Local football round up

Clare Town Res 2 Saffron Dynamos 4

SAFFRON Dynamos made there first visit to Clare Town on Saturday and came away with a good win.

They race into a 4-0 lead at half time. Daniel Rouse headed a brace of goals, on 20 and 28 minutes, skipper Ryan Barry increased the lead with a superb finish from a tight angle and Andy Sell added the fourth with a well-taken lob on 38 minutes.

Clare pulled one back straight from the restart and added a second midway through the half. Dynamos created four or five good chances it put the game beyond reach, but four goals proved enough.

Elmdon 3 Radwinter 10

ELMDON were soundly beaten by Radwinter, but showed a lot of courage and pluck until the final whistle.

Radwinter played some very good football throughout and only conceded when they had moments of lapses in concentration. That said with goals from Ben Nash (3) Jai Goodwin (1) Sam Jeffs (1) Jake Young (2) and Terry Duck (3) Radwinter showed their superiority and finished deserved winners.

Saffron Crocus 3 Saffron Rangers Reserves 0

A COMPREHENSIVE first half performance was enough to win this match for Saffron Crocus, with two goals from Ross Millard and one from Rob O’brien securing a third succesive league victory.

The hosts looked sharp from the off, forcing corners and putting the opponents goal under pressure. It was inevitable that Crocus opened the scoring when Millard pounced on a defensive error and managed to slot the ball pass the approaching goalkeeper.

A second was soon added when Millard dispatched a 25-yard free kick over the visitors wall and into the top right corner of the goal.

O’brien added a third with cool finish following good work from Maycock and Adam Daniels.

Although Crocus managed to keep the tempo high in the second half, they failed to add to the goals tally.

Crocus travel to league leaders Castle Camps Reserves on Saturday.
