Luke Hayden double sinks Bracknell Town in Allied Counties clash

Binfield striker Luke Hayden struck twice as the Moles defeated Bracknell Town 3-2 in the Allied Counties Youth League South Division clash at Hill Farm Lane on Thursday night.

The Moles led 3-0 at the break with Hayden netting his double – taking his tally to five from three games in under 18s football this season – and Callum Brighton getting the other goal, before Dan Sleet’s Bracknell side rallied in the second period and scored twice through Ben Collins and Callum Wright.

The Robins featured Taylor Sheeran who captained the side after his first team debut on Tuesday night in the Floodlit Cup win over Burnham while both teams finished with ten men following the sendings-off of Callum Wright for Bracknell and Joshua Griggs for Binfield.

The result see’s Binfield maintain their winning start to the season, albeit after only two games while Bracknell have two wins and three defeats from five in the South Division.

In the Allied Counties Premier, Ascot United suffered an 8-0 defeat by second placed Oxford City.
