SOUTHERN LEAGUE: Five in a row for Cirencester
CIRENCESTER racked up their fifth Southern League victory in a row as they defeated Wimborne 4-3 at the Corinium in a dramatic encounter.
Both teams scored twice in the final 15 minutes but the Centurions held on for another three points in Division One South & West.
The hosts took the lead after six minutes when Sean Wood went down in the box under a soft challenge and Steve Davies converted from the spot.
Jamie Edge, making his debut for Brian Hughes’ men, made an impact early in the second period as his pinpoint pass midway through the half found Lee Smith and the Gloucestershire side’s top scorer buried the chance.
Substitute Mark Gamble beat keeper Glyn Garner from the spot to pull Wimborne to within one, but the home side quickly restored their two-goal advantage.
A smooth move resulted in James Mortimer-Jones sending in a cross that Shane Bumphrey tucked into the back of the net.
A matter of seconds later, James Stokoe hit back for Wimborne and Gamble drew the south-coast side level on 83 minutes.
However, within two minutes former Swindon Supermarine man Wood saved his side’s blushes when he beat Jason Harvell in the Magpies goal.
Chippenham had no game this weekend and return to action on Tuesday when they host Stourbridge in the Southern Premier. Ciren travel to Godalming on the same evening.
