Amersham Town were eliminated from the League Division Two Cup by the better team as Town’s familiar defensive frailties manifested themselves as they lost 3-1 to Aston Clinton. 

In an entertaining and well contested first half, Amersham took the lead on 20 minutes. A long ball from Leonardo Pedro found Isaac Asare on the right and his low cross to the far post was controlled and then fired home from a tight angle by Sheldon Washington. 

Amersham conceded a penalty just before half-time for a trip in the area but Joe Kittle’s spot kick was well saved by Town keeper, Rob Munn, diving to his right. 

Aston came out with renewed vigour in the second half and drew level in the second minute. Michael Harper dribbled through the defence and, despite being surrounded by four Amersham defenders, found room for a shot past Munn.

The Amersham midfield and defence were now unable to stem the flow and Town went further behind 15 minutes later when Workman scored. Three minutes later Aston Clinton made the game safe when an Amersham defender lazily stuck out a leg to an inswinging corner and deflected the ball into the far corner of the net.
