Binfield add Webb and Maloney to Isthmian League squad

Binfield have made two additions to the clubs Isthmian League squad as managers Carl Withers and Jamie McClurg look to build on a great start to the season.

One player that will be very familiar to Moles fans is Kensley Maloney – a big star of the clubs run to the final of the 2020/21 FA Vase – and former teammate of both Withers and McClurg at Bracknell Town.

Maloney adds legs and no little skill on the ball to the midfield and has already appeared four times this season for the Moles, scoring in the 3-2 win over Sutton Common Rovers at the weekend.

Withers and McClurg have also added experienced midfielder Nathan Webb to the squad.

‘Webby’ has experience at clubs like Beaconsfield Town, Slough Town and Hayes & Yeading United.

FA Trophy draw finally gives Binfield a home tie

Following on from Saturday’s FA Trophy Third Qualifying Round win at Herne Bay in Kent, Binfield have been handed a home tie in the First Round.

Yes, a home tie!

The Moles famously played out the entire 2020/21 FA Vase campaign without playing a home fixture and that run continued this season in the FA Cup and FA Trophy.

Now though, the First Round draw has been published and will see Binfield welcome Southern League Cinderford Town to Hill Farm Lane on Saturday 13th November.

Tickets for the fixture are on sale now on the Moles ticket store as well as tickets for all the November matches (please be aware that we’re waiting on a new date for the Thatcham Town game so that will move).

Isthmian League Velocity Trophy

As well as the Trophy, Binfield have been given a bye in the First Round of the Isthmian League Cup, the Velocity Trophy.

Asa’s road to recovery – Povey preparing for Binfield return

It’s been seven months out for Asa Povey – barring that substitute appearance in the FA Vase Final – but the Binfield striker is nearing a return but ‘will not push himself too quickly’.

Speaking to Dave Wright for Football in Berkshire, Povey revealed all about what has kept him out of football, how he was able to feature in the Final and why it’ll be ‘trial and error’ on his road to full fitness.

In the article which you can read in full here, Povey said: “Scans, tests and X-rays didn’t show anything, but the following day I got a call from the Royal Berks to say a specialist had looked at my X-rays and noticed there was air between my lung and chest wall. He described it as like being a balloon in a bucket, there shouldn’t be any gaps between them, it should be tight.”

He revealed that his consultant had given him the green light to play in the final but said “If something does happen you are going to know about it. It is up to you if you want to take the risk.”

Povey played 20 minutes, coming on as a 70th-minute substitute alongside his lifelong friend Jack Thomson-Wheeler but is now taking a more pragmatic approach to his return after that once in a lifetime opportunity: “I have to be careful and I will know when I am ready. If I mess it up and try to get back too quickly it will affect me work-wise. I can’t afford not to be working after having seven months off. As much as I love football, work must come first. I will do as much as I can when I can. It will be trial and error to see how I feel.”

Up the Moles! Carl Withers writes..

Firstly it would be wrong not to use this opportunity to thank everybody for the support you gave myself, dodds, and all our lads during our FA vase run. The reception we received on the day of the final when we left the village, and the many faces we saw in the Final really made it hit home what this club had achieved over those 6-7 weeks and sadly on the day we just fell short but come away immensely proud.

When both myself and Jamie took over our ambition from the offset was to gain promotion from the Hellenic League and win the FA Vase, now some people laughed at this but we always believed we could build a squad to be successful, and I think not many people can deny that we didn’t achieve our goal, and today that chapter begins.

Like any club promoted, their squads will always need to be strengthened and this is no different for us. Our squad for two seasons has grown but only with the right type of player and this has been no different during pre season. We believe we have brought in a group of lads who all compliment the squad in different ways and we hope you will make them feel welcome and cheer them on each week.

Today we welcome Basingstoke Town, a team who for the last few years found themselves without a home but we’re both delighted they are now back where they belong playing in their town, and will be one of the favourites going into this season.

All that’s left for us to say is we hope you all enjoy the game today and thank you all once again for your continued support ‘Up the Moles’
