Amersham Town 0: Milton Keynes Robins 6.

There is a reason why Milton Keynes Robins sit second in the table having won their last eight matches and it was apparent throughout this game as they outclassed a young Amersham team.

Both Alex Clarke in the Amersham goal and his opposite number, Owusu Kyeremateng, had pulled off fine saves before Amersham’s Joe Mistretta drove a strong shot just past the post. Robins, however, were always dangerous with their skilful midfielders cutting balls behind the defence for the onrushing forwards. The first goal on twenty five minutes, was the result of a clever pass inside the defender for a cross which Amersham cleared only to the edge of the area where a strong shot from a Robins player was deflected by Clarke but tricked into the net off a post,

The second goal was the result of a Robins free kick from the right which bounced around in the area until George Shrieves nudged the ball forward and into the net.

If Amersham felt that they might be able to force their way back into the game in the second half they were soon disabused. From a throw-in on the right on sixty five minutes man of the match Mason Spence crossed perfectly for Vincent Shrieves to slot home.

It was now all Milton Keynes Robins and their fourth arrived from a well executed break away goal five minutes later. Kyeremateng saved well from a Mike Hagan free kick and the ball was quickly transferred through the Robins midfield to Spence who carried it forward and slipped it past the advancing Clarke.

The penultimate goal on seventy minutes was a fine strike from twenty five yards by Liam Smyth which gave Clarke no chance, The sixth arrived eight minutes later when Town gave the ball away in defence allowing the lurking Robins forward to knock it home.

Amersham Town: Clarke, Spence, Mistretta, Hagan, Symons, Aldridge, Doumbia, Ankrah, Thomas, Johnson, Wallace. Subs: Thomas, Andrews, Madeinlo, Al Murtada, Wilson.
