Slough remain unbeaten in the Suburban League Shield as they beat Farnham Town 5-2 on Tuesday evening at Arbour Park, writes Adam Novysedlák.

Both teams started the game with a defensive error in their back lines. A Slough throw-in was intercepted by a Farnham striker, whose effort went wide. At the other end, the away goalkeeper tried to clear the ball, however it hit Junayd Shawwal in the back, but not with enough power to cross the goal-line.

Slough opened the scoring in the 24th minute of the game. Eitel Goueth came to the box, sent the ball through it and found Kyle Brooks at the far post who delivered the ball into the net. 1-0

Six minutes later it was already a two-goal advantage for the home side. Lewis Pegg stepped in from the back line, played a great through ball right at Junayd Shawwal’s feet and the Rebels forward hit the bottom corner. 2-0

Slough completed brilliant 15 minutes of the play with their third goal. Barsa Mir tried to find one of his teammates in the box as he hit a dangerous powerful cross that was redirected into the goal by Sam Winsbury. 3-0

Mir played another dangerous ball in which was taken down by Harry Williams who passed to Shawwal, whose shot hit the crossbar.

After an hour of play, the away team scored their first goal and reduced the gap. An initial effort by Farnham’s winger was blocked by the Slough defence but the following one was too much for George Rose to keep it out of his goal. 3-1

Slough brought on three fresh players from the bench that earned them their fourth goal, ten minutes later. Johnivy Williams got in a shot at the keeper who kept it away but only for Ada Okorogheye who tapped it in. 4-1

The away team fought back and drew another goal to make it two-goal difference once again. A wide free kick fell behind the Slough defence and Farnham’s striker struck the ball in. 4-2

The goal that put the game into the bed was the Rebels’ fifth scored in the 85th minute. Alfie Anderson’s corner was met by Ben Mulley who volleyed it home. 5-2

Slough remain at the top of group D in the Suburban Shield and got themselves in a good mood before their last Suburban League game next Tuesday away at Hartley Wintney.
