Aylesbury’s Brian Haule came back to haunt his old club by bagging a brace, before recklessly getting sent off in stoppage time.
Finishing the 2013/14 season with Beaconsfield SYCOB, Haule appeared desperate to show his old club what they were missing and did just that by putting the game to bed midway through the second half. Aylesbury, coached by Brian’s older brother Davis Haule, secured a much needed three points with the 4-1 win at Holloways Park. The victory moves them six clear of Histon, who sit one place below them in the relegation places.
The game got off to a slow start before Beaconsfield SYCOB took the lead through Charlie Losasso following some good interplay between the former, and right winger Jack Lyons. Losasso, previously on the books of Bournemouth and Reading, fired in at the near post taking his season’s tally to 17 in all competitions.
Joseph Hartley, currently playing for the Moles as a scholar from Oxford United, had two excellent opportunities as the first half drew to a close but failed to find the target on both occasions, to player-manager Davis Haule’s dismay.
As raindrops began to fall at the beginning of the second half, Beaconsfield SYCOB were sluggish out of the blocks. Centre back Komal Llewelyn-Reid, was booked in the 49th minute after tugging back the Aylesbury goalkeeper, James Weatherill. The goalkeeper launched the resulting free kick high up the pitch where a poor challenge from Llewelyn-Reid’s partner Guri Demuria left Aston Goss through on goal. A cool finish past stand-in keeper Mohammed Ayoub left the score at 1-1.
Nerves started to creep into The Rams’ game after Ayoub kicked the ball straight to Brian Haule who found himself through on goal and missed the upright by inches. The following goal kick was taken by right back Harry Tucker who did the exact same thing only for Haule to repeat. Ever-present goalkeeper Sam Bunting, formerly of St Johnstone, has now missed the last three games with a broken hand.
Ruddock Yala came on to make his debut for Aylesbury in the 62nd minute which proved to be a decisive change. It was midfielder Lewis Hayden who broke free down the right hand side and a low driven cross saw Brian Haule get across the front post to poke home. Yala’s pure presence in the centre of the park was enough to put SYCOB’s young midfielder’s Jack McKnight and Aaron Minhas off their game.
It was soon 3-1 when Haule grabbed his second of the afternoon after substitute Ty Deacon provided an excellent cross from the right hand side. It was from then on when things began to get feisty. It started with a scuffle between SYCOB’s talented winger Ryan Hill and Aylesbury’s right back Joe Fitzgerald. A scuffle transpired between both sides and the two instigators were subsequently booked.
Playing against his former side, Haule took an unnecessarily lashed out at SYCOB’s Callum Mapley and was shown red for the first time since moving the The Moles from Ware in January. Haule hadn’t even reached the dressing room when Ty Deacon added a fourth in injury time, capping a miserable afternoon for Beaconsfield SYCOB whose promotion hopes are all but over now.
Aylesbury’s first goalscorer Aston Goss was awarded man of the match in front of 90 fans at Holloways Park, and will be looking to help his side extend the game between them and the relegation zone. Beaconsfield, however, slip to tenth and now face playing their remaining games in the knowledge that they can neither be relegated or promoted.
