambled finishes by Simba, then a 3rd great finish before half time from IK.
2nd half we again dominated proceedings, chances came and went throughout the half but a goal from Simba to wrap his hat trick up with a great finish; then Barron slotted nicely away for 5-0! They pulled one back but we got another from Rob Carr to seal a great win! 6-1!
We will enjoy the win after a hell of a long trip; then get ourselves ready to take on Thame again in the replay! We will need to get ready for that one as we know they have a lot of threats!
Well done all the boys today!
Up the citizens!
