Last Sunday Hungerford Town U11s had the opportunity to play a match on the County Ground pitch – home of Swindon Town FC.
Chosen specifically by our opponents Wroughton to participate, the two teams put on a fantastic show, a hugely entertaining match with more twists, turns and drama than the usual Swindon Town match.
Despite being two goals down early on, Hungerford rallied to level at 2-2, before going 4-2 down soon after. A third Hungerford goal reduced the deficit to one goal at half time.
The second half saw us score twice within the first ten minutes – the second of these was an incredible strike from inside our own half, and we found ourselves in front for the first time at 5-4. Some heroic goalkeeping and at times frantic defending saw us hold the lead til the final whistle – a fantastic result!
Well done to the players and thanks to Wroughton for inviting us!
