POULTON’S first venture in this cup competition finished as expected against their higher league opponents Fairford Town who won easily.

Faringdon Memorial Cup 1st Rnd

Fairford Town 6

Poulton 0

Three goals in each half put Fairford into the next round but with any luck Poulton could well have had a few goals themselves, especially in the first half.

Two goals from Luke Corderer put Fairford on the way after 20 minutes with James Eddy adding a third in the 45th minute.

Any hopes Poulton had of staging a recovery were dashed with Fairford scoring three more in the last 15 minutes, Scott Chilcott netting twice and Dave Thompson completing the scoring.
