BSCC,1R: Winslow into semi-finals with Olney victory

Winslow United are into the semi-finals of the Buckingham Senior Charity cup after defeating Olney Town 4-1 at Elmfields gate on Tuesday evening.

Winslow Utd v Olney Town

Paul Alleyne’s side took the lead in the opening minute after a long ball down field found Daniel Delderfield, who ran through, despite strong appeals from the visitors for offside, to round Josh McAdoo before slotting home.

Sean Coles made it two as he drilled in a low shot into the net after latching onto a Roni Joe lay-off.

McAdoo made some excellent saves to keep his side in the game as Olney played against a strong wind and heavy showers throughout the first half.

Coles netted his 21st goal of the campaign as Winslow went three goals ahead. Matt Cruse saw his shot from the edge of the box deflected and it fell to Coles, who fired through a number of bodies into the far corner.

Cruse took the home side in four goals ahead at the break. He was found on the left hand side of the area, controlled before producing a shot which McAdoo saved, but the United forwarded carried on to poke into the empty net.

The second half saw Olney come back into the game as their substitute scored direct from a free-kick.

Winslow now face a two-legged semi-final against Daventry Town with the winners set to play either Buckingham Athletic or Leighton Town in the final.

BSCC,1R: Buckingham Athletic 2-0 Old Bradwell United

Buckingham Athletic – 2

Old Bradwell United – 0

Buckingham Athletic secured their place in the semi-finals of the Buckingham Senior Charity Cup with this win over near neighbours Old Bradwell United, with both sides missing a host of chances on a heavy and extremely slippery pitch made even worse when the heavens opened in the second half. The young Athletic side however made the most of the conditions and would have won the game by a bigger margin if not for Bradwell keeper Liam Jahn who made some excellent saves to keep his side in the game at crucial moments.

Buckingham were on the attack early through Ben Acquaye who saw his close range shot brilliantly tipped away by Jahn diving away to his left, and moments later another chance fell to the same player who didn’t connect at all when faced with goal from six yards and the ball simply rolled back to the Bradwell keeper.

Bradwells first chance came on eleven minutes when they were awarded a free kick just outside the box but Charlie Wells curled his effort straight into Athletic keeper Nick Bennion’s waiting gloves. Aaron Pike then broke from defence and his initial shot was parried by Jahn and the defenders follow up shot saw Jahn dive away to his right to turn away for a corner.

On thirty-five minutes Sam Olewale drove at the Old Bradwell defence and got as far as the six-yard box before flashing a shot wide, but with four minutes of the half left the home side finally broke the deadlock. Great work from Olewale some twenty-five yards from goal allowed him to break free and square to the unmarked Acquaye some twelve-yards out who curled into the top corner.

Acquaye opens scoring

A free kick to the hosts in the final minute of the half saw a glancing header from skipper Dan Staley flash across the goal face but wide for a goal kick, and there was still time for Olawale to be slipped in behind the Bradwell defence, as a defender slid in from behind he cleverly cut back to create the space for a shot only to see Jahn make another superb save pushing the ball away using both hands. H/T: 1-0

Olawale was soon trying the Bradwell defence again after the break, a cross from the right saw him collect on the edge of the area and turn his marker before firing straight at Jahn, and at the opposite end Ross Butler tried to curl one into the top corner but Bennion was behind it all the way.

An Athletic corner was punched clear but waiting on the edge of the box Jack Menday collected the loose ball and drove forward before unleashing a fierce drive that Jahn had to push up into the air before collecting at the second attempt.

Olawale attacked down the left and was brought to an abrupt halt, as his team mates urged for a foul and a free kick Acquaye carried on from where his team mate was stopped, going for goal keeper Jahn again thwarted the home side their second goal.

Jahn made several good saves

With eighteen minutes remaining the killer second goal did arrive when a free kick was awarded on the edge of the area, Rory Busby made no mistake powerfully despatching into the bottom corner. With the game now done, Buckingham saw out the remainder with little threat of being dragged back from their two goal lead, and could have extended the scoreline when Olawale had a shot saved by Jahn and the follow up from Acquaye saw the Bradwell keeper again turn away for a corner.

Bradwell had a late half chance when a cross from their left saw a couple of defenders and substitute Alex Feaver scampering after the ball but at full stretch he simply lifted the ball wide. The final action saw Butler put through for the away side and from eighteen yards he blazed high over the top. F/T: 2-0

Attendance: 37
