11 goals in Oxon as AFC Aldermaston triumph

Bracknell Town win first fixture since managerial departure

11 goals in Oxon as AFC Aldermaston triumph

In Oxfordshire, AFC Aldermaston edged out Kidlington Development in an 11 goal thriller as Dave Tuttle got his reign in West Berkshire off to a good start.

The former Millwall manager took charge of his first game since being appointed at the weekend and will have been cheered as his side raced to a 3-1 and then 4-2 lead inside the opening half an hour.

As the half time whistle blew it was 5-3, you’ve got to feel for our man Rob Davies who definitely picked the right game (some of us made the poor choice of Bristol Rovers vs Bolton Wanderers).

As the second half got underway, Kidlington made it 5-4 with Aldermaston replying shortly after. 6-4

‘A Kidlington substitution sees them bring on another forward, exactly what this game needs!’

There was still time for a late goal as well, Kidlington making it 6-5 at the death but the Atom Men held on for the win.

We await confirmation via the FA Full Time website but the Atomics scorers were Monay Chandler-Mills (2), Davelino Markus (2) and Jamel Forde-Small (2).

Bracknell Town made it four wins out of four in Group 5 of the Velocity Trophy when they beat Westfield 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Nathan Minhas and a Seb Bowerman double put the Robins 3-0 up against the Isthmian League Division One South Central high flyers but Westfield hit back with a consolation strike on 56 minutes.

The Robins were led by Mark Tallentire and Aaron Steadman on the night following the departure of manager Sam Lock, which was confirmed after the game.

Bracknell look good to qualify for the knock out stages and have one more game at home to Chalfont St Peter on Wednesday 6th November to complete the group stage.
