Shortwood United welcomed Cirencester Town to the Meadowbank Stadium on Friday eveningfor the first of the cup group stage games.
Cirencester started the first quarter strongly scoring in the first minute when Harrison Page made a very good save from a long range shot but was unable to stop the follow up. The second Cirencester goal came from a superb shot from outside the box into the top corner of the net. A third Cirencester goal resulted from a short corner which was then crossed into the box and turned in from close range. Towards the end of the quarter Dylan Ottey-Lewis, for Shortwood, was unlucky to see his shot hit the bar.
After the first quarter Shortwood regrouped and the next three quarters were relatively even. Shortwood’s best chances were long range shots with Taylor Arnold forcing a good save from the Cirencester goal keeper and Callum Freeman unlucky when he hit the bar. Cirencester scored a fourth goal when a Shortwood clearance ricocheted into the net.
A very strong Cirencester side won 4-0 against a spirited Shortwood performance which responded well after a difficult first quarter.
