STRATFORD Town returned to action following a three-week, weather-enforced break in some style with a 4-1 victory at Didcot Town on Saturday.
Their last outing was a 4-0 success at Calor Southern League Division One South & West play-off hopefuls North Leigh on 28th December. But Carl Adams’ side showed no sign of rustiness in a comprehensive win.
They had to come from behind after Didcot took a sixth-minute lead through on-loan Reading Academy player Germaine Ofori, who swept the ball home from 15 yards past Town keeper Andy Kemp.
But a 23rd minute strike from man-of-the-match Chris Sterling ensured Town went in level at half-time and they went on to dominate the game in the second-half.
Leading scorer Richard Gregory scored his 23rd league goal of the season from the penalty spot after Sterling had been brought down in the box to make it 2-1 just after the hour-mark.
On 77 minutes, Jamie Sheldon reacted the quickest to fire in the third goal before the two Stratford substitutes combined to seal the game in stoppage-time when Tyrone Fagan followed up Sean Brain’s blocked shot to score goal number four.
Town manager Carl Adams said: “Once again I thought that we were outstanding. We built on our success at North Leigh in our last game with another complete team performance. And for us to score four goals in consecutive away games shows that we are now definitely moving in the right direction.”
