Old Woodstock Town 1-5 Highworth Town

Could have been more


Saturday 24th September by Kev Coles

Away at Old Woodstock Town

5-1, could, should have been more!

Highworth had to shuffle the pack a bit due to unavailability but still came away with a comfortable victory.

Highworth lined up with the same back four for the third game in a row, and as per last week Charlie Seward behind them in goal,Pedder, Macca, Gareth and Chris Jackson proving to be an effective unit.

The midfield welcomed Josh Kirby on the left with Mani enjoying a new role being pushed inside to partner Adam in the middle, Shearer again lined up on the right. Corks and Colesy continued the partnership upfront.

Highworth started very well and after only five mintues were one up after great work by Shearer who had started the game with real purpose. He let fly from 25 yards and although a deflection did alter the course of the ball it was definitely his goal.

Highworth twice hit the bar before Coles made it 2-0 from close range. The third came again due to the hard work and purposeful running of Shearer, he did well down the right and cut it back for Corcoran who gratefully scored his first goal of the season after going so agonisingly close in recent games.

Despite being three up at the break, more was demanded from the management team after some angry words during the interval.

Highworth moved up another gear in the second half and two further goals were scored by Coles to complete his hat-trick but in truth many chances were created by good approach play and should have been converted to truly reflect the margin between the two sides on this day.

I just hope the wayward shooting doesn’t become a theme this season as on other days it could have been more costly.
