A memorable day saw the Peacocks chalk up a terrific 32nd Evo-Stik League game undefeated with a 2-1 victory over Bristol Manor Farm at the Viridor Stadium yesterday afternoon (21st April).

There was a party atmosphere around the ground as Town secured a deserved win despite the narrow scoreline. Farm keeper Ashley Clark had already made several saves before he was beaten after 34 minutes when Matt Buse glanced in a header from Craig Veal’s cross to put Town one up. Clark denied Ben Adelsbury from a free kick when play resumed before Troy Simpson equalised for the visitors on 67 minutes with a snapshot from the edge of the box.Town were not to be denied though and Dan Sullivan netted the winner with 15 minutes remaining when his cross-shot from the right drifted over Farm keeper Ashley Clark to land in the far corner. Following the game the Peacocks were presented with the West Division Championship shield by Southern League Chairman Terry Barratt and the celebrations could begin.

Reaction | Manager Leigh Robinson remarked: “A brilliant day for everyone involved with the club and one that will live long in the memory. We were determined to win as it would have felt bizarre to not win but pick up the league trophy. It was quite a close game with a lot less chances than I thought there’d be to be honest. The winning goal was admittedly a bit fortunate but their keeper did make three or four great saves to keep them in it so I think we just about shaded it. The team basically did what they have done all season, found a way to win and all credit to them.”
