Binfield back to winning ways in Hellenic League Premier




It started with a Floodlit Cup win at Windsor on Tuesday, but Binfield are finally back to winning ways in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division.

The Moles beat Flackwell Heath 2-1 on Saturday as goals from Stephen Peacock and Ian Davies gave Roger Herridge’s side a 2-0 lead before the Heathens pulled one back on 85 minutes.

New-signing Idris Kamara went straight in to the side with manager Herridge saying after the game: ” An ugly win but fully deserved , I have missed this feeling on a Saturday night. Hard graft won the points today. A brilliant debut by Idris Kamara and a top goalkeeping performance by Dave Lyons. The rest weren’t bad either!.

Elsewhere in the Hellenic Premier, Ascot United were held to a 1-1 draw by Royal Wootton Bassett Town, Luqman Kassim with the goal for the Yellamen while Reading City lost 2-0 at Holmer Green.

In Division One East, a poor first half did for Woodley United as they lost 3-2 at home to Chalvey Sports. The Stabmonks were 3-0 up at half time but a Jono Malone goal and an own goal in the final minute made things a bit more respectable.

AFC Aldermaston kept pace with Burnham at the top of the table, beating Wallingford Town 6-1 while Wokingham & Emmbrook beat Burghfield 2-1 to advance in the Reading Senior Cup – Elliot Rushforth and Ellis Day with the Sumas goals.

Bracknell Town stayed in the hunt for top spot in the Bostik League South Central Division One with a 2-0 win at home to Chalfont St Peter. Captain Dave Hancock is making a habit of first half goals with the opener after 16 minutes and Adam Cornell made it safe on 43 minutes.

The game was notable at the other end of the pitch as manager Geoff Warner started goalkeeper Mark Scott, his first appearance since an injury in January.

In the Vanarama National League, Maidenhead United’s trip up to the Fylde coast ended in a 2-1 defeat.

Ryan Upward had given the Magpies, who have three players on international duty later this month, a 1-0 lead after 11 minutes but play off chasing AFC Fylde hit back either side of half time.

National League South side Slough Town got back to winning ways with a 1-0 win at home to Hemel Hempstead Town thanks to a Lee Togwell strike.

Wondering what happened to Hungerford Town and Thatcham Town? Matt Smith’s West Berkshire round up is here.

Last but not least, no goals for either side in the Combined Counties League Division One as Sandhurst Town suffered a 2-0 home defeat to second placed Frimley Green and Eversley & California were beaten 5-0 at Sheerwater.
