Reds continue top of the table form with impressive away display
FAIRFORD Town continued their impressive goalscoring form with a 6-1 away win at Shortwood United Reserves on Saturday.
After back to back 5-0 wins at home, the Reds hit six this time on the road – ahead of the Bank Holiday encounter with Letcombe at Cinder Lane on Monday.
Fairford made a fast start and were 4-0 up inside 19 minutes. Jack Ellis hit the opener on six minutes from a Jason Milhench cross before the latter doubled the advantage soon after. Ellis doubled his personal tally with a fine effort on 16 minutes before the fourth from Luke Cordery with a well-taken header.
The visitors went in 4-0 up at the break and hit a fifth of the afternoon just before the hour with Ellis completing his hat-trick. Danny Hale scored the sixth, from the penalty spot, and was denied a Fairford seventh after another spot-kick was saved late on.
Ayomide Ajijedidun scored a late consolation for the home side, his fifth goal in just two games.
