Hellenic Premier Division 

BINFIELD bounced back from their weekend draw by taking all three points against Flackwell Heath after a late winner from Elliot Legg.

The Moles went behind early in the match as the visitors broke the deadlock with just two minutes on the clock.

Binfield had to withstand pressure from Flackwell throughout the first-half as goalkeeper Chirs Grace was called into action.

However, the Moles hit back early in the second half as Josh Harris levelled the score in the 48th minute. And Binfield ensured that they would come away with maximum points as Elliot Legg struck a low drive past the keeper in the 74th minute.
Binfield move up to second having played four matches.

Binfield co-manager Carl Withers said: “These lads will always find a way to win games and this was the case against a resilient, hard working side in Flackwell Heath. Two special goals from Josh Harris and Elliot Legg in front of another fantastic crowd and we will now prepare right for another tough test this Saturday.”
