BINFIELD have made a promising start to the season with two wins without conceding a goal, writes Dave Wright.

The Moles followed up their 1-0 victory at Brimscombe & Thrupp on Saturday by defeating Windsor 2-0 at home on Monday in front of a crowd of 27l, their largest Hellenic League Premier Division attendance for quite a time.

The gate was boosted by a sizeable contingent of old and current Bracknell Town players, officials and supporters on a night when ex-Robins Carl Davies, Kennie Chamberlain and Jamie McClurg were playing and Carl Withers coaching.

Centre-back Davies was not far away from opening the scoring early on, but it was newcomer Asa Povey who looked the biggest threat to Windsor in the opening stages and Sonny Wheeler became much the busier of the two keepers.

The pressure paid off in the 25th minute when Moles took the lead when Danny Horscroft's ground shot from close to the edge of the area rocketed into the bottom right-hand corner.

Wheeler, playing against one of his former clubs, will have been disappointed to concede a goal from that distance, but he did much better to turn away an angled drive from Chamberlain.

Windsor, who had been hammered 5-0 at league newcomers Westfields on Saturday, showed plenty of pace in their approach work, but rarely troubled David Lyons in the home goal.

Binfield were playing with increasing confidence and impressive new signing Joel Valentin was not far away from scoring from 25 yards, while Horscroft saw his effort pushed to safety by Wheeler.

It was Horscroft who was brought down when the hosts were awarded a penalty and Povey, who had scored the 35th-minute winner at Brimscombe, smashed his spot-kick high into the top-right corner to make it 2-0 in the 64th minute.

Roger Herridge's side continued to dominate and ran out the comfortable winners against a Windsor side who are currently missing the services of manager Mick Woodham.

The Moles are in early FA Cup action this Saturday when they host Wessex League side US Portsmouth at Stubbs Lane (3pm).

Binfield chairman Bob Bacon has confirmed the club had "reached the difficult decision" of not running their development side this season following the departure of coaches and players, mainly to Bracknell Town.

But he added: "We hope this is a temporary measure and we will be working on getting that side of the club back on track."
