B&B Snr Trophy, 2R: Winslow into the last 16 with local derby victory

Winslow United are into the last 16 of the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy.

Buckingham Town v Winslow Utd

The Spartan South Midlands League, Division 1 outfit ran out 4-1 winners in their county tie against Buckingham Town in a typical local derby at Manor Fields.

Simon King put the visitors ahead after he found himself in space on the edge of the area before drilling low past the advancing Ryan Thrussell on 14 minutes.

Six minutes later United’s leading scorer Aaron King found himself in the same position. He calmly sided-footed home into the far corner giving the exposed Thrussell no chance of saving and putting the visitors two-nil ahead.

Good opportunities came at both ends but the game swayed in the two minutes leading up to, and after, half-time.

With the Robins committing bodies forward it was Winslow who saw a counter-attack breakdown as they missed an opportunity to put the game beyond doubt.

Within sixty seconds Kelvin Osei-Addo had pulled a goal back for Town; the striker lifted the ball over Aaron White from an acute angle into the roof of the net.

With the Robins buoyed from getting back into the game, their expected positive emergence for the second period was short-lived as Sean Coles ran onto a diagonal ball, holding off a challenge, before firing home to restore Winslow’s two-goal advantage.

The Robins skipper Sam Bearman then saw red after receiving his second yellow card before Coles wrapped up the victory from close range just twelve minutes from time.
