Shortwood 0 – 1 Thame United

The same starting line up which excelled against Ardley last week turned in a lacklustre performance against Thame at Meadowbank on Saturday and left John Evans frustrated to say the least: “ We were really poor today and Ash Thomas was the only player who played anywhere near his ability!

Shortwood 1 – 1 Flackwell Heath

Shortwood recovered from a poor opening 25 minutes to take a point off a dangerous Flackwell Heath side. In truth, it could, and should have been all three points as Wood were guilty of over elaboration in front of goal and poor finishing. Man of the match was Jake Parrott, again. His goal gave Wood …
