WOODS SAVES AMER­SHAM

AMER­SHAM Town had keeper Cal­lum Woods to thank for a scrappy, hard-fought 3-2 win at Clean Slate in Spar­tan South Mid­lands Divi­sion Two on Satur­day.

Town took the lead when an un­marked Lewis Smith headed in pow­er­fully from a cor­ner and went fur­ther ahead when in­ter­play be­tween Tom­mee Seaton and Ryan Luke pro­duced a long cross which Simeon Awoliyi headed back across goal for Ber­tie Squires-Adams to fire home.

The hosts pulled a goal back im­me­di­ately af­ter the break when a teas­ing cross was headed clear by Char­lie Walker only as far as a Clean Slate striker. How­ever, Awoliyi then col­lected a throw from the left, cut in­side and un­leashed a fierce 30-yard shot into the roof of the net.

Woods pulled off a fine save from a free-kick at the other end and, although beaten from the spot with 13 min­utes left, he made two fur­ther fine saves to se­cure the points.

In Divi­sion One, an Ab­dul Ally strike was not enough as Che­sham United Re­serves lost 2-1 to Hadley Wood & Win­gate then crashed 7-1 at Big­gleswade on Tues­day night. In the Premier, a Ben Hodges strike earned Holmer Green a 1-1 draw against Ox­hey Jets.

FIFIELD GETS OFF THE MARK

TOM Fifield opened his ac­count as Chal­font Wasps com­pleted the Metropoli­tan Line dou­ble over Rayn­ers Lane in Hel­lenic Divi­sion One East on Satur­day.

Fifield broke the dead­lock five min­utes be­fore half time when Pardeep Ghat­toara broke down the left and pulled a lovely ball back for his team­mate to side­foot home. The se­cond also came from a charge down the left from Ghat­toara, earn­ing a cor­ner from which Fifield sent over a per­fect de­liv­ery for cen­tre-back Michael Green to head in.

Green added a se­cond from close range be­fore Nick Lit­tle wrapped up a 4-0 win, los­ing his marker to nod into the top cor­ner from Steven Not­tMa­caire’s near-post de­liv­ery.

For­mer Wasp Fred Tripp hit a hat-trick, with Dean Mun­day also net­ting, as Penn & Tylers Green beat Wok­ing­ham & Emm­brook 4-2. Goals from Dan Rap­ley, Jamie Es­sex and Liam Tack earned Flack­well Heath a 3-0 Premier Divi­sion win over Ard­ley United on Tues­day night.

RUS­SELL FIRES TOWN THROUGH

AMER­SHAM Town un­der-15s knocked Bea­cons­field Town out of the Wy­combe & South Bucks League Cup 7-1. Harry Rus­sell hit two with Noah Ri­ley, Euan Anderson, Harry Brandon, Cameron Flax­man and Ainle McGuinn also scor­ing. Town visit South­side FC, of Milton Keynes, in the fourth round on De­cem­ber 4.

That fol­lowed a cup win at Chal­font Saints, where Amer­sham won a penalty shoot-out 5-4 in the Berks & Bucks Cup, keeper Sam Turner O’Toole sav­ing a cru­cial spot-kick be­fore scor­ing the win­ning penalty him­self, the first he has ever taken.
