FA Youth Cup 3rd Qual Round.
Cirencester Town 7 Tiverton Town 1.
CIRENCESTER COLLEGE Academy are just a game away from a potentially mouth-watering tie against the Swindon Town youth team after dismissing Tiverton Town 7-1 to get to the First Round Proper of the FA Youth Cup.
The first half was evenly contested with both teams having chances to go ahead before Asa Cox nudged Cirencester in front on 27 minutes with a shot from the edge of the penalty area. Although Ciren were playing well, Tiverton looked quick and dangerous on the break, but were unable to convert their opportunities.
In the second half, Ciren really stepped up a gear and soon went 3-0 up through Jack Smith and Tim Bond, before Tiverton responded a minute after the third home goal to make it 3-1.
However, after that, it was all Ciren. Smith scored again on 69 minutes before completing his hat-trick five minutes later to make the score 5-1.
Ciren continued to dominate play and Harry Owen, who had been providing telling crosses all game, rounded off a very good display with two goals of his own in the 85th and 87th minutes.
In the final moments of the match, Tiverton looked as if they were going to get a consolation goal when they were awarded a penalty. However, their spot kick was superbly saved by Jack Chappell.
Cirencester play Mangotsfield United in the First Round Proper of the competition on Thursday (November 1) on The Corinium's main stadium pitch at 7.30pm for kick off to earn the right to play either Swindon Town or Sholing in the next round.
