Saracens keep Trophy bid alive
FAIRFORD TOWN 0 CHELTENHAM SARACENS 2
FAIRFORD Town were knocked out of the GFA Challenge Trophy by Cheltenham Saracens at Cinder Lane.
While England's World Cup qualifier in Poland was a wash-out, there were no such problems for this first-round tie on a fine October night in Gloucestershire.
The visitors opened the scoring with striker Ethan Moore heading home a superb cross into the box to put the Hellenic Premier Division side ahead with 33 minutes on the clock.

Shortly after the goal, Fairford goalkeeper Rob Brown, on loan from Forest Green Rovers, was forced off with an ankle injury after landing awkwardly. He was replaced by Ben Mitchell, himself having just recovered from a similar injury sustained in training over a month ago.
The final goal of the night arrived seven minutes before time, Jamie Hammond capitalizing on a loose ball at the back to curl home past Mitchell.
