Aston Clinton made it five wins from their last six games with a 3-2 win over Mursley United on Saturday, much to the delight of manager Jordan King.

An own goal from James Williams gifted Mursley the advantage against the run of play before United doubled their lead five minutes later.

Aston continued to play well, though, and they pulled one goal back through Williams, who this time headed into the right net when converting Jack Page’s cross.

Aston remained behind at half-time but they came out all guns blazing in the second half with William Harrison tapping home from two yards to equalise before Dylan Walker scored a fine individual goal to seal a dramatic comeback win.

King said afterwards: “The team showed great character today but we must cut out the silly goals we are conceding.

“We can’t keep having to score at least three goals to win a game, but it was a very good performance which saw Adam Beckett and Michael Harper control the game for us in the middle of the park.

“We now look to Tuesday night’s game away to local side Pitstone where we look to pick up another three points and continue to climb the table.”

After that game on Tuesday, Aston face The 61 FC (Luton) this weekend.
