Camberley Town 4-5 Slough Town

Slough scorers: Leon Booth, Govind Chamal, Meridan Reason, Alfie Clark, Latif Erskine-Moore

Date: 26-01-2012 | Competition: League

This was Slough’s first competitive match for almost nine weeks, and Mark Betts’s side arrived at Krooners Park raring to go against a Camberley side buoyant after beating Maidenhead United 2-1 recently.

Slough started brightly with a few early chances, and it took just 12 minutes for the Rebels to open the scoring with a shot into the top of the net from Jerome Booth.

This woke Camberley up and the hosts caused a few scares in the Slough penalty area, and in fact in the space of ten minutes, turned the score around with two quick goals.

With the end of the first half approaching fast, Slough hauled themselves back into the match with Meridian Reason scoring an equaliser in the 43rd minute.

Slough were kicking up the slope and against the wind in the second half, and it took a while for them to settle back into the game.

On 64 minutes, Slough regained the lead with a header from Govind Chahal, followed quickly by a cool shot from substitute Latif Erskine-Moore, taking the score to 4-2 to Slough.

However Camberley, with the aid of some mistakes by Slough goalkeeper James Hawtree, remarkably pulled the score back to 4-4 with two quick-fire goals – however one was controversial with a shot from 30 yards hitting the bar and bouncing down on the line. The assistant referee decided it had crossed the line and the goal was awarded.

Five minutes remained, and this remarkable game looked to have been heading towards a draw, but Slough managed to summon one last effort and pull off the win with their fifth goal of the night, scored by Alfie Clark from a few yards out after an almighty goalmouth scramble.

This result moved Slough up to third in the ACYFL Premier Division. Next up for the young Rebels is a home game against Farnborough on Tuesday 7 February, who are unbeaten this season.

Supporters are also reminded that a fixture change sees Slough hosting Camberley Town instead of Oxford City on Tuesday 14 February.

Team: James Hawtree, Gary Andrews, Tayo Awoderu, Govind Chamal, Samuel Muzinga, Adam Lebby, Joseph Blount, Konnor Saunders, Jerome Booth, Meridian Reason, Neville Rivelong. Subs: Latif Erskine-Moore, Liam, Alfie Clark, Rhys Meyers, Warren Browne
