Aston Reserves ease to win...

...over local rivals

Fresh from team photos Aston Res rocked up at Bampton, already kitted out and raring to go. Dave got straight into the lineup.

"Barber in goal, Matt Wood, Sam Rowe and myself centre midfield...."

It soon became apparent that Dave was struggling to say the least from Friday nights excursions and would be relying heavily on Wood's assistance for this game. Eventually he gathered his composure and announced a line up of :

Barber - Goalie
Rowe, Wood, Hambidge - Back 3
Green, Jenkins - Wingbacks
C.Allinson, Chadwick - CM
Beer - AM
Katch, J Allinson - ST

Subs: Reese, Angus, Glaister

The game began and Aston began dictating the game immediately. Long balls upto Katch with J.Allinson, Beer and Chadwick picking up second balls.

A good passage of play down right, saw Chadwick in behind the defence and he played a delightful ball across the 6 yard box for an on-rushing Beer to drill home 0-1.

After taking the lead Aston sat back and Bampton came into the game and created a few chances in quick succession. Notably a long range effort destined for top corner, from the corner of 18 yrd box, which Barber tipped over for corner kick. A relatively poor corner found Danny O'Shea who had no problem losing his man (hangover Hambridge) and headed in from 16yrds 1-1.

Half time

Glaister took lead. Aston struggled with width with formation so a collective decision was made to go to 442. Injured Jenkins making way for Glaister.

The second half started and was clear the change in formation was the right move. As Aston carved out chance after chance.

Hambidge shoot on site policy was starting to become a worry as shots were fired off too early on occasion.

Numerous chances squandered inside the 18 yrd box. And Hambidge made changes to try to change fortune and spruce up attack. Angus for Green and Reece for Katch.

Angus making an instant impact playing neat one-twos and getting in down the left side and Reece finding acres of space down right wing. Beer moved up top partnering J. Allinson.

Finally with approx 15 minutes left aston got their breakthrough. J.Allinson found space in 18 yrd box, faked shot onto his left foot and thrashed it across goal 1-2.

Aston then went on to push for third, when key player C.Allinson was elbowed in face and had to leave field trying carefully not to bloody the new reserve kit.

With last minute to play Aston were awarded a penalty.

Unfortunately Beer stepped up and produced one of the worst penalties ever witnessed in the Witney and distinct.

Aston reserves went on to win to make it 2 from 2 in league, with many positives to be taken from performance. In particular countless chances created and impressive performances from the younger players
