Comfortable win for the Worthians

Highworth Town 4-0 Slimbridge

A second successive win for Highworth as goals from captain, Wayne Turk (2), Darren Jefferies and Callum Parsons saw off Slimbridge.

Turk put the home side ahead after two minutes, heading home a corner from six yards out. Jefferies doubled the lead on 12 minutes, cutting in from the left and beating Lewis Adams with a low drive.

Slimbridge almost reduced the arrears midway through the first half but Connor Johns clawed out an eight yard effort from the top corner. Substitute Frankie Grieveson had a shot blocked by Adams and a couple of further efforts from Jefferies were saved and half-time was reached with Highworth still 2-0 up.

A Sean Wood free kick was brilliantly touched onto a post by visiting keeper Adams on 49 minutes but the ball fell kindly for Turk who scored his second of the game.

Callum Parsons scored the 4th from 18 yards out with 12 minutes to go to confirm an 8th league win of the season.

Manger Jeff Roberts will be happy tonight given that he had several players unavailable today and lost Leon Morrison to a neck injury early on with Matty Grabe also unable to take part having aggravated an injury in the warm up. This allowed EdiJdja Mbunga to make a promising full debut against his former club.
