Molten Spartan South Midlands Premier


Haringey twice came from behind to condem us to a defeat, in an entertaining game at White Hart Lane on Tuesday night.

The Comrades started well with Josh Chamberlain supplying quality crosses that saw Matt Wardle head wide and then keeper Tamai saved from Connor Calcutt’s header.

Pressing forward again, Chamberlain and Calcutt combined and the latter opened the scoring with an unstoppable shot from 20 yards.

However, Borough levelled within minutes thanks to route one football from Roland Namquita, who outpaced our defence and shot past Ed Farmer.

Berko got back in front with a smashing 25 yard drive by Steve Hawes, that deflected off a defender on its way into the net.

Cedric Lacole made it 2-2 when he spotted Farmer off his line and netted from 20 yards with an exquisite lob. Worse was to follow as Chris Morgan curled a fine free kick into the corner of the net, to put Borough in front before half time.

Berko could have had more goals as Tamai pulled off a flying save to deny Chamberlain and a defender kicked off the goal line from Calcutt.

Unfortunately, Namquita then got the better of Carmichael by fair means or foul and shook off the challenge to make it 4-2 with half an hour remaining.

Berko reshaped their side and kept going well and they were rewarded when Calcutt headed home from a corner to set up a tense finish.

Chamberlain came closest to rescuing a point but dragged his shot across the goal after a good move and the points went, to a perhaps, rather fortunate home side.

Berko: Farmer, Power (Gavin), Rodrigoe, J.Carmichael, Sears, Welling(Frederick), Wardle(Jowle), Hawes, Chamberlain, Calcutt Smith, Sub not used: Boad.

Another away trip on Saturday to Harefield United. Simon Carmichael should be available to add to Mick Vipond’s options. On Tuesday 3rd April Berko are at home to St Margaretsbury in the league.

Berkhamsted’s reserves have their last home league game of the season against Suburban North table topping Chalfont St Peter on Saturday.
