Town snatch Ascot win on the line

Match-winner Josh Helmore

 Thatcham Town 2 Ascot Utd 1

A LAST-GASP goal from Josh Helmore took Thatcham back into third place in the Hellenic League’s Premier Division table.

They went ahead when Marcus Mealing headed on a Mark Hughes throw for Gareth Thomas to score at the far post, but Ascot seemed to have salvaged a point 10 minutes from time when Joe Grant scrambled an equalizer.

But in time added on, another Hughes long throw was poked home by Helmore for the winner.

Thatcham are again in action on Tuesday night when they visit Wokingham and Emmbrook.
