Tuesday 19th September 2017, Gloucestershire FA Senior Challenge Cup- Round 1, Attendance 90
Cinderford Town….2 Mangotsfield United….1
Changes before this game saw Michael Bryant & James Fisher leave the club whilst Manager Wayne Thorne brought in Jake Gardner from Odd Down FC. Despite holding the lead at the interval, ‘The Field’ succumbed to a late penalty, which saw ‘The Foresters’ edge into the next round. Once again, loanee keeper Thom Jonkerman enhanced his growing reputation with some fine saves as the hosts pushed forward after the break.
Cinderford opened very positively and were twice denied by the woodwork, with Jonkerman also keeping them at bay with a superb stop, whilst at the other end, Sam Jenkins saw his effort sail high & wide, but after 37 minutes, the visitors took the lead. A well-worked move started by Kyle Knott, saw Lewis Ellington lay the ball off to Nick Peare, who finished well.0-1.
Before the break, ‘The Field’ could have added to their lead as George Lloyd produced a decent cross, only for Steve Davies to steer his header marginally wide.
HT: Foresters…0 Mangos…1
Just six minutes into the second-half, with Cinderford starting to increase the pressure, they were level through Andy Lewis. 1-1. Mangotsfield’s Lewis Ellington fired wide when well-placed but in the 88th minute, the hosts were awarded a penalty, which Andy Lewis converted. 2-1.
Mangotsfield thought they had rescued the game when George Lloyd netted but the Assistant’s flag denied him, so Cinderford edged into the next round, where they will host Forest Green Rovers Reserves.
