Binfield under 23s already making the step up

Binfield’s decision to relaunch an under 23 side in the summer is already bearing fruit with four youngsters involved in first-team activities in recent weeks.

Jake Fisher, Max Reid, William Mabukwa and Sam Applegarth have all been involved under new boss Garry Haylock and all four were in the squad for Tuesday night’s 2-0 win at Basingstoke Town in the Velocity Trophy with Reid, Fisher and Makubwa all coming on in the second half.

Reid and Fisher were also unused subs in the 3-1 defeat at South Park last weekend.

The Moles development side remain top of their Thames Valley Premier League division having won three and drawn one of their opening four games this season, but last weekends fixture at home to Finchampstead was postponed.
