Highworth Town 1-4 Winchester City
What a result and what a performance, genuinely so proud of the whole group and the way that we played, they played with so many things we have drummed into them over the last few months, myself and Sean sat back and enjoyed the way the boys played! Top result in a very tough game on paper, away on a Wednesday night which has its own difficulties a well.
We went there with an almost full squad, only Brett Cunningham missing through injury, was tough getting there though with several lads having to leave work and drive directly and not getting there until gone 7pm... we prepared well though and started the game well, sadly an absolute missile of a free kick put them 1 up against the run of play. We bounced back well though and scored when Baz curled a free kick in that Sim touched on and Josh ricocheted it in 1-1! Then quickly it was 2-1, Baz corner bullet headered in by Cookie, then 3-1 with another Baz free kick volleyed in by Josh, that was score at the break.
2nd half we controlled it from start to finish and barely conceded a chance, we scored with a great finish by Oli after the excellent Baz slipped him through. 4-1! Being honest it could have been any score after that as we had so many chances but 4-1 was more than enough and we will enjoy that result!
Massive well done to everyone of the squad today, they are a pleasure to work with and delighted for them. Also what a turn out from the supporters on a Wednesday night! Such a top group of people involved on and off the pitch, let’s enjoy it and keep it going as best we can! Whatever happens it’s been a great season, with the fa cup run and a such a good run of results!
Now we will get the lads in for training tomorrow, prepare for a very tough game and a heck of a long journey at Bideford on Saturday! We go there looking forward to it though!
Up the citizens!
