Herts Senior County League Division One
TAFC Reserve team 2-3 Oxhey

TAFC goals: Charlie Henry-Smith, Miles Blumsom
After staging a comeback on Tuesday Athletic were on the other side of a fightback this afternoon. Oxhey took the lead on the break after a Tring corner and had several more opportunities to extend their lead. Athletic equalised through Joe Cowan with a sliding finish into the bottom left hand corner after a great cross field ball. Charlie Hendry-Smith put Tring into the lead just before half time which may have been somewhat harsh on the visitors but we were not going to argue!

Oxhey continued to look a strong side and were rewarded with two goals in quick succession mid way trough the second half to restore their lead. Tring laid siege to the bottom goal but to no avail. There were goal mouth scrambles and penalty claims but luck was not on our side. Lewis Whicker had a great opportunity to grab a point in injury time but his goal bound effort was glanced onto the post by a defender's head.

Team: George Saunders, Taylor Boniface, Joe Cowan, Max Deschamps, James Doherty, Finlay Eames-Illingworth, Charles Hendry-Smith, Alex Holmes, Adam Priestley, James Smissen, Stuart Stedman

Subs Tom Ainsworth, Miles Blumson, Riely Churchill, Ross Hazel,
