Minety returned for their first home game of the season after recent pitch problems with a win over Hatherop.

On a cold and blustery day Minety returned league action missing a few key players.

The first half was pretty even and the hosts back four dealt with the long ball threat.

Hatherop couldn't take there chances and the second half was finely poised.

Minety grew into the game and their wingers began to drive at the opposition with pace.

The breakthrough came on 60 minutes as a neat through ball from the cultured Topping found Pegler who swivelled and finished neatly into the corner from outside of the box.

Its didn't all go Minety's way and shortly after, Baker was forced to make a smart save which almost certainly looked to be the equaliser.

With the pitch holding up well and the wind picking up keeping the ball on the ground was the only option as18 year-old Jethro Kingsley was causing all sort of trouble on the right wing.

The pacey, confident winger sealed it for the hosts when he cut in and finished neatly into the top left corner of the goal to make it 2-0.

It was another great win for Minety who moved up to fifth in the Cirencester and District League Division One.

They are four points behind their opponents who are currently third.
