SSMFL,D1: Winslow net five second half goals to record big win

Winslow score five second-half goals to record a crushing victory over Bedfordshire side.

First Half

A slow and sloppy start from Winslow saw them fall two goals behind to Ampthill Town on Saturday at Bedford Street. The unmarked Ampthill number 5 rose to met a long free-kick to nod past Aaron White in the Winslow goal to put the hosts ahead, before White produced two stunning saves low down to deny Ampthill their second. Ampthill weren’t to be denied however as the Ampthill number 9 met a deep cross at the back post to nod down to the number 5 who emphatically thumped the ball into the back of the net to put the Amps two goals up.

With 20 minutes gone the large away following were fearing the worst as Winslow had seemingly given themselves a mountain to climb, but this is a different Winslow now who don’t know when they are beaten and they demonstrated all these fighting abilities to get themselves back into the game.

The visitors started to impose themselves on the game and Daniel Delderfield was put through on goal following a clever flick from Aaron King but screwed his effort wide. The irrepressible Sean Coles then produced a mazy run and as he bore down on goal he looked to have been taken down by the Ampthill ‘keeper who was the last man however those in the crowd were of the opinion that perhaps Coles’ momentum had led him to trip over the ball as he went past the Town No.1. It was Coles again in the thick of things as he was denied by a last ditch tackle as he bore down on goal with the resulting corner coming to nothing.

Ampthill still offered a threat though with their number 5 toe poking an effort just inches wide of the far post.

However it was the visitors that were still in the ascendancy and deserved to get themselves a foothold in the game; they were duly rewarded when a through ball from Mitchell Collins was raced on to by Aaron King who, from 25 yards, unleashed an unstoppable strike past the Ampthill ‘keeper and it was firmly a case of game on.

Moments later, with Winslow now dominating proceedings, Aaron King fed Coles and his cut back found skipper Simon King; he took a touch, which took the defender out, opening the goal up and then curled a fine effort into the far top corner to drag Winslow back on level terms. Daniel Deldefield then created two chances for Aaron King but the first, following a cut back, produced a great save from the Amps ‘keeper and the second saw a shot rocket into the side netting.


Second Half

At half-time Taylor Collins, who went onto produce a very impressive debut on the left wing, replaced his unwell brother Mitchell Collins. Winslow emerged from the tunnel and the manner in which the first-half had ended there appeared to be only one winner going into the second half.

In a mirror image of the start to the first 45; the visitors were inexplicably caught sleeping once again and after a mere 12 seconds, straight from the kick off, were punished as Ampthill regained the lead when the number 9 met a cross on the stretch to tap the ball into the net past a stranded White.

Aaron King – Winslow United

United had again given themselves a mountain to climb and a lesser side could have caved in, but this team are made of stronger stuff and what was to come can only be described as exquisite, enter stage right Aaron King. Ampthill’s third goal only seemed to re-energise Winslow and they completely blew away a side who had won both of their opening games against good opposition.

Coles was first up to seize the moment unleashing a stunning strike and with the ‘keeper well beaten was unlucky to see his effort come back off the post as Winslow pressed for a quick equaliser.

The equaliser finally came following a mistake by the Ampthill ‘keeper dropping Coles’s cross on to the foot of Aaron King, who took a touch and lashed the ball into the back of the net. The ex-Rushden and Diamonds man was simply unplayable and minutes after equalizing he raced on to a Coles through ball and with the Ampthill back-line appealing in vain for offside danced around the ‘keeper and tapped into the back of the net to give Winslow the lead for the very first time in the game.

It was a lead that Winslow weren’t to relinquish; Aaron King’s fourth and Winslow’s fifth goal came as he turned and shot on the edge of the box sending the ‘keeper the wrong way after a Kevin Mealor free-kick. The hosts heads dropped and the visitors were now in full control with it being simply a case of how many more could they score.

King’s fifth and Winslow’s sixth goal of the day came as he produced a stunning volley on the angle of the box which left the ‘keeper with no chance as he grasped at thin air. United then sealed the victory with a fine passage of play involving a number of passes which culminated with Delderfield’s cut back being met by Coles and he tapped in for his first Winslow goal and Winslow’s seventh of the day.

In the final moments of the game Aaron White produced a stunning save from an Ampthill corner as he dived low down and got a strong hand to the ball and then pounced on it on the goal line.

Unsurprisingly Aaron King was named Man of the Match for his five goal haul, taking his tally already to 8 in 3.


It was a tremendous victory against a very good and confident Ampthill side who were in good form with two wins out of two in the league and were buoyed by the opening of their fantastic new club house. Fantastic to see yet another standing ovation for the players and manager by the strong Winslow following who were clearly delighted with what they had seen.

Up Next

We face our second trip to Harefield in four weeks as we face Harefield United who come fresh off of a tremendous 4-1 victory against St Neots Town Reserves and will prove yet another tough test .

Did You Know?

Cast your minds back to 22 November 2010, this was the last time that Winslow scored 7 goals in a league game as we trounced Brache Sparta 7-0, current first team Captain Simon King also notched in that game.

Final thoughts

A massive thank you to all those that came again yesterday, your support is encouraging this team to play in such a confident manner and this results in displays such as today and as always is welcomed, appreciated and truly valued.

