Aldermaston move up with big win
2:00pm Friday 8th March 2013 in Hampshire Sport
AFC ALDERMASTON moved up the Hampshire Premier League table after putting seven past basement boys Hamble on Saturday to continue their impressive unbeaten run.
Kai Parton-Edey scored four, while Steve Neary, Karl Hanks and defender Martin King – making his debut – all got on the scoresheet as Aldermaston secured a 7-2 win.
Manager Terry Rooney said: “We are still unbeaten this year and will look to continue that record for as long as possible. I have set a target of finishing in the top six and if we can achieve that I’ll be a happy man.
“I’m pleased that we’ve scored seven, but I’m not happy with the goals we have conceded. I said at half-time when we were 4-0 up that we just need to keep it tight and not concede any sloppy goals but within a couple of minutes we’ve done exactly that.”
Last Wednesday saw them held to a 1-1 draw by lowly Bournemouth Sports, with a Parton-Edey penalty rescuing a point.
Rooney’s side were in action last night, hosting QK Southampton – and they complete a busy schedule as they host Paulsgrove on Saturday before entertaining Fleetlands next Wednesday.
Overton manager Titch Bloomfield admitted it was two points dropped after watching his side earn a point at high-flying Liss.
Andrew Charsley gave them an early lead from the penalty spot, but fifth-placed Liss hit back with a spot-kick of their own 15 minutes from time to leave a frustrated Bloomfield unable to hide his disappointment.
He said: “I would have taken a point before the game, but having played so well and created so many chances it feels like two points lost. After scoring the penalty we looked in control and they didn’t really test our goalkeeper.
“We should have been three or four up but it just didn’t go in for us. We hit the bar twice, they have cleared one off the line and then we’ve gone and conceded a penalty at the other end.”
Overton will look to return to winning ways hosting struggling Bournemouth Sports on Saturday.
