Aylesbury Flooring – 3
FC Beaconsfield – 0
Aylesbury Flooring retained the Berks & Bucks Sunday Intermediate Cup they won twelve months ago with this convincing three goal victory over FC Beaconsfield on Sunday, amid the mist and grey skies that draped over The Meadow George Tomlins men put on a sparkling performance that their opponents had no answer to, taking the lead just past the quarter hour mark through Taylor Collins they looked the more likely to score again but were held at bay until the break, but a devastating spell that saw two goals in four minutes at the start of the second period put the game to bed. Beaconsfield did get the ball in the net twice but both were ruled out, they had keeper Jacob Kucwaj to thank as he made a number of vital blocks to keep the scoreline respectable, whilst his counterpart Liam Smith at the opposite end was comfortable with most of what was thrown at him.
It took almost quarter of an hour for the first effort of note, a twenty yard free kick thumped over the top by Flooring skipper Alex Kedzierski, closely followed by a great move that involved Ty Deacon, Lynton Goss & Dan Parsons ending with their captain again blasting towards the goal but a defender throwing his body in the way to block, the deadlock was finally broken on eighteen minutes when an attack that broke down saw Parsons retrieve inside the area and drive towards the byline, his exquisite chip to the back post took the Beaconsfield custodian out of the game allowing Taylor Collins to head into the empty net.
As much as their opponents then tried to get back into the game, they could not find a way past Smith in the Aylesbury gloves, a free kick cannoned off the wall for a corner, floated in it was comfortably collected by the Aston Clinton shot stopper, another set piece curled in by Aaron Couch was then taken off the heads of everyone attacking it by the fingertips of the keeper, a throw on their left then released Tom Peddle to cut in towards goal but superb defending by Jordan Jenkins saw a sliding tackle to take the ball off his foot and out for a corner, Smith came out to punch away as it swung in, Anton Bradley hooked into the unguarded net but the referee blew for an infringement.
Flooring won a free kick just inside the Beaconsfield half which Mitchell Collins delivered in towards the back post where it was inches away from connecting with the late run of Jenkins, Goss went even closer when he beat Ramel King to the ball on the penalty spot but the touch took him to the right of goal, Kucwaj went out to challenge at the strikers feet where Goss despatched towards the empty net but King had gone behind to cover and cleared off the line. Taylor Collins found space down the wing to line up the next cross for Deacon to launch himself at inside the six-yard box but his volley crashed back off Jarelle Baptiste to safety.
The final action of the half saw Kedzierski win possession in midfield before laying off to Parsons who drove at the blue backline into the box, holding the ball up well he then returned to his Winslow United team mate whose dipping drive took the slightest touch off the head of Bradley to take it away from the far top corner, the resulting corner was glanced across the gaol face and wide of the back post by Jenkins. H/T: 1-0
Just six minutes after the interval Flooring doubled their lead when Parsons collected on the edge of the penalty arc and tucked a clever pass through two defenders for Kedzierski to advance onto and hit with the outside of his right boot to fire inside the neat post just out of the reach of Kucwaj. Just four minutes after the second came the third when a handball inside the area was spotted by the man in the middle, Taylor Collins spot kick saved by the keeper however he was first to the rebound to fire home, with the game seemingly over both sides then made a plethora of substitutions in order to get everyone some game time.
Flooring celebrate with supporters after final whistle
An Aylesbury corner was flicked onto Parsons who fired over the top, at the opposite end Couch tried his luck from the corner of the eighteen yard area trying to bend inside the far top corner but it just wouldn’t come down quick enough, Parsons then did well down the flank skipping a tackle on the way to get into the box where Kucwaj blocked with his feet from close range, the front man was able to climb highest to meet the corner which the keeper seemed to have in his grasp low down to his left however the ball squirmed out of his hands, hit the post then came back into play to eventually be cleared away.
A Beaconsfield attack down their right saw an initial effort from Peddle come back off Smith’s boot but fall nicely for Elliott Pattinson to poke home however a raised flag on the far side denied any celebration, Goss was again denied by the feet of Kucwaj when he drove across the byline to get a shot in from six yards, the biggest cheer of the afternoon was left for the introduction of Liam Marshall for Aylesbury & within a minute he received a pass on the edge of the box with his back to goal, turning on a sixpence he flashed the ball inches wide of the furthest upright, the final action saw Ash Clarke square to Goss but he drilled past the wrong side of the keepers right hand post. F/T: 3-0
