HIGHWORTH Town failed to capitalise on taking a 10th-minute lead against Highmoor Ibis as they were eventually well beaten 4-2 at The Elms.

Shane Davis gave the struggling Worthians the perfect start but 13 minutes later the visitors leveled courtesy of Callum Gallimore.

Two goals just before the break cost Highworth dear with Gallimore striking again on 40 minutes and Shane Small-King putting Highmoor 3-1 up at the interval.

The visitors extended their lead further on 68 minutes with Small-King getting his second before Ryan King slotted home a penalty on 73 minutes which proved to be nothing more than a consolation.
