Binfield vs Hanworth Villa Match Report

Binfield lost for the first time at the Iconic Stadium at the hands of Hanworth VIlla.

They had a great chance to open the scoring on fifteen minutes when a well-worked corner resulted in Ben Stallard finding an unmarked Connor Jeanes at the back post but from yards out he was unable to direct his header on target.

Hanworth Villa took the lead two minutes later when a corner was headed back across goal to Sam Merson whose header hit the left post and rolled into the back of the net. They almost doubled their lead when Merson got the better of Michael Stanic-Stewart and cut inside but Dan Lewis’s excellent block saw the ball go out for a corner.

The Moles had a chance to equaliser when Dontaye Whittaker got in behind the Hanworth defence. He cut back onto his right and fired his shot towards the roof of the net but Terry Buss did well to get a strong hand to it.

Hanworth looked like they would go into the break two ahead when Guy Ansah-Palmer found some space in the box from a corner. He tried to poke the ball home but Harvey Rackley-Hayes did well to both save and hold the attempt with his right hand.

Hanworth Villa did get their second five minutes after the restart when a free kick on the left was once again knocked down and Hanworth captain George Wells’ looping header found the back of the net. The visitors added a third through substitute Bruno Robertson-Tingie with a good header.

The Moles tried to get back into the game through changes in personnel including a change of goalkeeper but they struggled on a tough afternoon at the Iconic Stadium.

The Moles face a trip to Southall in the Isthmian League on Saturday looking to turn their form around.
