Marine deliver belated birthday present to Chairman Webb Swindon Supermarine made it nine games unbeaten when they beat a hard working Didcot Town 1-0 at The Webbs Wood Stadium on Saturday afternoon. With Marine Chairman Jez Webb offering free admission to all supporters in celebration of his recent 50th birthday, the bumper crowd of 416 witnessed an entertaining game with both teams playing neat & passing football on a fantastically manicured pitch.  

Didcot held the Marine offence off early doors springing their well-drilled offside trap several times before Marine keeper Josh Hill was called into action on 20 minutes, superbly blocking Louis Joyce’s back post effort. Lee Marshall’s 25 yard pile-driver was then tipped superbly onto the crossbar by Didcot keeper Leigh Bedwell.  

Two minutes later, Marine’s top scorer Josh Parsons volleyed just wide from Joe Selman’s right wing cross before former Marine forward George Reid cut inside and fired just over from the edge of the box. On 37 minutes, Parsons squandered a golden opportunity, blazing over from inside the penalty area after the ball had ricocheted off of several sets of legs.  

After the interval, the dangerous Reid again reminded the large crowd of his talents as he flashed a long range shot just over the bar, after Marine midfielder Brad Hooper had been fouled but referee Sunny Gill waved play on. Reid then thought he’d grabbed the opening goal when he nodded home from a right wing cross only to see his effort ruled out for offside.
