CHIPPENHAM Town boss Mike Cook said Uxbridge were “not that great” after the Isthmian League South Central Division side beat the Bluebirds 1-0 in the second round of the FA Trophy on Saturday.

Alex Witham’s 70th-minute goal consigned the National League South team to a shock exit in a competition in which they have never reached the third round.

Despite having almost 30 shots at goal throughout the 90 minutes, the Bluebirds lacked a cutting edge as multiple chances were wasted.

Meanwhile, non-league step-four Uxbridge took one of their key opportunities in clinical style late on.

Chippenham’s week failed to improve on Tuesday night as they lost 1-0 away at Salisbury in the Wiltshire Premier Shield.

Speaking to club media after Saturday’s defeat, Cook said: “I don’t think they were that great, they just came to sit behind the ball. Even with the windy conditions, they were still doing that a little bit in the second half as well.

“For them being second in their league, I just expected a little bit more to be honest. That’s why it’s even more disappointing that we haven’t won the game.”

Ugly scenes marred the end of the game after a highly disappointing result for Chippenham.

According to those who went down the tunnel at the Thornbury Surfacing Stadium at full-time, a member of Uxbridge Football Club kicked in a door – something that left a sour taste in Cook’s mouth.

He said: “Not very classy from them, kicking in our (changing room) door.

“There’s a way to win and lose – hopefully, we’ve lost in the correct way. I don’t think they’ve quite won in the correct way if I’m being brutally honest. We’ll have to send them a bill for the door, which I’m sure they’ll be happy to pay.

“I just thought they were not anything great, and we should have won that game easily. Anybody who came could see that – that’s what is so disappointing.”

Meanwhile, former Chippenham Town defender Greg Tindle has decided to retire from football.

The dominant defender captained the Bluebirds to the Southern League Premier Division title in the 2016-17 campaign and spent the majority of his career at Hardenhuish Park.

After battling through the pain of an on-going hip issue for some time, Tindle made the call to retire following a 2-0 win for current side, Melksham Town against Highworth Town last Saturday.
