Slimbridge new boy Myron Turner marked his second debut for Slimbridge with a man of the match performance last night, after making the switch from Hellenic Premier side Longlevens.
Turner joins the Swans after an initial dual registration at the end of the 2017/18 season. Having started this season with Longlevens, the move was always on the table for the former Frampton United man.
The midfielder, who can play anywhere along the midfield and up front, was voted Slimbridge supporters man of the match in the 4-0 win away at Melksham Town and in process helped his new side advance in the CSS League Cup.
The Swans, who have struggled to score goals in the league so far this season, scored three first half goals and broke the deadlock inside the first five minutes when defender Korey Pring was credited with the final touch to head his side in front.
Will Hawes and Jaden Maddock went close before Hawes doubled his side’s lead just before the 20 minute mark.
Maddock and Hawes then combined to set up the third for Danny King. King, on a dual registration from National League South side Gloucester City leapt onto Hawes’ lay off to put the Swans in complete control at the back.
Ewan Dunbar rounded off the scoring for Slimbridge in the second half.
Turner was announced on club secretary Colin Gaye’s Twitter as the winner of the supporters’ man of the match for his performance and will be looking to endear himself further to the Slimbridge faithful on Saturday, when the Swans welcome Paulton Rovers to Glevum Park.
For his former side, Longlevens will be looking to replace Turner over the coming weeks as Player/Assistant Manager Craig Martin continues at the helm. Turner will be a big miss and has had a habit this season of scoring important goals.
Turner scored in his penultimate Longlevens home match, the then equaliser in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of local rivals Fairford Town.
Longlevens travel to Holmer Green and will be looking for their first league win since September, when the two sides face off on Saturday.
