Reading Town 0-5 Slough Town
Slough scorers: Tayo Awoderu, Joseph Blount, Latif Erskine-Moore (2), Jerome Booth
Date: 01-11-2011 | Competition: League
Kick off was delayed by 15 minutes due to problems on the M4 causing players and officials alike to arrive late, but this did not put Slough Town off their stride as they coasted to a comfortable win over the previously unbeaten Reading Town.
Indeed, Town had run Farnborough close in a 4-3 defeat in the FA Youth Cup recently – a Farnborough side which had seen off AFC Wallingford 15-0 and Slough 4-0 at the start of the season.
However, the young Rebels threw the form book out of the window at Scours Lane. Slough were in command from the off and Reading could not get going.
With 10 minutes played, Slough opened the scoring with a fine goal from Latif Erskine-Moore. As the game settled down with Slough missing a few chances, another goal from Erskine-Moore came on 32 minutes.
Reading started to create a few chances at the other end, but hit the foot of the post and also had an effort kicked off the line by Gary Andrews.
In the second half, Slough showed no sign of letting this lead slip, as they had done against Maidenhead a few weeks ago, and picked up where they had left off in the first half, playing their best football of the season.
Three more Slough goals left Reading shell-shocked and bewildered, with Jerome Booth netting once and Tayo Awodern registering his first for the club.
The best goal of the night was saved for last though, a looping volley from 25 yards by Joseph Blount which sailed over the Reading goalkeeper’s head.
A fantastic result for a very hard working Slough Under 18 team.
Slough’s next fixture is a local derby against Maidenhead United at Holloways Park on Thursday 10 November, kick off 19:45.
Please note that the re-arranged League Cup match at home against Harefield United will now take place on Thursday 17 November, also kicking off at 19:45.
