Hosts hit back to seal win
Published 03/03/14



MICHAEL BUTCHER was the hero as KIDMORE END fought back twice to win at home against 10 men ARBORFIELD in the Premier Division at Gallowstree Common.

Arborfield, who had seen a player dismissed midway through the first half for two bookable offences, struck first scoring direct from a 20-yard free kick.

The hosts equalised early in the second half with Butcher converting from the spot after Kieran Chard was felled.

Despite the numerical advantage Kidmore were unable to capitalise and again found themselves behind, failing to deal with a long ball forward, which was controlled and finished by the Arborfield striker with 15 minutes to play.

This acted as a wake-up call and the home side immediately drew level, as right back Jamie Thomas found himself unmarked to head home a Chard set-piece from eight yards.


With five minutes remaining man-of-the-match Robert Dighton embarked on a 40-yard run and his through ball was received by Butcher, who tapped in the winner from close range at the second time of asking.

Division 1 East basement side HENLEY YMCA UNITED suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat against fellow relegation strugglers WOKINGHAM AND EMMBROOK.

GORING UNITED slipped to a 6-1 Division 1 West defeat away to PURLEY JUBILEE.

The visitors took the lead after three minutes when Jon Wade tapped home from close range after the Purley keeper failed to hold a free kick.

The hosts hit back and scored twice before half-time to take the lead.

Purley, with the wind at their backs in the second half, scored four more goals to complete the rout.

SC UNITED kept their Division 2 West promotion hopes alive with a 5-2 win over BASILDON BARBARIANS at Bishopswood.

The hosts went a goal down after five minutes when a Basildon player headed home a cross unchallenged.

Scott Gyngell equalised soon after, picking his spot from close range. Gyngell then put United front with a similar goal.

Basildon equalised just before half-time when a cross from the left wing sailed into the top corner.

United left winger Arran Finch put his side back in the lead early in the second half from a 25-yard free kick.

Substitute Dan Cousineau headed home a Finch corner to make it 4-2 before a Robbie Jack cross found Aaron Attfield who fired home his side’s fifth of the match.

MAPLEDURHAM went down to a 3-1 defeat away to Division 3 East basement side REAL READING.

The match was dictated by strong winds which Mapledurham failed to capitalise on as they trailed 1-0 at the interval.

The hosts extended their lead in the second half before Mapledurham pulled a goal back.

With the visitors searching for an equaliser Real Reading broke away to net their third goal and secure their first win of the season.
