Cinderford Town manager Stephen Cleal says he is happy that his young side have started their 2020/21 season with a win after advancing in the FA Cup.
A late Zak Drew winner was enough to earn the Foresters a 2-1 win over local rivals Brimscombe & Thrupp at the Meadow and sees Cinderford make the First Qualifying Round draw on Monday.
Cinderford took the lead through Yesh Lomety’s looping effort from 25 yards before Dylan Morgan equalised for the hosts just before the break.
The impressive Drew grabbed a winner late on in the second half to send the Cinderford fans in attendance and players on the pitch into raptures.
