Match Report

Goal-fest in the sun.

A sunny morning at Evesham's Jubilee Stadium saw the home team victorious in a seventeen goal encounter. A cagey opening saw both sides testing each other out, and chances at a premium. Cirencester played on the front foot, but Evesham proved to be more clinical in the first quarter, leading at the end 2-0. A wonderful left foot strrike from Charlie Grubb, possibly contender for best individual goal of the season. saw the hosts take the lead, followed by a sweeping move that spread play from front to back which saw Max Carby double the lead with a possible contender for best team goal of the season.

The second quarter saw a more open affair. With Evesham in the ascendency, they raced into a four goal lead following strikes from Oli Smith, and a second for Max, but Cirencester were able to capitalise when the home defence relaxed. Individual errors offered the visitors a chance to get back into the game and they pulled closer at 4-2 following two quick goals. Jamie Hill managed to score a fifth for Evesham and the half ended 5-2. The game really should have been all over, but credit to Cirencester for their spirited fightback.

After a chance to regroup at half time, Evesham turned the screw in the third quarter, and attempted to put the game beyond the visitors grasp. A procession of goals followed, through Max (hatrick), Jake Bennett, Max (a fourth), and the ever busy Ben Gudger and a second for Jamie. The third quarter ended with Evesham 10-2 ahead, and the game all but finished.

The fourth quarter saw Evesham make some positional changes, and a debut JPL goal for Charlie Cant as he was pushed into a more attacking role. Having broken his goal drought, it took only 2 further minutes for him to score his second. Further errors at the back saw Evesham let Cirencester score a third, before Cobey Endacott-Hodson and Jamie (hatrick) finished the game off.

A beautiful morning in the vale and a good team performance provided a treat to the watching supporters. Cirencester played football in the right style, and contributed to a good game of football, but were unfortunate to come up against a rampant Evesham team determined to use their home advantage to its full extent.

Good luck to Cirencester for the remainder of the season.
