Last Saturday the Saints were made to earn every one of the 3 away points on offer by a very determined and well organised Amersham Town winning 2-0 with a breakthrough that came late into the first half, Massey with a terrific assist with a pin point cross that was met by the impressive Nico Campbell who thundered home his header into the top corner. Amersham came out very strongly at the start of the second half and following a good spell of pressure forced a corner on 55 minutes. The resulting corner kick saw the ball curl inwards and find the top corner giving Donald Manaj no chance making it 1-1. On 80 minutes the impressive Aristotelli made a terrific run into the oppositions box and was found beautifully with a fantastic cross by Ahmed Doukhi. Aristotelli, from an acute angle, fired home an unstoppable half volley.
