Report: Fairford Town 2 Flackwell Heath 6

FLACKWELL Heath scored four second half goals to come from behind to win 6-2 at Fairford Town on Saturday afternoon.

In an entertaining encounter for a number of neutrals in the ground, the display will have frustrated new Fairford boss Jody Bevan as a number of individual errors contributed to the home side’s demise.

Lee Smith finished well after 13 minutes to put the home side in front after a poor clearance from visiting stopper James Tripp.

Dean Allen levelled the game up four minutes later as a defensive slip allowed for a cut-back which was finished well by the striker from close range.

Joel Jacobs put Flackwell in front with 25 minutes on the clock, as his free-kick from the right hand side was whipped inside the near post past the dive of Ben Mitchell.

With the game poised at 2-1 to the visitors, Fairford conceded a third with 52 minutes on the clock. Elliot Derby made it 3-1 before midfielder Liam Tack tapped home a loose ball from close range following a robust challenge on home stopper Mitchell in the air to extend the advantage.

Nile O’Meally-Newell made a big impact off the bench as he scored Flackwell’s final two goals with 85 and 87 minutes on the clock.

Josh Morse netted his second goal of the campaign with a neat lob as the game entered injury-time, but the effort was little more than a consolation for the home side.
