Shrivenham 4 Binfield 1

Shrivenham started the New Year in style as they clinched a fifth straight win in the league to jump above visiting Binfield in the table.

The hosts made a fast start after Antonio Gerrish was fouled inside the Binfield box on two minutes and Nathan Blackford provided the finish from the penalty spot.

Moments later Matty Horsell should have made it 2-0 but his near post shot was well saved by the Binfield keeper.

Binfield though levelled on 38 minutes when Danny Horscroft fired home clinically from a long free-kick.

And the visitors thought they had taken the lead right on half-time when Eddie Lee’s looked to have crossed the line.

Lee’s fierce shot crashed against the underside of the bar twice before Shrivenham keeper Mike Alexander collected the ball safely with the officials awarding no goal.

The second half saw Shrivenham come back into the match and they regained the lead on 52 minutes when Gerrish rose high above the Binfield defence to head home a corner.

Seventeen minutes later Gerrish struck once more, again with his head as he nodded home a Sam Ockwell free-kick.

Shrivenham’s fine victory was completed right on full-time when the impressive Tom Ballard fired home emphatically having cut in from the left wing.
