YELLAMEN WIN IN EUROPE

#WeAreAscot.

OK, so it’s not Europe really, but it sounds good…

Ascot United flew in and out with Guernsey in style on Saturday, recording a 4-2 win.

The Yellamen were quickly out of the traps after an early start and raced into a 2-0 half-time lead, for which they were good value.

Chris Ellis – enjoying a purple patch in his career – took the credit for an early opener; his long throw-in would otherwise not have stood had it gone straight in – but it didn’t – and it was 1-0 courtesy of the big defender’s third goal in 135 appearances.

Taylor Morgan then went close, but he had a hand in his side’s second as Liam Tack applied the finishing touch with  a fine finish from outside the area.

Returning Yellas’ ‘keeper Mark Scott made a fine save to deny the hosts’ Matt Loaring just before the break, and 2-0 it remained at half time.

Man-of-the-match Tack then knocked any remaining wind out of the hosts’ sails three minutes after the restart with another superb left-footed effort at a blustery Footes Lane, before Harry Tucker’s contender for goal of the season threatened to eclipse all that had gone before just four minutes later; 4-0 and the visitors were cruising.

Substitute Sam Murray scored a brace for the home side – the second of which came in the dying embers – but it was a job well done for Ascot who hit the Green Lions for four for the second time this season having netted the same in the reverse fixture.

Ascot’s travelling contingent comprised barely one percent of a home crowd of over 600, although The Yellas’ faithful were thankful to social media as they actively perused – and ultimately purred from afar – over their side’s win.

Ascot remain thirteenth in the table, a position they are now well-accustomed to, whereas Guernsey remain seventeenth, although it will take a cataclysmic set of results of they are to be drawn into the bottom two despite Binfield’s eye-catching 5-0 win at fellow strugglers Chipstead; The Green Lions still fifteen points clear of the drop.
