Old Town March On In Adver Cup

Old Town United produced a fine performance to knock Premier Division side Swindon Spitfires out of the Adver Cup, writes Josh Bird.

Old Town started brightly and took the lead through Aaron Williams and after missing several further opportunities, doubled their lead as Stephen Holland stepped up to slot home a penalty.

Swindon Spitfires came out fighting in the second half and pulled a goal back with half an hour remaining but Anton Webb rounded off the scoring by restoring the two goal lead in the 65th minute.

And after seeing his side knock out higher league opposition, Old Town boss Chris Wood was delighted with the performance.

“It was a great team performance right from the start,” he said.

“The lads gave their all, we know what’s at stake and no one wants to get knocked out of the cup.

“Swindon Spitfires are a strong team and hadn’t lost in the league so far so we knew we had to up the tempo and take the game to them.

“We dominated possession and passed well, our finishing could have been better but overall I’m very pleased with the result and looking forward to the next round.”
