Lang­ford knock Amer­sham out of FA Vase de­spite tak­ing lead

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

AMER­SHAM Town were knocked out of the FA Vase by Lang­ford on Satur­day.

The 3-1 fi­nal score im­plies it was an easy vic­tory for the Di­vi­sion One side, but it was Amer­sham who took the lead with the first goal of the game.

Lang­ford started stronger and only a brave block from Amer­sham goal­keeper David Turner kept them at bay in the eighth minute.

Town then took con­trol of the game and Tom Parry did well to drive to the by­line be­fore lay­ing off to Shel­don Wash­ing­ton, but his vol­ley came back off the bar.

Amer­sham bagged the opener four min­utes be­fore half time. Wash­ing­ton beat his man on the right and his shot was de­flected into the path of Isaac Asari, who beat Lang­ford keeper Billy Welch from a tight an­gle.

Town’s lead did not last long into the sec­ond half, how­ever, when Asari turned the ball into his own net from a Lang­ford cor­ner.

They pressed for a sec­ond and took the lead in the 70th minute when a long ball from the left was headed back across goal by Dan Harper and volleyed by Joe Zungvzah, giv­ing Turner no chance.

Lang­ford made the game safe in the sec­ond minute of in­jury time when Ben L’Honore chipped his shot over Turner and into the far cor­ner of the net.

Amer­sham host As­ton Clin­ton next Satur­day in the Berks & Bucks Se­nior Tro­phy, kick off 3pm.
