Teens help Moles to a win
Burnham 1 Binfield 4

Jack Broome, Joe Gritt, Gary Smith and Jack Thompson-Wheeler dropped out, replaced by debutant Colverd, Liam Whyte, Josh Smith and George Lock.

Injury struck yet again soon after the restart as Liam Whyte was forced off, replaced by Dan Davies.
And things went from bad to worse as Burnham levelled through Gavin Austin before Howell was dismissed for a reckless challenge on 75 minutes.
