Much needed win for the Worthians.
By Derek Lloyd
Highworth Town 4 Bristol Manor Farm 0
The final score line probably flatters the home side given they could well have been a couple of goals behind at half time.
Having taken a 7th minute lead through Swindon Town loanee Jordan Young with a fine solo effort the home side were then indebted to keeper Connor Johns for a series of fine saves to deny the visitors who also struck the crossbar and had two "goals " correctly ruled out for offside. After Young's opener the nearest Highworth came again was just on half time when Young put in Lotomey whose effort was well blocked by the keeper with Mbunga unable to put the rebound away.
The second half belonged entirely to Highworth.
On 63 minutes substitute Jonah Beer chased down a ball which seemingly going out for a goal kick and crossed brilliantly for Young to deftly flick the ball home. It was 3 on 73 minutes when Darren Jefferies cut in from the left and fired high past the keeper from 15 yards. 3 became 4 five minutes later when Young set up Mbunga to round the keeper and slot in from an acute angle. All that remained was to see if Young could complete his hat trick and he was mightily close when, having been put through by Sean Woods, he just failed to beat the onrushing keeper.
Man of the Match Jordan Young
