Tron maintain perfect start in Basingstoke and District Sunday League
TRON maintained their perfect start to their Basingstoke and District League Sunday Division One campaign with a 4-1 victory over visiting Dayers Fine Foods.
This was after they fell behind on 25 minutes after Nick Saunders chipped the goalkeeper.
Dayers still led at half-time but could not maintain their momentum as their depleted starting line up missing nine first-choice players told and Tron scored four times.
Two great football playing sides Basingstoke Saints and Republic of Chineham tried to outplay each other in a game conducted in very sporting manner.
Saints took a first half lead after a Rick Pike’s corner was perfectly side footed home by Alex McKenna.
The match was a very even contest throughout with Saints making it 2-0 as another Pike corner saw Louis Woodman head home at the far post.
Republic of Chineham refused to give up the ghost, though, and they were rewarded by a penalty in the final five minutes, tucked away by Thomas Etteridge, but it they ran out of time to force a share of the points.
In a hard fought match North Warnborough found themselves two goals down in the opening 15 minutes against visiting CI.
Their first goal came early on from a corner as Keith Davies nodded in at the far post and then Oliver Knox lobbed the ’keeper five minutes later.
The home side managed to a goal back after the break through Jack Fisher and for a period created chance after chance, but failed to score as CI continued their 100 per cent start to the campaign.
In a tight game, Sporting Silchester took the lead over Basingstoke Sports and Social as Michael Abobott’s 25-yard free kick flew into the top corner.
After the interval, Silchester went to sleep and Sports and Social quickly took charge with a brace from Jason Graham.
They hung onto their lead until the 70th minute when Ashton Kelly netting from distance. Then five minutes from time, Steven Aldridge won a penalty and Silchester’s Kevin Hill scored the winner.
