Gosling fires Ma­clay to dou­ble de­light

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORTS -

BE­VAN

It was a clash of the sec­ond di­vi­sion’s top two – with both al­ready as­sured of pro­mo­tion – and a hard-fought game was ex­pected at Amer­sham Town.

Al­though Dan O’Sull- ivan net­ted for Fu­sion, Gosling’s two goals, and one apiece for Wilf Whit­taker and Josh Hart, earned Ma­clay a league and cup dou­ble.

Ayles­bury Floor­ing held their nerve in a penalty shoot-out in the County In­ter­me­di­ate Cup semi-fi­nal against Wind­sor York Road. Their op­po­nents went in front through a con­tro­ver­sial penalty but Floor­ing took com­mand in the sec­ond half, lev­el­ling through Jor­dan Jenk­ins’ tow­er­ing header. Three Wind­sor blanks in the shoot-out – in­clud­ing a bril­liant Ben Grasso save – were coun­tered by three Floor­ing con­ver­sions as Sam Ward, Nick Gur­ney and Tay­lor Collins sealed a mem­o­rable re­sult for the CSL new boys.

Mag­pies 91 pro­gressed to the last four of the Al­lan Moore Cup. How­ever, Di­vi­sion One side Che­sham Ath­letic put in a gutsy per­for­mance and made Mags work hard for their 4-1 suc­cess. Toby Fran­cis (2), Gary Bull and Paul Hyde made it safe for the Premier side. But af­ter Jack Grant re­duced the deficit to 2-1, Ath­letic came close to an equaliser as he hit the wood­work.

The quar­ter-fi­nal be­tween Chal­font Saints and Pi­o­neer was post- poned. The Ju­nior In­vi­ta­tion Cup group matches saw a win for Di­namo Che­quers over Old Bel­mont Pugilists while Black Horse and Pi­o­neer Re­serves shared six goals in their stale­mate.

Di­namo went through by the odd goal in five against The Pugilists with To­qeer Butt, Alex Cron­inRam­say and Ciprian Chel­sau on tar­get. Replies from Tony Holmes and Ge­orge King kept Bel­mont hopes alive, al­though King was sent off later in the match.

Black Horse had David Goss to thank for their draw with Pi­o­neer Re­serves as he struck all three goals.

How­ever that was not enough to claim the win as Justin Hutchins, Karl Har­ris and then Christian Slater re­stored par­ity for Pi­o­neer.

The day’s only league en­counter saw The Gen­er­als claim three points with a 4-2 vic­tory over Old Amer­sham.

Dale Lee, Liam Tobin, Mar­cus Hor­wood – from the spot – and man-ofthe-match Char­lie Brooks saw The Gen­er­als home.

Goals from Mar­cus Furneaux-Har­ris and Nathan Hart pro­vided some con­so­la­tion for Old Amer­sham though.
