Davies eyes title trip

FAIRFORD Town could clinch the first leg of a historic treble for the club when they travel to Cirencester Town Development tomorrow.

Having booked their place in the final of the Gloucestershire FA Challenge Trophy on Tuesday night with a 3-1 win at Toolstation Premier League leaders Bristol Manor Farm, Gareth Davies’ side could complete the first piece of the jigsaw at the Corinium Stadium, with a quarter-final of the Supplementary Cup still to come.

The Cinder Lane side sit 11 points clear at the top of the Hellenic League Division One West table, knowing a win and a slip up for Hook Norton, who are 12 points behind with five games remaining and a vastly inferior goal difference, could clinch the title.

“After Tuesday night and the performance, if we play like that in the next five games, we’ll do alright,” said Davies, speaking to the Swindon Advertiser.

“I think Abingdon did us a bit of a favour on Tuesday, beating Hook Norton. I think now, we have spoken to the players about it, we know what is at stake and we just need to do it now.

“I want to say it is in our hands, we know what we need to do and we have got five games to do it in but it would be nice to do it on Saturday.”
