Swindon Supermarine brushed aside lowly Bridgwater Town as they netted five away goals for the second league match running, writes Josh Bird.

The 5-0 success in Somerset means Supermarine sit fourth in the Evo Stik Division One South & West table and boss Dave Webb lauded his players after another comfortable away triumph.

“We knew it was going to be difficult after their fantastic result against Tiverton in midweek,” he said.

“But credit to the players, they were absolutely magnificent today.

“It was a great performance and the first half was probably as high a level as we have reached all season.”

After an early chance for the hosts was headed over by Jake Horsey, Supermarine stamped their authority on the encounter with Josh Parsons curling in the opening goal on six minutes.

Connor Waldon was able to double the lead shortly before the half hour mark as he slotted in a cross from Joe Selman before captain Ash Taylor scored a third before the interval.

Bridgwater were far better in the second half but Supermarine were still able to register two further goals, both in the last ten minutes, as George Reid rounded the keeper to score before Callum Parsons found the bottom corner to complete the scoring.

“In the second half Bridgwater came out and changed a few things to make it a bit more difficult for us but we still scored two goals,” Webb said.

“Five goals and a clean sheet away from home, I can’t ask for much more.

“We had five different goal scorers today which is always nice to see but everyone today was excellent.

“Josh Parsons, I thought, reached a level that I know he is capable of and he ran the game today.

“Credit to him, he scored a great goal to get us 1-0 up and all through the game he caused them massive problems.

“He is a big player for us and when he plays like that everything ticks around him and he was definitely the catalyst today.”

League leaders Hereford visit the Webbs Wood Stadium on Tuesday night, a match Webb is looking forward to particularly with his side in such a rich vein of form.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” he said.

“You always look out for the big teams and they’re riding high at the top of the league.

“They are a massive football club with great history and get massive gates when they play at home.

“We expect there will be a massive crowd on Tuesday and we’re really looking forward to it.

“It’s a great opportunity for the players to test themselves against the best team in the league and we couldn’t be going into it in better form.”
