AFC Totton AFC Totton Pitching In - Partners with Southern Football League


Fresh off the back of a 2-0 home victory against Plymouth Parkway on Tuesday night, AFC Totton continued their promotion push with a convincing 3-0 victory over Beaconsfield Town.

The visitors started the brighter in what was a cagey opening 10 minutes to the match on National Non-League Day. The first chance of the game fell to the visitors but it came to nothing thanks to a Joe Oastler tackle.

The deadlock was broken in the 22nd minute by a powerful downward header from Tony LEE, converting Leon Maloney’s pinpoint right-wing cross.

AFC Totton were then forced to make an early change as Maloney made way for Matty Burrows, whose driving run forced Hunt into an acrobatic save.

On the stroke of half-time, Scott RENDELL doubled the home side’s lead from the penalty spot after Lee was tripped in the box, calmly slotting it into the bottom right corner.

Beaconsfield rallied in the second half, forcing Totton ‘keeper Josh Gould into a number of saves.

The onslaught wasn’t over yet as Gould then had his crossbar to thank after a long-range shot from Daniel Roth sailed over him. However, Totton weathered the storm and put the game beyond doubt in the closing stages.

Ethan TAYLOR’S stunning strike into the bottom right corner made sure of all three points for The Stags.

AFC Totton return to action on Easter Friday, away at out-of-form Poole Town.
