(Wiltshire Senior Cup 1st Round)

The Bluebirds moved comfortably into the second round of the Wiltshire Senior Cup with a seven goal victory at Wiltshire League Shrewton. Manager Mark Collier took the opportunity to field several players who had not featured recently whilst Andy Sandell benefited from over an hour of game time after returning from injury and suspension.
A foggy night saw Andy Sandell’s second minute ball found James Guthrie but his shot was blocked by the keeper.
Three minutes later Josh Smile’s solo effort saw his shot saved at the expense of a fruitless corner. On seven minutes Scott Donnelly had to be replaced by Michael Jones due to an injury.
The Bluebirds took the lead on fourteen minutes when the Shrews keeper pushed out a shot and the ball fell to Jordan Ricketts who opened his account in a Bluebird shirt.
Dan Bowman and Sandell both failed to add to the score before Will Richards headed home from a twenty seventh minute corner.
The score remained at 2-0 up to half time with the home side unable to convert the few chances they created.
A minute after the break Josh Smile made it three when he received the ball from Guthrie and the keeper fumbled his long range shot into the net.
On forty eight minutes Richards scored his second when he again headed home from a corner.
Four minutes later Smile made it five when Jon Beeden’s long ball over the top found Sandell whose shot was blocked by the keeper but Smile followed up to tap home.
Bowman shot wide around the hour mark before Rickets completed his brace ten minutes from time when he received the ball from a throw-in and his long range shot was pushed onto a post and into the net by the keeper.
Five minutes later Smile completed the scoring and his hat trick with a fine shot from distance.
The Bluebirds play Melksham Town at Hardenhuish Park in the next round.
