Northampton Sileby Rangers 6 - 2 Amersham Town

After their convincing performance earlier in the week, winning their first game of the season for the first time in several years, this was a disappointing result for Amersham Town. After leading two one at one stage they went into the break three two down but were well beaten in the second half.

 

Town took the lead on seven minutes in virtually their first attack. After a fine passing move Harry Bennett was left with time and space to shoot home from close range. The home team responded immediately and equalised when Luke Stevens bundled in a free kick.

 

Town took the lead again when Nick Kerley raced up the left wing and sent over a low cross which the home defence failed to clear allowing Conrad Holland to fire into the empty net. The lead again was not to last long when Alfi Taylor fired an angled shot into the net and went ahead when Amersham were unable to clear a cross from the left allowing Merdi Maki an easy tap in.

 

The second half was only ten minutes old when Sileby increased their lead.

Jack Stringer in the Amersham goal could only parry a long shot and Sileby’s James Lea was on hand to knock the ball home. The fifth Sileby goal was an unfortunate affair as Stringer was caught in possession and the ball rebounded into the net. Just before the final whistle Jacob Cox scored Sileby’s sixth.

 

It was a deserved victory for the home side. Amersham Town will no doubt look to get back to winning ways next Saturday when they host Rushden & Higham United.
