Severn Sport made our first ever trip to The Meadow for Brimscombe & Thrupp’s visit of Royal Wootton Bassett Town this past Saturday (14 October) and boy, was it one to remember!
A favourite of groundhoppers from all over the country, our very own Ryan Butler was instantly taken in by the unique surroundings of the picturesque ground on the edge of Stroud.
Joined by Longlevens centre half Luke Kavanagh on commentary and Severn Sport Night In co-host Kelsey De Maria on social media, the team witnessed an excellent display of football on the notorious sloping pitch.
Taking the lead inside two minutes courtesy of Sam Blackie, Brimscombe controlled the first half, before Blackie added to his tally just before half-time.
The second half was much the same, with the hosts asserting themselves on their opponents, who had won nine on the spin before coming up against the in-form Lilywhites.
Down by two and facing a literal uphill task, the visitors committed men forward only to be caught out on the break, where Ollie Pitt was on hand to find Elijah Simpson at the back post who made no mistake with the goal at his mercy.
