Report by Paul Lamper
An action packed encounter at Mill Field last night saw eleven goals a number of near misses and two bookings in a feisty reserve league contest.
Town without a game this coming Saturday opted to field a strong side against their opponents and gave opportunities to Steve Willis and Getro Kilapi to stake their credentials for a Town shirt.
The three goal interval lead slightly flattered the visitors as Aveley had had a Leon Diaczuk shot cleared from the goal line and hit the bar with a curled shot from John Bradley prior to Ellis Remy putting Town ahead after 10 minutes. A fine ball from Rudi Hall put Remy in on goal and after a controlling touch the Town striker hit a shot that cannoned in off the inside of the post. Jeff Hammond doubled the advantage with a deflected effort after his initial shot had been blocked by Aveley ‘keeper Joe Wooley, but again it was after some fine play from the home side including a mazy dribble through the Town defence from Diaczuk spoilt by a weak shot at Jason Willis. Remy put Town three goals in front finishing one on one with the ‘keeper five minutes before the interval but immediately pulled up afterwards with a hamstring injury.
Rudi Hall having narrowly failed to score with a quick free kick on the half hour mark made sure of a similar situation with a curled effort 10 minutes into the second period. It opened the floodgates as seven further goals followed in a thirty five minute period where both defences went somewhat missing.
George Tubey pulled a goal back for Aveley with a neat close range shot following a defensive lapse before Diaczuk scored an eye catching bullet of a free kick into the top corner of Willis’ net, 2-4 and the game was very much back on for Aveley.
Any lingering doubts that Town might ultimately surrender a four goal lead were settled after Chris Barry hacked down Hammond allowing Hall to score from the penalty spot with twenty minutes remaining. David Bastian planted a free header wide two minutes later before Ade Onileyan pulled a further goal back for Aveley netting the rebound after Willis had saved the Aveley substitute’s initial shot.
Gaz Dauti skipped his way through the Aveley defence after cutting in from the left touchline to add Town’s sixth with ten minutes left and then laid the ball off to Hammond four minutes later enabling the Town striker to score the seventh goal with a neat near range shot. Hall completed the scoring by tapping home Paul Campbell’s squared pass in front of Wolley.

Town recorded their first victory of the season in the Capital League with a first team XI put out against Ware's youngsters.
The result was never really going to be in doubt as the U18s from Wodson Park found themselves up against a far more experienced Town side. Having said that, Town took a while to settle and Ware had a couple of chances themselves through Craig Packer, whose lob was just off target and Marshall Smith. Eventually Mitch Hahn's through ball found Ellis Remy and he thrashed in the first goal of the game. That was about it for the first half as Town's shooting was either off target or dealt with competently by Josh Knight in the visitors' goal or his defenders.
The second half saw Freddy Dooling and Max Mitchell replace Simon Tickner and Rio Alderton and Ware began to feel the effects of their non-stop running. Ricci Crace was unlucky to see a shot go just wide and then Luke Marshall seemed to let the ball bounce off his shins into the grateful Knight's hands with the goal at his mercy.
Knight did well to deny Crace before Marshall doubled the lead with a fine volley into the top left hand corner and Town began to settle. Remy made it 3-0 when he got past Ware's Jourdel Lord to fire in from an acute angle.
Jeff Hammond came on to replace Town captain Rudi Hall, with Ricci Crace taking over the armband, and it was Hammond who made space for himself to score the fourth from the edge of the six yard box. It took a deflection off Ware captain Jon Hockley but it was heading in anyway. Town's fifth, and Ellis Remy's hat-trick goal, was somewhat fortuitous as Lee Hattersley slid in to try to deny Remy, only to see his clearance rebound off Remy's shin and into the net.
