More news, no ads


Hungerford Town manager described Saturday’s performance as ‘complete’ after they beat Dulwich Hamlet 3-1 at Bulpit Lane to continue their National League South play-off fight.

The Crusaders opened the scoring through Matt Berry-Hargreaves inside four minutes, but Ronnie Vint equalised two minutes into the second half.

However, Ryan Seager scored his 19th league goal of the season to restore Hungerford’s lead and Jake Evans made sure of the points.

Robinson said: “It was a good performance from the first whistle to the last – I felt we were the better side even when they equalised just after half-time.

“We went up the other end and scored straight away and it’s probably our most complete performance this season.

“When we conceded I felt a little bit of déjà vu, but we took control of the game and we responded well.

“You could see when our second goal went in that it took a bit out of Dulwich and that allowed us to get the third.”

Town had to make a number of changes to their squad due to availability, but Robinson had no issues because of the depth he has at his disposal.

He said: “We are going to go as far as we need to go with the squad and everyone has played their part to date.

“We had Callum Willmoth, James Rusby, Keith Emmerson, Sol Wanjau-Smith and Matt Partridge all out.

“Matt Berry-Hargreaves was brilliant and we have Andre Burley back, while Duane Ofori-Acheampong made his league debut and he was magnificent.

“It shows you we have a strong squad and the competition for places is very hot right now.”

On Saturday, Hungerford visit Slough Town in a Berkshire derby and Robinson is desperate for a bit of consistency.

He said: “It’s a local derby and they’re a good side with two very good managers.

“If we want that consistency, we have to go there and perform like we did on Saturday.

“Prior to our last two away defeats, we had the best record in the league and we want to get back to being hard to beat away from home.”
