Egham Town 3 Fleet Town 0

Although Fleet started brightly, the Egham keeper Matt Nolan, being forced to block a Graeme Purdy effort in the third minute, but then a couple of set pieces for Egham provided them the openings that led to the moment that changed the game when a ball was blasted goalward, with an unlucky Fleet player only a yard away, the ball struck him and the referee blew for handball and a Penalty to Egham, which their dangerman Brendan Matthew converted after only 7 minutes. A quarter of an hour later Brendan Matthew had the chance to double the lead, won he dispossesed Billy Stratford on the wing and ran deep into the box before shooting, bringing another fine save from Liam Beach to deny him. Switching wings, it was Brendan Matthew that ran through a hole on the right channel to fire a low cross into the box, the ball passed through the area without any of his team mates getting a touch. With only the one goal between the sides, Fleet were still in the game thanks to the heroic defending of Owen Roberts, Jordan Aghatise and Callum Abraham-Barlow, then just before the break it was Callum Abraham-Barlow driving into the box, somehow Egham had the run of the ball and scrambled the ball away, with Graeme Purdy in close attention looking for a touch, other chances came and went with keeper Matt Nolan controlling his area, getting to crosses and balls forward before the Fleet forwards.

The second half started slowly, with a bit of end of season feel about it, as both sides had little to gain or lose on the outcome. Fleet came close to grabbing an equaliser when a super delivery from a corner found Owen Roberts head, his effort passing inches away from the woodwork. After a couple of good runs and crosses from Danilo Cadete which went unconverted, Egham grabbed a chance when it was presented from a corner, when Brendan Matthew, who Fleet had kept quiet for the half until then, suddenly found the space to get his head to the corner and bury it in the net for 2-0 to the hosts. After another Egham attacked was being snuffed out, the ball ran loose and sub Lauric Diakiesse pounced to fire home. Even at 3-0 Egham did not sit back and Liam Beach had to be at his best to make the save from Josh Andrew and keep the score down.
