A goal in either half for Shane Cooper-Clark was enough to see Thatcham Town progress to round one of the FA Trophy after they beat Cirencester Town 2-0.

The Kingfishers forward fired his side ahead after 25 minutes when his first-time effort found the bottom left corner after a long throw-in from Curtis Angell.

Town had the lead at the break and doubled their lead on the hour mark as Cooper-Clark raced through on goal to slot the ball past the Cirencester keeper.

Thatcham pushed for a third and had a number of opportunities, but the score remained the same.
