HELLENIC LEAGUE: Fairford stun Binfield in Floodlit Cup
10:40pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in Sport
JACK Allan hit the only goal of the game to send Fairford Town into the third round of the Floodlit Cup.
Allan's first-half strike was enough to see off Premier Division Binfield at Cinder Lane.
Both sides started brightly but it was Allan who went closest to scoring when he fired over on nine minutes.
On 21 minutes Allan broke the deadlock for the Division One West outfit when he beat Binfield goalkeeper Matt Watson with a great strike from the edge of the area.
Alex Rudd, Dan Bailey and Callum Parsons all went close to extending Fairford's lead before the break.
Fairford were almost made to pay for their missed chances when Jemel Johnson somehow headed over from just six yards out.
Nathan Gambling then missed another chance for Fairford to wrap up victory on 71 minutes when he dragged his shot across the face of the goal.
Binfield pressed hard in the closing stages but Fairford keeper Ben Mitchell was on hand to deny Callum Whitty a late equaliser.
In the Berks and Bucks Senior Trophy Shrivenham booked their place in the second round after a 3-0 away win at Holyport.
