Trowbridge won this match comfortably but really didn't play as well as they can. At times Wroughton came back into this game but it was only because Trowbridge let them. Will Astall, who was my man of the match gave Trowbridge an early lead. The home 'keeper failed to hold on to a hopeful long range effort from Neil Kirkpatrick and Will followed up to finish well. Wroughton fell further behind when an excellent cross found Neil Kirkpatrick just inside the penalty area, he controlled the ball well and finished in style. Wroughton nearly scored towards the end of the first half but for a poor finish andTown manager Alan Roberts did not seem happy at half time despite the 2-0 lead. The result was never in doubt though and in the second half Trowbridge added their third and Will Astall's second when he headed in a cross from John Taylor. Recent signing Adam Smith once again showed amazing pace, it can only be a matter of time until he opens his account.
