Report: Swindon Supermarine 0-6 Robins

12 July 2023

The Robins continued their strong start to pre-season with a 6-0 victory over Swindon Supermarine.

Academy scholar Freddy Willcox netted two whilst Grant Horton, Will Ferry, Tom King and James Olayinka were also on the scoresheet. 

Wade Elliott's men took the lead on the 15-minute mark, after some good work from Dan Adshead and Rob Street down the right saw the ball worked to Willcox, who fired home from the edge of the box. 

The Robins had a second eight minutes later when a cross from the right once again, was bundled home this time by Ferry from close range.

Willcox added his second and the Robins' third a minute later, when Ferry raced down the left flank before pulling it back to the youngster to slot home.

And it was 4-0 five minutes before the break, as Horton, up from the back, beat his man with ease before curling a left-footed effort straight into the top corner giving Supermarine keeper Mac Boyd no chance. 

On the hour mark as he did with the Evesham game, Elliott changed the team around with a new XI on the pitch for the final 30 minutes.

It was five just moments later when the lively Tom King headed home a George Lloyd cross just seconds after the academy scholar had an effort saved off the line. 

And it was Olayinka who netted the pick of the bunch on 67 minutes as the ball came out to the midfielder before he blasted a controlled strike from 25 yards straight into the right bottom corner.

Attentions for the Robins now turn to Saturday, as we head South to take on National League South outfit Weston Super Mare, kick-off at 3pm.
