Marlow Men’s teams
Marlow Men’s and Ladies’ 1st teams both met teams riding high at the top of their respective leagues with rather differing results. The men met a strong Reading second team but lacked nothing in spirit to hold the visitors to a single goal at half time, After the interval Marlow soon scored through Sam North following a penalty corner.
The game remained even for a while but Reading scored again and holding back in defence and inviting Marlow to attack, paid off. Marlow seemed unable to cope with their swift counter attacks and three more goals followed in the last 15 minutes to make the final score 5-1. Reading are now well away at the top but luckily for Marlow Amersham & Chalfont also lost leaving Marlow only one point behind them in third place.
Other Men’s results: –
- Marlow 2s played away to Oxford 2s and lost 3-2 with their goals coming from Dan Bradley and Dan Field. Despite this loss Marlow remain just ahead of Oxford in 4th place
- Marlow 3s beat Wycombe 3s 2-1
- Marlow 4s lost 4-1 away to Eastcote 4s
- Marlow 5s lost 4-2 to Reading University 5s
- Marlow 6s team beat Harrow 2s 3-2 away
Marlow Ladies’ teams
The Ladies 1s had a tough match at home with runaway league leaders Hampstead and Westminster 2s and achieved probably their best result of the season, considering the opposition, with a goalless draw. Marlow remain 6th in the South league Division 1.
Other Ladies’ results: –
- The 2s drew with Banbury 1s away 1-1
- The 3s beat Thame 1s at home 3-2
- The 4s beat Maidenhead 3s 2-0 at home
- The 5s beat Aylesbury 2s away 2-1
- The 6s beat Oxford 8s 3-2 away and are now 11 points clear at the top of their league
Back to back wins for Marlow F.C over the past week. Firstly, a 2-1 win away at Bedford Sports F.C with both Marlow goals coming from Jordan Brown, a much needed league win for the Blues.
Following that, a tense Berks and Bucks Senior Cup match against Maidenhead United. The cup tie finished with both sides level at 1-1 so it was determined by a penalty shootout, which saw Marlow edge past Maidenhead 3-1 on penalties and into the Quarter Finals, where they will face off against Reading.
You have to go back to November 19th to find United’s last victory and finally they have managed to break their winless run. a 4-0 win against Thame Rangers at home, with goals from Chris Hurst, Zayd Ait-Fahim and Kamal Mcewan, keeps Marlow United in a solid 8th place.
