Slimbridge 1-2 Winchester City
What a brilliant result this was today, against a very tough nut to crack generally for us over the years, especially in light of the difficult month we had in February, plus in addition the level of depletion that we had today, a truly superb result and a decent display in the main as well!
So we had Willo unavailable due to work, Rob Carr injured, Emmo failed a fitness test at the ground and had to drop out, plus Coxy was unwell In the morning and we took the decision to not bring him for obvious reasons! So we actually only had 2 fit subs available including 16 year old Lawson Bright who we called on to help secure us the result for his Southern league debut!
We were against an extremely hard win in the first half but our shape was excellent and we didn’t really get troubled and in fact managed to get a goal with a fine strike from Oli Bailey! It could have been more with a couple of missed chances.
Second half the strength of the wind annoyingly dropped as it always seems to! However we controlled the game really and a 2nd goal was inevitable and Kieran got it with a towering header! We switched off once and they got one back, however we hung on very well for a deserved 3 points!
Major credit to the boys for today, hell of a group of people we have at this club and I couldn’t be happier with them all today! Also well done the fans who in light of having no coaches also have to find their own ways there but made themselves heard!
Now we have a midweek off for a change and can train and prepare for a massive game against Cirencester next weekend, can’t wait!
Up the citizens!
