Lam­boh strike se­cures points as Amer­sham rely on pep talk

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - MOTORS -

On a rock hard pitch, which was only passed fit to play on af­ter a pro­longed in­spec­tion by the ref­eree, and in tem­per­a­tures of 33 de­grees, it was never go­ing to be an easy first fix­ture.

How­ever, af­ter an in­dif­fer­ent start Amer­sham im­proved sig­nif­i­cantly as the match wore on.

In a quiet first half Brim­down’s Dean Florence broke through on 20 min­utes but dragged his shot wide, while Amer­sham failed to muster a sin­gle shot on goal.

It is not clear what man­ager Mani Asare said to his play­ers at half time, but they came out with re­newed vig- our and pur­pose. Af­ter only four min­utes of the restart Jamie Al­dred chased a long pass, which seemed des­tined for a goal kick, and some­how hacked the ball back across goal for Evans Lam­boh to con­trol and fire past Brims­down goal­keeper Ron­nie Car­roll.

Amer­sham con­tin­ued to play the more at­tack­ing foot­ball, while at the back Lewis Smith and Ke­mai Wright kept a tight rein on the Brims­down for­wards.

The com­bi­na­tion of Al­dred and Lam­boh cre­ated a sec­ond op­por­tu­nity on 70 min­utes when Al­dred beat his marker on the by­line and pulled the ball back, but Lam­boh’s weak shot failed to beat the goal­keeper.

A long free-kick from Ber­tie Squires-Adams on the right then found the head of his brother Josh, but his ef­fort was de­flected just wide.

Although Brims­down en- joyed their fair share of pos­ses­sion they found it dif­fi­cult to cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties against an ob­du­rate Amer­sham de­fence and goal­keeper David Turner re­mained largely un­trou­bled.

With only a cou­ple of min­utes re­main­ing, Al­dred had the chance to guar­an­tee the win when he found him­self un­marked seven yards out from a cor­ner, but he di­verted his header just wide of the far post.
