It's high fives for Robins on their travels

Evesham Editorial 4th Oct, 2017   0

EVESHAM United powered into third place in Southern League West with a crushing 5-1 victory at then leaders Bristol Manor Farm on Saturday.

The Robins were in scintillating form as they inflicted a first home league defeat of the campaign on their hosts and both sides now sit three points behind new pace-setters Taunton Town.

Paul Collicutt’s side, who have won three successive league games, now turn their attentions to cup duty as they prepare for Saturday’s visit of league rivals Cirencester Town for an FA Trophy preliminary round tie.

They will go into the match in buoyant mood after a superb comeback win at the weekend.

The hosts took the lead on 18 minutes when Lloyd Mills shot home from close range after a corner but Lewis Powell levelled shortly afterwards when he headed home from Bradley Gray’s free kick.

Another Gray set piece was the source for the visitors’ second goal when centre back Matt Williams nodded home emphatically from a corner and it was 3-1 on the stroke of half time when a fine run by skipper Linden Dovey ended with him curling home a left-footed shot from the edge of the area.

United were in complete command in the second half and their dominance was rewarded when Paul Fahy converted at the far post to put the outcome beyond doubt 15 minutes from time.

The icing was put on the cake in the fifth minute of injury time when Adam Mann burst through and netted with aplomb.
