Tivvy started the new year in emphatic style‚ thumping Cinderford 6 -1 with a superb performance from all the team. Paul Edwards was outstanding in goal‚ pulling off a string of breathtaking saves. Kevin Nancekivell scored four and Pete Varley ran the defence ragged. Nicky Marker slotted into the side with consummate ease with a flawless and excellent performance giving Tivvy a very solid and balanced appearance.

For all their possession and approach play‚ it took until the 35th minute to get the first goal. Luke Vinnicombe crossed the ball to Scott Rogers‚ on for the injured Steve Daly‚ whose shot was parried (hand) by a defender. The ball fell nicely for Kevin Nancekivell who fired home. Tivvy´s second came on 44 minutes following good work from Kevin Nancekivell who sent in a surperb cross for the diving Dominic Richardson to nod home.

Tivvy were‚ by now‚ rampant and just one minute later scored their third goal. A lovely ball across the face of the goal was met by Pete Varley who‚ in one single move‚ put the ball back across the goal to Kevin Nancekivell who had the simple task of tapping the ball into the net.

Tivvy´s fourth was scored by Steve Ovens‚ on for Dominic Richardson‚ who following good work in front of goal picked his spot and fired into the top left corner. Cinderford scored a consolation goal on 84 minutes‚ but Tivvy soon replied when on 85 minutes when Kevin Nancekivell (again) scored their fifth goal. A nice cross from the hard working Phil Everett was met by Steve Ovens who headed the ball back across for Kevin to simply tap home‚ and on 90 minutes it was that man again‚ Kevin Nancekivell who headed home from a superb cross from Phil Everett.

Tiverton Town: Paul Edwards‚ Lule Vinnicombe‚ Neil Saunders‚ Paul Tatterton‚ Nicky Marker‚ Pete Conning‚ Kevin Nancekivell‚ Peter Varley (Stuart Smith 82)‚ Phil Everett. Steve Daly (Scott Rogers 5)‚ Dominic Richardson (Steve Ovens 76)
