STRATFORD Town chalked up their fourth win of the season with a comfortable 4-0 success against lowly Guildford City at the DCS Stadium on Saturday.
A Town side containing new signings Andy Kemp and Callum Burgess from Bedworth United went ahead on 24 minutes when striker Tyrone Fagan latched on to Jamie Sheldon’s through ball before coolly slotting past City keeper Will Dukes. They had further opportunities to increase their lead but had to be content with a 1-0 half-time scoreline.
Four minutes into the second-half, Sheldon was again the provider when he set up leading scorer Richard Gregory for Town’s second goal of the afternoon. And the prolific striker scored his second goal of the game for 3-0 just after the hour-mark when Sam Adkins played him in.
Winger Simeon Tulloch sealed victory 11 minutes from time with a deflected shot past Dukes, his first goal for Stratford.
Town manager Carl Adams said: “It was a good result against admittedly a struggling team, but we still had to do the business. I was particularly pleased to keep a clean sheet.
“Kempy did well in goal for us considering he had to get to know some of the players’ names before the game while Callum Burgess was solid at the back. We also had Matt West and Loyiso Recci out through suspension and injury.
“But Tyrone [Fagan] led the line brilliantly and when we get back to full strength we will have a strong squad. With another home game next Saturday we have the chance to get more points on the board.”
Town are at home to Bishops Cleeve on Saturday while Tuesday night's scheduled home game against Clevedon Town has had to be postponed because the Somerset club are involved in a League Cup tie against Tiverton Town. That game has been rearranged for Tuesday 3rd December.
