Manic Show Is Still On The Road

Again, for another week an under strength Manics side, seeming to be the story for this season, went out missing 6 key players this weekend against Ascot Utd. In the previous encounter, Ascot and Manics both nicked a point in a tough, well fought game.

Missing the players Manics called on reserves players to join the ranks, and Gareth Evans would make his debut alongside Mark Gates - which turned out to be the winning formula.

From the kick off it looked like the side had been playing together for years and Manics took the lead early on from a well taken strike from Harry Clowse on the 17th minute.

Manics made it 2-0 by the break, this time Lee Blackman scoring after a great ball from Clowse was delivered across the box.

Ryan Warman did his bit just before the end of the first half, with a goal line clearance to keep the side two goals ahead, but saying that Ascot were creating chances with two free headers off target.

In the second half, Manics began to pressure the ball more, Barry Herman and Gareth Jones both dominating the midfield. It wasn't long before Manics scored more, Herman adding his name to the scorers sheet on the 72nd minute and Clowse scoring his second, cutting inside to score a great individual goal just 5 minutes later.

Captain Glenn Evans went on to score his first and much needed goal too; and what a goal it was. More pressure from the Manics resulted in winning a corner on the 79th minute. Evans hang back and the clearance fell straight to him at 35 yards to belt home like a rocket into the top right corner, surely a firm contender for goal of the season.

Ascot pushed players on, and made changes, and a consolation goal was scored by the club towards the end as a reward for the hard work to end the game 5-1 to the Manics.

Bracknell Manics will be happy to have settled back to normal after last weeks poor show against Priestwood, and with new signings back on the books, things are starting to look up again!

Scorers: Clowse (2) Herman (1) L.Blackman (1) G.Evans (1).
Assists: Jones (1) Baker (1) Clowse (1) Blay (1).

The Manics Man of the Match went to Harry Clowse and the Referee's player of the match went to Mark Gates.
