Wright On Binfield- 22 August

Sean Moore bagged four goals as Binfield crushed Chalfont Wasps 9-0 in their Bluefin Sport Challenge Cup tie last weekend.

dave wright sports reporterThe uhlsport Hellenic League Division 2 South visitors were by no means the toughest of opponents, but even against tougher sides, the striker looks certain to score a lot more goals for the Moles this season. He maybe a little selfish at times when on the ball and wastes chances, but he always shows a tremendous desire to score, possesses a lot of speed and power and can net some spectacular goals, as he did on this occasion. Moore, having rejoined Binfield from Bracknell Town, missed part of pre-season through injury and is not yet fully match sharp.

"It was nice to get my first 90 minutes of the season and the four goals were just a bonus," he commented to Sports Writer Dave Wright. The first of his haul against the Wasps came after just 15 seconds and from then on, the result of this tie was never in any doubt.

Manager Roger Herridge said: "Going into the game, we knew it wasn't going to be one of our toughest tests of the season and some times it can be hard playing against sides like them. But we dominated from start to finish and the longer the game went on the better we got. We certainly passed the ball better in the second half than we had in the first and in the end, we could have scored twice as many goals. Chalfont's man of the match was probably their keeper."

Josh Helmore, who was impressive on the left flank, and Eddie Lee both netted a brace with full-back Matt Deadfield adding the other, his first goal for the Moles, who led 5-0 at half-time.

Long-serving skipper James Knight, who had been relegated to the subs bench for the previous Mondays 2-0 win over Virginia Water and was not picked for the Chalfont game, has decided to leave the club

"James and I had a conversation and he felt it was time for him to move on," said Herridge to Wright. "He has been a great club man and a good captain, and we thank him for what he has done. As a club, we are disappointed as he has been had virtually been an ever-present for the last few seasons. He has been a vital cog in our dressing room and has kept us together on the pitch on many occasions. He felt like he wants a break or a new challenge, I am not sure which. We are disappointed and surprised to see him go and wish him all the best, but the door is always open to him should he want to come back."

Josh Howell has captained the Moles for the last two games, but Herridge and coach Carl Withers will decide about who will take the armband on a regular basis. Binfield extended their unbeaten run with a 2-0 midweek win at Burnham thanks to goals from new midfielders Jamie McClugh and Joel Valentin.
