Goals galore as Division Two sees wins of 13-0 and 11-0
The Michael Anthony sponsored Aylesbury & District league often gives its followers something special, it seems it’s the gift that keeps giving with some huge big scoring results last weekend, writes Marc Thoday.
In the ADL Premier Division after Ayletico folded and their results are expunged Prestwood have gone top after a great 3-2 win over Hale Leys, ending their undefeated run. Prestwood have played more games but two set piece goals from Callum Devine and Adam Bradshaw put them two up before a Hale Leys penalty, Devine then scored again from a corner for 3-1 before a late onslaught. Great Missenden are second after hammering Aylesbury Vikings 5-0, Charlie Brooks with a hat-trick. Leys are now down to third. Wendover are 4th as Tetsworth lost again, Ben Porter, Corbin Rose, Tristan Hardy & Bruno Passaro goals helping them to a 3-4 away win.
In Division One Wingrave’s unblemished record was ended as they fought back to gain a point in a 3-3 draw at Elmhurst, the villagers thankful to their keeper Lee Broomhead as Elmhurst led 2-0 and 3-1 after a goalless first half via Ex Nsunsa, Amjad Mirza and Oli Garcia goals.
