Evesham United striker Mark Magee is looking forward to keeping his place the EVO-STIK League Southern club’s history books for years to come after scoring the quickest goal recorded at the Jubilee Stadium since it opened in 2012.
Before scoring again at the weekend in a 2-0 win for the fourth-placed play-off chasers against his former club Bishop’s Cleeve, the former Bristol City youngster put Paul Collicutt’s men ahead just 22 seconds into last Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw with Swindon Supermarine.
Magee, who’s also played in Iceland and last season was at Stratford Town, joined the Robins back in September and capitalised on a misplaced pass to set a new record in the EVO-STIK League Southern Division One South & West clash, rearranged after floodlight failure led to the abandonment of the original fixture in February.
The Robins, who travel to third placed Tiverton Town on Saturday in a play-off spot six pointer, have been running matchday minibuses for fans from Evesham High Street to and from their home on the outskirts of town again this season. The free service is open to all fans attending home games.
Former Manchester United and Aston Villa manager Ron Atkinson officially opened the club’s new ground on 7 July 2012 before Evesham United Old Boys kicked off against a Manchester United Legends side.
