TAFC Reserve team 3-1 Buntingford Town

TAFC goals: Frankie Hercules (2), Matt Ellis
Two goals from Frankie Hercules and another by Matt Ellis gave the reserves an excellent result against 4th placed Buntingford Town. On a sunny but windy afternoon both sides have some half chances with Athletic's George aSaunders called into action a couple of time before Tring took the lead. A long ball beat the Buntingford defence and Frankie Hercules touched the ball past the onrushing keeper before rolling it into the empty net.

Just before the break Tring doubled the lead. Matt Ellis on the right saw the keeper off his line and floated the ball in off the bar .... or was it a cross that caught in the wind?

In the second half it was Hercules who made the points safe. Joe Naylor who had been dangerous on the left for most of the afternoon played a ball in and Frankie took a touch to control before he lobbed the Buntingford keeper.

The visitors pulled a goal back with a header from a corner but it proved only to be a consolation. For the remaining 15 minutes our youngsters worked hard, chased battled and defended stoutly as well as creating further opportunities on the break.

A thoroughly deserved three points.
