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