Three wins in a week for resurgent Binfield FC

Binfield put their recent woes behind them with a third victory in the space of a week on Monday evening.

The Moles had won just once in 2019 prior to their Floodlit Cup quarter-final trip to Windsor, but emerged 4-1 victors to start to get their season back on track.

They followed that up with a 2-1 win at Flackwell Heath on Saturday, a first league win since Christmas, and leapt up to 10th in the Hellenic Premier standings with a 2-1 win over Ardley United at Hill Farm Lane last night.

Goalkeeper Sonny Wheeler impressed

Binfield fell behind early on to a Billy Gillett header, but quickly equalised when Josh Howell curled in a fine strike.

And the comeback was complete before the break as Stephen Peacock latched onto a loose ball to net for the second game in succession.

The hosts were dealt a blow when scorer Peacock was forced off through injury as Ardley fought hard for a leveller.

But they found young goalkeeper Sonny Wheeler in good form to keep them at bay as Binfield clung on for victory.

“Slightly fortunate to get all three points,” said boss Roger Herridge.

“But sometimes the harder you work, the luckier you get. Talented young Ardley side caused us problems all night.”

Binfield host Abingdon United on Saturday (3pm).

BINFIELD: Wheeler, Hathaway, Brown, Smith, Thomson-Wheeler (Lee 73), Gavin, Knight (c), Horscroft, Johnson, Howell, Peacock (Santoro 40). Subs not used: Baker, Davies. Attendance: 69.
