Allen strikes again to fire Holmer Green into semis

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THREE goals in as many games from Dean Allen booked Holmer Green a county cup semi-fi­nal spot and moved them up to their equal high­est league po­si­tion of the sea­son.

Allen scored the only goal of the game against Cock­fos­ters on Satur­day to move the Greens up to sixth in the Spar­tan South Mid­lands Premier, al­though mid­week re­sults pushed them back down to sev­enth.

While that was hap­pen­ing on Tues­day night, Holmer were busy knock­ing Hel­lenic Premier side Mil­ton United out of the Berks & Bucks Se­nior Tro­phy quar­ter-fi­nals.

Holmer ap­peared to be cruis­ing when goals from Allen, Joe Collins, Ryan Wil­mott and James Bur­rell put them 4-1, but Mil­ton pulled it back to 4-3 be­fore Allen clinched a 5-3 win with his se­cond of the night.

In Divi­sion One, Che­sham United re­serves lost 4-2 at home to Hilling­don Bor­ough, de­spite goals from Jack Har­ris and Jay Caines, while a Cal­lum Neal was not enough for Amer­sham Town as they went down 2-1 at Tot­ten­hoe in Divi­sion Two.

This Satur­day sees Holmer visit Hare­field United, Che­sham host Broad­fields United and Amer­sham travel to As­ton Clin­ton. Holmer then wel­come Berkham­sted on Tues­day, and Che­sham host Ris­bor­ough Rangers on Wed­nes­day.
