Brimscombe 1

Fairford 2

Fairford Town came from behind to claim all three points against high flying Brimscombe & Thrupp on Boxing Day.

Jody Bevan's side fell behind when Ash Caldwell smashed a penalty into the top corner to give the hosts the lead on 39 minutes.

Things improved for Fairford in the second half and they equalised just two minutes into it through Jamie Reid's effort.

They found themselves in front in the 49th minute when captain Dan Bailey completed the turnaround.

Fairford were dealt a blow on 65 minutes when Martin Hall was given a second yellow card and the visitors were down to 10-men.

They then had to rely on heroics from Harrison Ellis who saved a penalty with just over 10 minutes to go and Fairford held on for a huge victory.
