Amersham 0
Crawley Green FC 3

After 3 successive defeats Crawley Green got back to winning ways with a comfortable 3-0 victory against Amersham Town.
Crawley opened brightly and took the lead after 13 minutes when Ryan Smith headed in an excellent cross from Robbie O'Dell.
The lead was doubled 3 minutes later when Robbie O'Dell smashed home a penalty after an Amersham defender had handled in the box.
Crawley dominated the remainder of the game and were denied further goals from a mixture of poor finishing, the woodwork, goal line clearances and fine goal keeping.  Luke Singleton finally made it 3 in the 89 minute when he coolly converted a through ball from Ricky Clarke.
In mid week Crawley were beaten at home 1-0 by Ampthill Town.  In a keenly contested game Ampthill were reduced to 10 men when Tom Barnet was dismissed after 37 minutes following a reckless 2 footed challenged on Tom Freeman.  After the break Ampthill took the game to Crawley and were rewarded with a fortunate goal after 49 minutes.  James Potter gave the ball away and Dave Murphy fired in a shot which Ross Tompkins allowed to slip through his hands.
Crawley battled hard to get back on level terms but Ampthill defended well and always looked dangerous on the break.  In the dying minutes Ampthill were reduced to 9 men when Christian Lester received a second yellow card for kicking the ball away.

Next Wednesday Crawley host Hoddesdon Town and on Saturday travel to table topping Holmer Green.

Crawley Reserves beat Kings Langley 4-3 in midweek with goals from Ryan Smith 2, James Neiderman and Aaron Wilson and followed up with a 2-1 victory over Langford.  A goal from Andrew Spry and an own goal secured the points.

Next Saturday Crawley Reserves travel to table topping London Colney.
