Shrivenham lost their fourth Opening Day fixture in as many years, after they came away from Saw Mills End with a 4-1 defeat.
Some sloppy defending was the difference between the two sides as Shrivenham conceded two goals in each half, but result aside - there were signs that the side are beginning to gel.
FA Youth Cup - Preliminary Round.
Shrivenham Youth returned from Hampshire with victory in their opening FA Youth Cup fixture against an impressive Hartley Wintney side.
With scores level at the interval, The Row went ahead during the second half courtesy of a James Beauchamp header on the line and just as it appeared that luck was not on their side, a late, late strike from Taida Tendayi with seconds remaining, saw Paul Whitewood's side earn a deserved penalty shootout.
Two saves from keeper Matthew Goldfinch proved to be the difference as Shrivvy went through 2-4 on the night to earn a trip to Camberley Town in the next round.
Shrivenham Youth rounded off their three game PSF schedule with a comfortable win at Wildsmith Meadow on Wednesday evening.
First half efforts from Taida Tendayi and Kieran Sutton (penalty) gave the side a decent lead, while Tyger Hall put the result beyond doubt shortly after the intermission.
FA Cup - EPR
Shrivenham suffered cup heartache at the first hurdle at Watchet Lane on Tuesday evening, when despite a brace from new signing Lester Davies, they didn't quite have enough to secure their place in the next round - missing out on a mouth-watering home tie against neighbours, Highworth Town.
A decent Shrivenham performance in only their third game together saw a final 6-minute collapse to allow their senior opposition a heathy score at the final whistle, but more decent minutes and new players gave hope that the future is continuing to look impressive for the Barrington Road club.
Shrivenham opened their pre-season account with a tough trip to a hugely organised and energetic Clanfield.
A 4-1 defeat resulted in Chris Hurley's men coming away knowing there's still a lot of work to do, as they look to gel as a new team as the start of the 2020-21 campaign draws ever closer.
Our thanks go to everyone at Clanfield who hosted the game last minute, following damage to the trees at the far end of Barrington Park - making dangerous to play.
Tree surgeon has been booked for Monday!
Josh Jefferies opened the scoring for Shrivvy and Kieran Sutton grabbed his first senior hattrick at the Redhouse yesterday evening in fairly spectacular fashion, while Purton managed two from two sport kicks - including one from Lewis Petrie who opened his Epilepsy Research UK Goal Challenge account.
Shrivenham Youth opened their pre-season schedule with a narrow win over a hard working men's side in what was an entertaining work out for both sides.
