Teens help Moles to a win

Burn­ham 1 Bin­field 4

The Wokingham Paper - - FOOTBALL -

YOUTH was the way for­ward for Bin­field as three teenagers got them­selves on the score-sheet as the Moles clinched their first away win of the sea­son.

It has been a mixed start to the cam­paign for Roger Her­ridge’s men, but goals from Harry Lee,

Alex Colverd (2) and Car­los San­toro, all 18-years-old, sealed a 4-1 win against Burn­ham, de­spite a sec­ond half Josh How­ell red card.

Roger Her­ridge has been ham­pered by a string of early sea­son in­juries and had to make four changes again for the trip to Slough.

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

The Moles took the lead cour­tesy of a Lee header, tak­ing that ad­van­tage into half-time against a side still seek­ing their first win of the cam­paign.

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.

How­ever, it was the 10 men who grabbed the end of the game by the scruff of the neck as Colverd net­ted twice be­fore sub­sti­tute San­toro sealed all three points in the clos­ing min­utes.

Bin­field are back in league ac­tion on Satur­day, trav­el­ling to face Fair­ford Town (3pm).

BIN­FIELD: Hill, Lock, Lee, Knight (c), J. Smith, Brown, How­ell, Whyte (Davies 55), Lang­ford (San­toro 82), Colverd, Pagliaroli. Subs not used: Vaughan, Thomp­sonWheeler. n BIN­FIELD will face a trip to Fare­ham Town in the sec­ond qual­i­fy­ing round of the

FA Vase.

The Moles were handed a bye for the first stage, but en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion on Septem­ber 23 against the Wes­sex League side.
