Report: Cirencester Town 3-1 City U18s

City let slip a half-time lead as Cirencester Town bounced back to progress in the GFA Senior Challenge Cup.

The Under-18s group entered the competition at the quarter-final stage and made a good start when Sam Bell put them ahead at the Corinium Stadium on Tuesday night (December 3rd).

It came after good defensive work from James Taylor allowed him to break forward and link with Tommy Conway. He put Bell through on goal who proceeded to take the ball around the goalkeeper and slot home.

Both Conway and Bell had further chances to increase the lead before half-time but the youthful City side struggled after the break when they couldn’t keep the same quality of possession.

Cirencester equalised just before the hour-mark when a free kick rebounded off the crossbar and struck Bell on the goalline. The referee awarded a penalty for handball, from which the home scored.

Cirencester broke away, cutting in off the left to pick out the bottom corner to go 2-1 ahead, before the hosts scored another penalty following a trip from Josh Owers.

Alex Ball’s side spurned several chances to get back into the game through a combination of poor finishing and good defending from Cirencester.
