Dan Horscroft strike sends Woodley United up to 12th and Binfield seal late point at home




Danny Horscroft scored the only goal of the game on the half hour mark as Woodley United beat Fairford Town 1-0 in Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division.

It was a hard earned fourth win of the season for James Anderson’s side at bottom of the table Fairford in Wiltshire and their second in a row after last weekends defeat of Brackley Town Saints.

Binfield picked up a point in a 2-2 draw with Tuffley Rovers at Hill Farm Lane. Ian Davies opened the scoring for the Moles but it took a late own goal from a Josh Howell free kick to earn a share of the points after Rovers had taken a 2-1 lead.
