Binfield FC secure a 3rd round place into the FA Vase!

After an intense 90+ minutes from both sides, James McClurg secured the final penalty spot kick to win Binfield FC through to the 3rd round of the FA Vase, beating Newhaven 1-4 on penalties.

With the home side winning an impressive 4-1 scoreline against Ascot United in their last home game before lockdown, Binfield FC knew they was up for a challenge. The first 45 minutes proved a real threat for the away side, with Newhaven scoring in the 13th minute, giving them the lead at half time.

After a strong tactical talk at the 45 minute mark, the Moles came out stronger than ever in the second half. With Captain Sean Moore scoring 2 goals within the last 45, Newhaven pressured back, leaving the final score 2-2 at the Trafalgar Ground.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions within the game, extra time has been scrapped, which sent both the sides straight into penalties.

With Binfield FC being the first on the penalty spot, Ollie Harris steps up and slot’s a lovely ball into the back of the net. Newhaven then stepped up. With Grace looking confident as ever in goal, he make’s a superb save to block Newhaven from slotting into the back of the net, leaving the current score at 0-1 on penalties.

After an intense few minutes and with Binfield FC scoring all penalties from the spot so far, slotted away by Harris, Short and Willment, Newhaven miss again after another superb save from the Binfield Keeper.

With the stadium atmosphere feeling intense and with all fans feeling on edge, it was now Binfield’s turn to take the pen. Walking up to the spot was James McClurg, a squad player and manager for the moles. With the referee blowing his whistle, McClurg slots away and scores, leaving Binfield FC with a secured win through to the 3rd round of the FA Vase.

….A great win for the Moles!

This is a temporary lockdown that we all will be facing as a country, and it’s vital that we all work together too ensure we can beat the virus. Our main intentions as a club are to finish the season on a high and aim to give the boys a good run once the restrictions have been taken out of place.

The club acknowledges that as we enter another lockdown, it will bring a variety of different stresses and strains that we hoped we wouldn’t have to go through again, but as a club, we appreciate and salute those individuals on the front line of this pandemic, who are going more than the extra mile to ensure we are as safe as we can be.
