A&C celebrate double delight on busy weekend of action
Ladies score six without reply across two days
the girls. We needed six points this weekend and they delivered them with two great performances.”
The ladies are now joint second in the Trysports Premier One table with Sonning, who they host this Saturday in their last game before the winter break.
And it was Sonning seconds who A&C’s men faced last Saturday, a 4-2 win making it 10 wins out of 10 and keeping them six points clear at the top of MBBO Division One.
After having an early James Easter strike chalked off, there was to be no reprieve for Sonning when Chris Yoxall slotted home a penalty corner, and the lead was doubled when Ranjit Sangu found Doug McAteer, whose baseline drive was met at the back post by Thomas McKinlay.
Sonning pulled one back before the break, and it took some great defensive work from Warren Scott, James Cremin and Tommy Cross to keep them at bay before McAteer found Brown at the far post to make it 3-1.
Sonning were not done, however, and pulled another back to ensure a nervy last 10 minutes, until Easter secured the points with a fantastic solo effort after picking the ball up in his own half. They seconds this Saturday.
Manager Simon Archer said: “This was a very composed Sonning team,
Ashford and they gave as good as they got for long stretches of the game, but I’m glad we came through with the three points.”
