Amersham Town 6 - 4 Ampthill Town
Updated: Dec 9, 2019
At Spratleys Meadow on Saturday, Amersham Town prevailed over Ampthill Town in an exciting ten-goal match.
In a pulsating opening ten minutes, Amersham failed to convert a 33 second penalty as Thomas Littleboy’s weak penalty was easily saved by Ampthill minder Ross Tompkins but went ahead on 3 minutes when Alec Wallace found the net from just outside the penalty area.
Ampthill drew level on 6 minutes when the Amersham defence failed to cut out a cross from the right and Jake Kissiedu converted at the far post. Amersham regained the lead moments later, following a Littleboy corner Jack Aldridge slotted in. Ampthill equalised on 30 minutes through in-form striker Jamie Cerminara who converted from the edge of the penalty area and just before half-time, went ahead when Amersham failed to deal with a corner effectively.
The second half started like to first with Amersham in the ascendancy and equalising soon after the re-start through Wallace. Cerminara restored Ampthill ‘s advantage following a direct free-kick just outside the penalty area but not to be outdone Josiah Johnson equalised for Amersham with an equally outstanding shot from outside the area. Amersham sealed victory with two goals in as many minutes from Reon Thomas.
Firstly, Wallace, seeking his hat-trick, broke through the Ampthill defence and beat the onrushing Tompkins but his shot hit the post and rebounded to Thomas who passed the ball into the unguarded net. Further good work by Wallace presented Thomas with another tap in to complete the scoring.
Amersham have scored 12 goals in their last two home games so it was a pity that the attendance at this match was only 20.
