8:00pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Gloucestershire Sport
Slimbridge progressed to the second round of the GFA Trophy with a close-fought win over Brimscombe after an entertaining game at Wisloe Road.
The winning goal came in the first half, when, with 25 minutes on the clock, Jack Twyman played in Dean Turner and his shot took a slight deflection on the way past Brimscombe keeper Lee Pritchard.
The second period saw opportunities for both sides, but the Swans hung on to earn a trip to Cirencester Town Development in the second round. A date for this tie has to be arranged.
Slimbridge: Evans, Robinson (Nash 20), Wellon, Halford, Bennett, Cole, Twyman, Parrott (Martin 82), Roberts, Philp (Kinnear 65), Turner.
Star man: Niall Halford.
