Our former striker Tony Jacques scored a hat-trick against us in a 4-2 loss away to Banbury United - as they did the double over us (6-3 agg).
Colin Moulsdale also played against us in this fixture before two seasons later coming back to play for us again, this time as captain and then as player-manager.
We are likely to play Banbury again next season.

Didn't know Tony Jacques played for us ? Hated it when he played for Banbury because he always seemed to score the winner for Banbury against us ,seem to remember we used to call him Hattie ??? Didn't put. him off all the same.

29th April 1992.

    Wishing former City forward Elliott Chamberlain a Very Happy Birthday. Elliott signed for us in 2014, he made around three appearances for us, then went onto sign for Corby Town.
 Born in Paget, Bermuda, he represented Wales at Under 19 and Under 21 Levels.

   "Well Done Jack Harris." He was a Fantastic player, fully committed. Brilliant night at Cirencester, where afterwards I was wondering could we go one step further and beat Farnborough (at there ground) in the Final? The Rest as they say is History.
