Moore the mer­rier as Moles pick up points

Bin­field 3 Brack­ley Town Saints 1

The Wokingham Paper - - SPORT -

SEAN MOORE con­tin­ued his fine sea­son in front of goal as Bin­field swept aside Brack­ley to pick up a much-needed league vic­tory.

The Moles have im­pressed in both the FA Cup and FA Vase this sea­son, but went into Mon­day’s clash at Hill Farm Lane with just seven points from their open­ing five Hellenic Premier matches.

How­ever, goals from Moore, James Knight and Ed­die Lee put the hosts 3-0 up at half-time and the win was com­fort­ably se­cured de­spite a sec­ond-half Lewis Bald­win penalty.

Boss Roger Her­ridge made four changes from the week­end FA Cup win over Buck­land with Brack­nell Town dual reg­is­tra­tion duo Jamie McClurg and Dave Han­cock not in­volved while Jack Thom­son-Wheeler and Carlo San­toro also dropped out.

Lewis Leonetti, Will Shaw, Charley Tut­tle and Danny Horscroft all came into the side while Her­ridge called on an­other Brack­nell man, Carl Withers, to name among the sub­sti­tutes.

And the Moles moved in front af­ter just 11 min­utes when skip­per Knight found the net.

That lead was quickly dou­bled with Moore bag­ging his fourth goal in three games.

Min­utes later it was 3-0 as Lee con­tin­ued to fill the void left by in­jured striker Ian Davies by knock­ing in to leave Brack­ley with a moun­tain to climb.

The vis­i­tors did pull a goal back late on when sub­sti­tute Bald­win scored from the penalty spot, but Bin­field picked up all three points.

Her­ridge’s men go to AFC Stone­ham in the FA Vase on Satur­day (3pm). BIN­FIELD: Grace, Shaw, Brown, Smith, Leonetti, Tut­tle, Knight (c), Horscroft (Withers 76), John­son (San­toro 80), Moore, Lee (Downes 70). Sub not used: Gavin. At­ten­dance: 83.
