Binfield’s Development u23 side have started 2023 with a bang and two wins in their two Thames Valley League Premier Division Three fixtures to date.
A 3-1 win at home to Hambleden Stags was music to the ears with goals from Sam Applegarth, Connor Gonzalez and Michael Croker, and the team followed that win up with a 10-1 demolition of 10-man Farnham Royal Mavericks who had Zachary Maynard sent off.
Jake Fisher got a hat-trick in that game while there was a brace for Gonzalez and Reegan Basilio Artman, Max Reid and Jack Kittelsen also got on the scoresheet.
Up next for the Moles is a home tie with Richings Park at Kings Academy on the 11th February (2pm).
Allied Counties under 18s will be eager to get back to it
The Allied Counties side have been kicking their heels since their last competitive fixture on the 6th December, and there is still a wait for the young Moles before they are back in action.
14th February will be the ‘big day’ as a return to action sees them head to Godalming Town followed by a quick-fire double at Westfield on the 20th and Ascot United on the 28th February.
First team held by Southall
A point was a good return following a disappointing midweek defeat to Basingstoke Town and it was of course new-signing Conor Lynch who got the goal following a mistake by goalkeeper Berkley Laurencin that Lynch was alert enough to pounce on.
At the other end, Luke Heneghan levelled things up just before half-time, looping a strike over Harvey Rackley-Hayes and Southall held out despite being reduced to 10-men for the final 11 minutes when Kevin Diomande was sent off.
