Hythe & Dibden 3-8 Winchester City

Street 0 Winchester City 2

on Sun 9 Dec

For the second successive Saturday Winchester won a game in the second half after a goalless first half.  The result puts them into 9th place and four points ahead of Street who have two games in hand.  Street joined this league from the Toolstation Western League at the start of this season and have made a reasonable start to the season.  The clubs met in the F A Cup in 2016/17 with Winchester emerging 4-2 winners.

 

Winchester made one change to the starting line-up from Saturday with Liam Gllbert replacing Ollie Griggs who reverted to the role of substitute.

 

Early on the defences were mostly on top with hardly any clear cut chances created.  As the half progressed Ryan Pryce had to save a shot from distance from Oscar Latas and Joe Cook's effort from the edge of the box was saved.

 

Three minutes into the second half Jake Rawkins gives Winchester the lead with a lob from the edge of the box and the same player midway through the half is set up by Liam Gilbert but his effort was well saved.

 

In the 82nd minute Brett Cunningham becomes the third substitute used by Winchester City and four minutes after coming on the youngster scored the second goal after bring set up by Tyrell Mitford.

 

There was also success for the Winchester under 16 team who won against Littleton under 16 team who progress to the next round of the county cup.

 

Winchester first team are at home to Bideford on Saturday.
