A ninth minute header for Binfield debutant Adam Cornell ensured Binfield would maintain pressure on top of the table Westfield in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier title race.
Cornell scored early in the 1-0 win over Lydney Town from Jack Thompson-Wheeler’s cross, rising highest to beat Richard Thomas in goal.
