11 try Aaron joined A&C af­ter wife was re­cruited as physio

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Debu­tant Harry Tucker and re­cent ar­rival James Harding were among the goals as the Rams won 4-1 to stretch their un­beaten run to four matches. Vic­tory keeps the Hol­loways Park side ninth in South­ern One Cen­tral and just within reach of the 74 points boss Warner set re­cently

as the fig­ure needed to fea­ture in the play-offs.

How­ever, with max­i­mum points needed from now un­til the end of the cam­paign to reach that tar­get, Warner con­cedes it is a feat be­yond his fledg­ling side.

“We would have to win our last six games to reach 74 points, and I can’t see us do­ing that, but we are look­ing for­ward to all the re­main­ing games, in par­tic­u­lar Ayles­bury and St Ives,” he said.

“Al­though we won’t get in the play­offs our­selves, we will still have a say in them be­cause of our games against those sides.

“And we’ll have a say in the rel­e­ga­tion is­sue as well be­cause we have got Ayles­bury United and North Green­ford United to play as well.”

Pro­mo­tion am­bi­tions sur­ren­dered or not, Bea­cons­field con­firmed their re­cent up­turn in for­tunes on the road with their hand­some win over the Mag­pies. Tucker took just eight min­utes to open his goal ac­count when

he volleyed home the opener, a lead Sam Dead­field dou­bled with his se­cond headed goal in as many games be­fore the break.

Harding and Aaron Min­has both struck in quick suc­ces­sion af­ter the in­ter­val, mean­ing a goal for the hosts in the fi­nal minute was barely con­so­la­tion.

Given the tur­moil of last sea­son, when a more ex­pe­ri­enced side only just man­aged to beat the drop, Warner be­lieves wher­ever they fin­ish this term will mark a big step for­ward.

“When you look at last year we were third from bot­tom and, don’t for­get, we had peo­ple like Vic­tor Osubu, Kofi Lock­hart-Adams and Jor­dan Ajan­lekoko then,” he added.

“We have not got play­ers of that kind of ex­pe­ri­ence here at the mo­ment, so I would like to think the peo­ple at Bea­cons­field would be proud of what we have done this sea­son – I cer­tainly am.”

Bea­cons­field host North Green­ford on Satur­day be­fore trav­el­ling to Uxbridge on Mon­day.
