Ferdinand and Leonetti rescue Binfield, Harry Swabey double in Finchampstead win




Binfield mounted a second half comeback at Longlevens AFC after going in 2-0 at the break in Gloucestershire in the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier League.

Moles boss Roger Herridge said on Thursday he believed his side wouldn’t suffer another Bracknell Town hangover but it took a second half hat-trick from Liam Ferdinand and a double from Lewis Leonetti to make good on that belief.

Ferdinand pulled one back for Binfield 53 minutes and Leonetti then twice equalised for the visitors before Ferdinand’s double.

Bracknell Town themselves came from a 5th minute Oxford City Nomads goal down to win 4-1 at Larges Lane.

TJ Bohane scored twice to out the Robins 2-1 in front and Joe Grant and Carl Davies finished things off.

There was more disappoint for Ascot United thought who went down 4-0 at the Racecourse Ground to league leaders Thame United.
