Strug­glers in­spired by Blues star

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

FOR­MER Uxbridge stal­wart Craige Tomkins came back to haunt the Reds as their three-game win­ning streak ended in a fiery en­counter with Chal­font St Peter on Satur­day. Tomkins built a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing deadly from the spot at Hon­ey­croft and proved his worth again to set Tony Choules’ side on the road to a 2-0 de­feat in a game which fin­ished 10-a-side fol­low­ing the send­ing off of Saints’ Ron­ayne Marsh-Brown and Danny Juli­enne, for the Reds

Uxbridge fell be­hind when Miles HolmesKnight han­dled in the box in the first half. Tomkins, as usual, made no mis­take.

Saints dou­bled the lead be­fore the break when Kofi Lock­hart-Adams teed up Alan Hed­ley, pic­tured. The touch-pa­per on a more even sec­ond half was lit when Hed­ley lunged for a loose ball on the touch­line and ap­peared to be stamped on by Tayo Coker. The en­su­ing fra­cas took five min­utes to re­solve be­fore Marsh-Brown was dis­missed, while team­mate Hed­ley and Uxbridge’s Mitchell Wise­man were booked – Coker es­caped cen­sure. Uxbridge could not make use of the ex­tra man and evened up the num­bers when Juli­enne saw red for a foul on Hed­ley late on.

Also in South­ern One Cen­tral, North­wood lost 4-2 at home to lowly Kidling­ton, de­spite goals from Myles Stephen­son and Louis Stead.

In Spar­tan South Mid­lands One, Hilling­don Bor­ough thrashed Ar­lesey Re­serves 7-1, and Hare­field United won hand­somely, 3-0 at home to Cod­i­cote, Aaron McLeish’s dou­ble and one for Luke Bald­win do­ing the dam­age.

In the Com­bined Coun­ties Premier, Josh Quadry scored twice as AFC Hayes twice came from be­hind to draw at Bad­shot Lea.
