Bad day at the office for the Worthians

Yate Town 3-0 Highworth Town

Highworth suffered their second league defeat of the season, and their first away from home, in a disappointing performance against unbeaten league leaders Yate Town.

Having conceded 3 goals in the first 32 minutes it was always going to be a struggle to avoid a heavy defeat but the team's second half performance at least showed an improvement and a resilience not apparent in the first 45 minutes.

On 9 minutes, Matty Grabe tripped a home forward on the edge of the penalty box but was not deemed by the referee to be the last defender although a yellow card was shown to the Highworth player. The resulting free kick was fired just wide. Four minutes later however poor defending from a clearance by keeper Thomas allowed Ollie Mehew a clear run into the penalty area and he comfortably beat Connor Johns with a low shot.

It was 2-0 on 18 minutes when Adam Price volleyed into the top corner from fully 25 yards. The only goal of the afternoon manager Roberts thought was unavoidable.

2-0 became 3-0 on 32 minutes as more poor defending saw the ball fed through to Ollie Mehew to shoot past Johns for his second of the afternoon.

H-T Yate Town 3-0 Highworth Town

Highworth improved in the second period without ever testing Thomas although the visitors were indebted to keeper Johns for fine saves at either end of the half. Nick Peare hit the outside of a Highworth post on 69 minutes but no further goals arrived.

Highworth manager Jeff Roberts was inevitably disappointed after the game with the way Yate controlled the game all over the pitch but recognised that with Rory Sproule, Jordan Roberts and Sean Wood all missing through injury, this was always going to be a stern test.

Next up on Saturday the Worthians travel to Winchester City, 3.00 ko, the last of three tough away games in successive weeks.
