EVO-STIK DIVISION ONE CENTRAL
Chalfont St Peter 3
UXBRIDGE manager Tony Choules has no fears about his side’s commitment – despite a lacklustre performance as the Reds were brushed aside by Chalfont St Peter on Saturday, writes Richard Warwick.
Goals from Adam Louth, Daryl Atkins and Scott Fitzgerald did the damage at Mill Meadow but Choules remains unwavering in his belief in his young Reds side.
“There’s nothing for us now in the league, but all the players want to be part of this again next season,” he said.
“I’ve got players who want to do things right until the last kick. That’s a help as you don’t need to motivate people. Motivation’s never been an issue at Uxbridge.”
The Reds were under pressure from the start, but had the ball in the net early on when Nicke Kabamba headed home a cross from the right, only to see it chalked-off by the referee for a handball in the build-up.
To make matters worse, they then conceded a penalty after a clumsy challenge on Chalfont’s Remmel Clarke, and Adam Louth calmly slotted home the opener.
Minutes later they were two down when Daryl Atkins started, and finished, a break after a one-two with Clarke.
And the game was settled 20 minutes from the end when Terrell Lewis smashed a low ball across the Uxbridge goal and Scott Fitzgerald tapped home.
Choules added: “We’ve got that mentality about the club now, and have had for the last few weeks, that we need to build for next season, and that’s what we’re doing.
“I’ve had a number of enquiries from players who want to come to us next season, who are in the right age bracket, so we’ll investigate that once the season’s gone.”
Elsewhere, Hallelujah Baslem and Reon Thomas were on target for Northwood in a 3-2 home defeat to Chertsey Town. The Woods were last night hoping to get back to winning ways at Biggleswade.
AFC Hayes saw their game with North Greenford, who they are due to play again tomorrow night (Thursday), fall victim to the weather on Saturday.
On Monday night they drew 2-2 at play-off chasing Beaconsfield SYCOB.
