A&C continue flying start
Men’s team chalk up five wins out of five, but boss warns of complacency in the team
further, they demolished nearest rivals Ramgarhia, who were also unbeaten before the game, 4-1 on Saturday, thanks to a hat-trick from short corner specialist Chris Yoxall and a Thomas McKinley strike.
Brown said: “That’s five on the bounce now.
“We were the only two unbeaten teams in the league, but we tried to treat it like any other game, and we went into it with strong preparations and the right mindset.
“We can’t get complacent though and start thinking we only have to show up to win games. We’re well aware that Ramgarhia are the first top team we have played and the other four have all been down at the bottom.
“It’s been a strong start and we’re up there to be shot at. Other teams will want to beat us now, but beating Ramgarhia sends out a message to the rest of the league that we’re in a good position to keep out unbeaten run going.”
Yoxall took the plaudits for his treble, but keeper Dan Lovelace also contributed at the other end with some important saves, while Gary Noble, having returned from Reading, is having a steady influence on the side.
Also topping the table, in MBBO Division Three, are Gerrards Cross men’s firsts, who went to the summit with a 6-2 hammering of basement side Oxford fifths.
Stuart Coulton, Alex Hattam and Marcus Wilson all bagged braces for the Cross.
Over in Trysports Hockey League Premier One, Cathy Hollies and Alice Keddy both struck twice for Amersham & Chalfont Ladies firsts, but it was not enough to take all the points as they were held 4-4 by Reading Ladies seconds.
Gerrards Cross Ladies, meanwhile, were not in action.
