A&C con­tinue fly­ing start

Men’s team chalk up five wins out of five, but boss warns of com­pla­cency in the team

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.
