Swindon Supermarine boss Dave Webb talks to Swindon 105.5 presenter Nick Taylor after his side crashed out of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Having warned his players about Winchester City’s firepower before the tie, the Supermarine boss could only watch on as the Southern League Division One South & West League’s top scorers romped to a 4-0 victory at the Webbswood Stadium.

Webb had also highlighted the danger of Winchester frontman Warren Bentley prior to the match and it was that man who did most of the damage, scoring twice for the visitors.

Missed chances eventually cost Swindon Supermarine dear with Webb ruing a miss by Ash Edenborough early on which would have given his side the lead.

The Supermarine striker burst through on the Winchester City goal only to be denied at the crucial moment.

And Winchester took full advantage of that miss when Bentley got on the end of Zach Glasspool’s shot to give the visitors the lead.

Jamie Barron then made the most of some sloppy defending by Supermarine as he fired home from 25 yards to double Winchester’s tally.

Supermarine’s Bradley Gray then scooped over from just five yards before Bentley added his second, as he slotted home from 20 yards.

The home side’s woes were complete in the latter stages of the match when Dan Cann fired home direct from a free-kick.

After the defeat Webb confirmed that striker Connor Waldon had left the club to sign for Mangotsfield.

He also revealed that Supermarine are close to bringing defender Marcus Schuster-Johnson back to the club – a deal which Webb hopes to conclude before Saturday’s home clash against league leaders North Leigh.
