Game 23: Stockton & Codford 4.0 Steeple Ashton (Wilts Junior Cup) 7.12.13
A chance to see a game in a new competition that turned out to be a comfortable win for the home side. In one corner it was difficult to see the pitch markings due to the huge tree in the corner shedding leaves all over the pitch. The first half was a close affair, an early goal coming from a defensive mistake and we almost saw a second when a corner had to be tipped over the bar by the visiting keeper.
Both teams stayed on the sidelines for the half time team talks and given the fading light, the referee sensibly allowed a shorter break than the standard fifteen minutes. The second half was near one way traffic, Stockton & Codford scoring with a penalty given for handball, a superb passing movement ending with a shot into an empty net and an injury time penalty.
