Aylesbury FC made it three wins in a row when they completed a quickfire double over Chertsey Town on Tuesday night.

Craig Faulconbridge’s men eased to a 3-1 victory at home, just days after beating the same team 2-1 on their travels.

Faulconbridge said he was pleased with the performance, and praised fans after a mini pitch invasion at the Affinity Investments Stadium.

“It was a good result and a good performance,” Faulconbridge said.

“Winning 3-1 is not too bad and now we have our last game on Saturday (against Thatcham, also at home).

“I also want to say a big thanks to the ‘animals’ that graced Haywood Way last night! The pitch invasion was magic!”

Three quality goals and a display of attacking flair saw FC comfortably home against Chertsey, writes Jools Thomas.

FC fans donned fancy dress for the game, cheering on their team’s every effort and even mobbing FC boss Faulconbridge at the final whistle.

The Moles made all the early running wasting a host of chances before finally getting the breakthrough on 34 minutes. A free-kick was delivered into the box to be met by Davis Haule who powered home a header for 1-0. FC however increased their lead in injury time at the end of the first half when Kevin Ayodele’s cross shot sailed over the keeper’s head and into the net.

Chertsey pulled a goal back early in the second half through Steve Duff. Simpson got his second and FC’s third when he smashed the ball into the roof of the net after a melee.