After our visit to Harefield United we have two home games against Codicote in the Division One Cup (Tuesday 29th 7:45) and then Enfield Borough on Saturday 2nd (3:00).

CS&TFL,D1: Robins off to a flyer with back-to-back opening wins

Buckingham Town entertained high flying newcomers Pinchbeck United on Saturday and ended their unbeaten start to the season. Pinchbeck arrived at Manor Fields sitting proudly on top of the United Counties League division one table after a cracking start to their first season at this level, looking to extend their lead at the top but found a hard working Robins team also looking for maximum points.

Buckingham started brightly and used the ball well in the opening exchanges but it was the visitors who created the first chance, a snapshot which Thrussell blocked on the goal line.

Cory Kingston then fired over for Pinchbeck from a tight angle but it was Kingston who put the visitors in front on 17 minutes.

Buckingham failed to clear the ball with any distance after another Pinchbeck attack and Kingston found himself twenty yards out with the ball at his feet from where he curled a superb shot just inside the far post.

Buckingham responded well and after a weaving run into the penalty area Kelvin Osei-Addo stung Ben Martin’s hands in the Pinchbeck goal with a fierce shot. Osei-Addo looked to have been brought down by the goalkeeper for a dead-cert penalty five minutes later as he raced through into the area one-on-one but the referee saw things differently and gave a free kick the other way.

The equaliser arrived ten minutes before the break as Levi Squillance raided down Buckingham’s right and delivered an inch perfect cross that was turned in by Dan Silver from close range.

Daniel Silver

Pinchbeck sought to get their noses in front again before the break and Thrussell had to dive bravely at the feet of a visiting striker as he bore down on goal, the home stopper needing extensive treatment before being able to continue.

The second half was a tight affair with both sides playing some neat football and Pinchbeck had a goal ruled out for offside soon after the restart. Osei-Addo had the chance to give Town the lead but shot wide when well placed and then Thrussell then produced a super save to keep out a downward header that was arrowing in at the far post. Osei-Addo put Buckingham in front with twenty minutes remaining, running on to a precise through ball from Orlando Joao to finish powerfully past Martin with a low shot from 18 yards.

Pinchbeck then made changes and had their best spell of the match as they put Buckingham under pressure and went all out for the equaliser but the Robins defence held firm.

A hard working display from Buckingham against one of the teams that will there or thereabouts come the end of the season and a very good three points as a result.

Buckingham Town visit Irchester United on Tuesday evening, Kick off at 7-45.

CL,D2: Town II edge closer to title with big win

Buckingham Town II are edging closer to the Cherwell League, Division 2 title.

Dom Pritchard’s side went twelve points clear with a comprehensive 146-run win at Bledlow Village on Saturday.

With two games remaining Town II’s are in the box seat to play Division 1 cricket next season for the first time in their history.

After Alex O’Dell (27) and Steve Brunning (55) gave Town II’s a good platform it was Steve Beck (61) and Ben Laycock (51) who took their side on before a few lusty late-order blows by Jason Ell (30 not out from 22 balls) helped post an impressive 271 for 7.

Ben Laycock

Ben Laycock and Nic Bond then blew away the top order to leave Bledlow Village reeling at 5 for 4, from which they never recovered.

Town II worked their way through the visitors batting with a strong bowling display; skipper Pritchard and Ben Stafford removing the rest as they took their last wicket with the score on 125.

Laycock, three for 19, Bond, two for 24 , Pritchard three for 37 and Stafford, two for 32 doing the damage.

Bledlow Village v Buckingham Town

HCPCL,D2: Town do the double over Shipton

By Andrew Holland

Buckingham welcomed Shipton to Bourton Road on Saturday, and after winning the toss asked the visitors to bat first.

Kallan Braid Ball

Lester Smart, playing his first game of the season for the 1st team, struck in his first over as he had Craig Wood caught behind by Jonny Cater. Simon Hole and Charlie Miller put on 23 for the second wicket before Smart and Kallan Braid-Ball ripped the heart out of the Shipton batting as they took 6 wickets for 9 runs in 11 overs to leave the score struggling at 36 for 7. Smart bowled his 10 overs straight through, finishing with impressive figures of 4 wickets for 9 runs with 5 maidens. Harry Davies (13) and Skipper Charlie Brain (25) offered some resistance with a partnership of 41 for the 8th wicket, but when George Humphries bowled Davies the end came quickly. Braid-Ball returned to pick up his 4th wicket, finishing with 4 for 30 from his 10 overs before Humphries (2 for 19 from 8.4 overs) finished the innings off to bowl Shipton out for 81.

Jack Deal

Leigh Tomlinson made a quick start to the Buckingham chase, scoring 24 in an opening stand of 38 before becoming the first of 5 wickets for Anupam Sanklecha to fall in five overs which reduced the hosts to 58 for 5. Jack Deal and Jack Parish came together and saw out Sanklecha’s spell (5 for 31 from 10 overs) before scoring against the other bowlers. The pair put on 26 at close to a run a ball to see Buckingham over the line to complete a double over Shipton, Deal top scoring as he finished 26 not out.
