Big win for Overton United, while AFC Aldermaston hold top side
OVERTON turned in a five-star performance as they won 5-2 at Colden Common in the Hampshire Premier League on Tuesday night.
Manager Titch Bloomfield said: “It was a fantastic performance against a very good side and sets us up nicely for the weekend.”
In the first 45 minutes, Craig Harman went close twice for Overton, but by the break they trailed 1-0.
The introduction of Laith Aldoori changed the game as he netted the equaliser after good work from Kieron Fuller and Ollie Bode.
He then turned provider on the hour mark for Myles Englefield to score and the same player scored a spectacular over-head kick to make it 3-1.
Overton soon added a fourth as Aldoori and Bode linked up for Parry to score from 18 yards.
Colden pulled a goal back, but Parry ended a great move involving Henry Salmon, Bode and Lee Cogen as he fired in from 40 yards.
Last weekend, Overton narrowly lost 2-1 at Clanfield as Cogen scored their only goal.
The village side are at Paulsgrove on Saturday and then three days later they travel to QK Southampton.
The early part of the game was a midfield stalemate until a superb move from Aldermaston broke the deadlock.
Some nice one-touch football between Sean Berry, Michael Porter and Kai Parton-Edey, left Parton-Edey on the edge of the area, where he drove in a low cross that was turned in by a visiting defender to deny Chris Allen a tap in. The visitors then levelled with 20 minutes to go.
After the game, Rooney said: “My team showed me they can play really well off the ball. They also showed character and resilience, which was good to see.”
Aldermaston have three games in six days, which began last night at Winchester Castle. On Saturday they are at Bournemouth Sports, before Hedge End Rangers are the visitors on Monday.
