Beaconsfield Town enjoyed a brilliant week on the road in their league programme winning two out of two to move up to fifth in the table.

Their first win was a narrow 2-1 victory at Arlesey Town.

A pretty poor opening quarter of an hour was ended by a serious looking injury to Rams keeper Jamie Norris who seemed to land awkwardly whilst clearing the ball. Never nice to see a player stretchered off and our best wishes go for a speedy recovery.

Omar Vassell went in goal but wasn’t overly worked as it was 0-0 at the break.

Beaconsfield came out with purpose in the second half and took the lead through Scott Cousins on 55 minutes.

Arlesey equalised through Rafe Goodman with 12 minutes remaining. 

However, just as it looked as though the Rams would have to settle for a point sub Goldy Capella, in time added on, seized on the ball outside the box and sent in a fierce shot that hit the corner of the bar and post and nestled in the net.

On Tuesday evening, the Rams travelled to Bedford Town and they were indebted to skipper Wes Daly for the only goal of the game on 17 minutes when he rifled home for his sixth goal of the campaign.

Ably marshalled by Luke Neville and Michael Peacock, the Rams defence coped well with the Bedford attacks – until added time when, from a Rams corner, Bedford broke away via Brad Woods-Garness but instead of shooting (and probably scoring) he passed to Manu who was in an offside position and the chance was gone.
