Flackwell Heath had a superb win at the weekend as they won 3-1 in the Hellenic League Premier Division.

Off the back of a hard earned point against Brackley Town Saints FC in their last game Flackwell Heath headed to high flyers Ascot United on Saturday. The Heathens were looking to continue their good run of results which has seen them lose just once in 15 games prior to the visiting the Racecourse Ground.

The opening exchanges of the game were cagey to say the least. However, with 12 minutes on the clock, Flackwell's Josh Baines sent a corner curling deep into the Ascot six-yard box and with no touch from any player it found itself nestling in the Ascot net.

The Heathens then doubled their lead on 23 minutes after a mix up between Ascot captain Louis Bouwers and ‘keeper Lee Allen saw Sodike Anyadike-Thompson’s shot blocked and resulting rebound found its way to Leius Sinclair's feet who spun and tapped in from three yards.

The second half proved to be a different affair, the Yellaman came out with their hackles up and Flackwell knew they had a game on their hands. After some relentless pressure, on 53 minutes Ascot found their way through. Some good work from Geoff Kibaki found Chris Ellis who subsequently found Harry Laflin. His first attempt at a cross was thwarted but the second attempt found its way to Luqman Kassim who spun and fired past Watkins. Game on.

Ascot’s fightback looked all but over when the ball struck Bouwers’ arm and the referee pointed to the spot. Adam Thomas confidently placed the ball on the spot and struck the ball which Allen pulled off a sublime save to keep Ascot’s hopes alive. However, two minutes later Flackwell substitute Marcos Ushiro-Lumb found himself with a little time and space about 25 yards out and he hit a superb curling effort into the top right hand corner. The celebrations from the Flackwell players and bench told you they knew they were almost there.

The result leaves Flackwell in seventh position but they have four games in hand over Ascot who currently sit third.

Flackwell Heath’s next league game sees them host Wantage Town (3pm) who currently sit second behind league leader Brimscombe & Thrupp with two games in hand.
