EVESHAM United suffered back-to-back league defeats over the holiday weekend as they lost their second and third games of the season.

The Robins fell to a 2-0 defeat on the road at Winchester on Saturday before they slipped to a 3-0 home loss to Cirencester on Monday afternoon.

That's now three defeats on the spin for Neil Hunt's men after they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Lichfield City the weekend before.

Saturday's game was marred by ugly scenes in the second-half when Evesham's Tom Chamberlain, their new signing from Cheltenham Town, was sent-off.

They conceded five minutes from the end of both halves as Josh McCormick's free-kick and Olly Balmer's strike sunk the Robins.

Monday's game was not much better and in truth, the score could have been far worse had it not been for United's keeper Lewis Clayton making a handful of brilliant saves.

Tommy Anderson scored mid-way through the first period and Shayne Anson's superb volley doubled Ciren's lead before the break.

The hosts were better after half-time but they could not create a clear-cut chance to halve the deficit and just before the hour mark, it was 0-3 as Josh Parsons tapped home from close range.

The results leave Evesham in 15th place in the Southern League Division South table and they will be looking to halt the losing run this weekend when they make the trip down to Bristol to face Paulton Rovers at the Athletic Field (3pm kick-off).
