AFC ALDERMASTON hit a magnificent seven as they won at KS Gryf in the Maidenhead Cup last Saturday.

Kieran Jennings lined his small squad up with various absentees meaning that Jamie Gannon started centre back and new signing Alex Dumbuya started off at left back.

Aldermaston have been struggling of late with injuries and this showed as they brought a squad of only 12 players which included three players all returning from injury for the game.

KS Gryf showed more intent and passion than the away side expected, but it was Aldermaston who took the lead through Dan Alliston racing through just after 20 minutes slotting home past an onrushing keeper.

The lead was doubled just five minutes later when the full back’s got involved, Alex Dumbuya raced down the left wing to whip a cross to the back post where an unmarked Callum Eaton slotted home.

Things got worse for KS Gryf, as Aldermaston added a third through Kai Parton-Edey after a tidy finish.

The home side did grab a lifeline before the break to make it 3-1 and give themselves a little hope for the second half.

The game became scrappy as the pitch and conditions worsened.

Aldermaston added to their lead through a Craig Masterson finish before a flurry of goals which included KS Gryf pulling the score line back to 4-4.

However, Liam Tackley with a rasping drive was followed by goals from Dan Alliston and Craig Masterson to complete the 7-4 win.

This Saturday, Aldermaston travel to Chalfont Wasps in the Hellenic League Division One East and then entertain Milton United on Tuesday evening.
