Biggest defeat since 2006

A second half mauling by Merthyr inflicted our biggest defeat since we travelled to Truro in August 2006 and came away on the wrong end of a 8-1 scoreline.
We gave away our customary goal within 2 minutes and followed that with another gift on 6 mins.
After some hard work we pulled it back to 1-2 with a fine effort from Jesse Walters to give us a fighting chance in the second half.

Conceding 6 goals in the second half wasn't really in the game plan but somehow it happened.
The Merthry fans were loving it and the chant rang out ' We want 10' which is something I never thought I'd hear at the Rec from away fans.

A stunned Shrewton came off the field on the wrong end of a 1-8 defeat.

No game this weekend so we have to wait till Saturday 5th March before we can try and put this behind us.

Devizes just edge it

Tough game against Devizes Town brought us no reward as we lost to the odd goal in 3.
Another early goal conceded by us had the team having to battle into the game again.
Craig Lewis equalised on the quarter hour and we pressed on to try and take the lead.
HT the score was 1-1 and all to play for.
Second half was mostly Shrewton's and Devizes were restricted to the odd break.
Unfortunately with 15 minutes to go one of those breaks brought a second goal  for Devizes and they hung on to record their 11th straight league win and moved them up to 3rd.
FT 1-2

Two second half goals from Mike Brownless and Jess Walters were just enough to see off Chard Town who we've beaten home and away this season, which is nice as they did the same to us last year.
