TWO goals in the space of a minute saw Chal­font Wasps climb to third in Hel­lenic Di­vi­sion One East on New Year’s Eve.

Hosts Did­cot Town Re­serves took the lead when the un­for­tu­nate Michael Green put through his own net early on but two goals in 60 sec­onds just be­fore the in­ter­val turned the game on its head.

Josh Urquhart scored from a closerange re­bound a minute be­fore the break and, right on the stroke of half time, Jack Pearce put Wasps in front with a cross-shot from the left flank.

With no fur­ther goals com­ing af­ter the break, Wasps saw out a 2-1 win, while Chris Hurst scored the only goal of the game as lead­ers Penn & Tylers Green beat sec­ond-placed Wood­ley United.

In the Premier Di­vi­sion, Dan Rap­ley was the hat-trick hero as Flack­well Heath fin­ished 2016 with a flour­ish by ham­mer­ing Hen­ley Town 7-1, with Joe Blount bag­ging a brace and Dan Bayliss and Jack Thom­son-Wheeler also scor­ing.

Wasps host Sand­hurst Town on Satur­day while Penn wel­come Chin­nor. Flack­well also have home games, against Burn­ham on Satur­day and against Brack­nell Town, in the Berks & Bucks Se­nior Tro­phy, on Tues­day night.

Over in the Spar­tan South Mid­lands League, goals from Gary Lines and Eliot Derby were not enough to pre­vent Holmer Green slip­ping closer to the Premier Di­vi­sion dan­ger zone with a 4-2 de­feat at Tring Ath­letic.

Che­sham United Re­serves lost to the only goal of the game against Winslow United in Di­vi­sion One while Amer­sham Town went down 3-1 at As­ton Clin­ton in Di­vi­sion Two, despite a Nathan Kelly strike. Holmer visit Amer­sham in the Wy­combe Se­nior Cup next Tues­day, be­fore which they visit Gren­don Rangers.

Che­sham travel to Buck­ing­ham Town on Satur­day.
