Ellis Day the difference as Bracknell Town end Binfield’s 100% record

Robins narrow gap at the top of the Allied Counties Youth League

Ellis Day the difference as Bracknell Town end Binfield’s 100% record

Binfield saw their 100% Allied Counties Youth League Central Division record ended by neighbours Bracknell Town at Larges Lane on Tuesday night.

The Moles – who had won all six of their opening league games lost 1-0 to the Robins who closed the gap at the top of the table to five points although Bracknell have played a game more than the Moles.

Ellis Day (pictured) was the man who broke the deadlock on 75 minutes, capitalising on a wayward defensive pass to score his fifth goal of the season for the Robins under 18s.

Moles striker Eddie Lee had thought he’d put his side ahead 15 minutes in but his goal was ruled out for offside.
