April results have seen Slough Town Community FC's teams extend their leads in both BOBi divisions.
Our league team stretched their unbeaten run to 22 matches this month with 5 wins and a hard-fought scrappy goalless draw against our nearest rivals Aylesbury United.
Highlights included 4-0 victories over both Banbury and MK Panthers, and our attacking style has been relentless, continuing to gain accolades from opposition and spectators.
We continue to improve this season with a real strength in depth throughout the squad.
Top scorer Dwayne Shaw scored five times, whilst impressive debutant Abdirisak Mohamud netted three times, and is our first deaf player.
Mohammed Farah added two goals, working tirelessly in midfield alongside Tudor Papuc and Dan Greene. Paul Wade and Jeevan Singh were both immense at the back and goalkeeper David Meredith has now kept 22 clean sheets in 24 matches.
Alex Efthimiou ran the BOBi Conference side who generally played well, despite some opposition (Barton Rovers in particular) being very aggressive and trying their best to kick our youngsters off the park, especially targeting our small, dynamic midfielders. Daniel Gealy has played fantastically well and was the main focus of fouls, but kept getting up and was our top scorer with six goals.
A goalless draw was followed by seven straight wins, conceding only once. Alex had this group passing out from the back, with cut backs into the danger area and devising a corner routine that led to three goals.
Other goalscorers were Nathaniel Jeffrey, Owen Gareppo and Shawn Harding, who played for the first time since suffering a serious knee injury. Yannick Var Prinslay did very well to only concede once with great protection from Liam Watson and captain Scott Miles, whose leadership has been instrumental in the improvement of this young side. Young Damien Breslin worked tirelessly in midfield and is gradually adapting to the physicality of the games at this level.
In BOBi Division 2, Slough sit top of the league with 77 points from their 24 games, seven clear of Aylesbury United in second and 12 clear of MK Panthers in third. Meanwhile, in the BOBi Conference League, Slough's side is top with a massive 102 points from 31 games, nine clear of Smiles Giants in second and 11 ahead of Barton Rovers in third.
Tournaments come thick and fast now with BOBi tournaments just two weeks apart at both Northampton Town and Oxford City, and we have qualified for the South East Regional Plate Finals to be held in Kent.
Everyone connected with the Community Team would like to take this opportunity to thank Steve Easterbrook for all his help and support in setting up our organisation.
