STRATFORD Town were beaten 3-1 in their latest Calor Southern League Division One South & West game at Swindon Supermarine on Wednesday.
They trailed by two goals at the break after goals from Aaron Ferris and the outstanding Kayden Jackson before reducing the deficit with a Richard Gregory penalty in the second-half.
But another penalty award in favour of the hosts converted by Jackson condemned Town to their second defeat of the season and piloted the Wiltshire club to the top of the table.
Manager Carl Adams reflected on the defeat: “I was disappointed with our performance on Wednesday. We’re in a tougher league this season and we are being punished for our mistakes. At times we are just too naïve.
“Having said that they had a player who was just different class to anyone else on the pitch, and we were still in the game until their penalty.
“And we’ve still picked up seven points from our first five games — I’m sure we would have taken that at the start of the season.”
Town are back in action this Saturday when they host Godalming Town. Kick-off at the DCS Stadium is 3pm.
With a free Saturday available on 14th September following their FA Cup exit, Stratford have rearranged their away game against Paulton Rovers on that date. The game was originally scheduled for 23rd November but Rovers are also out of the cup.
