Thame United tasted victory and defeat in the space of three days as they first thrashed Shrivenham 5-0 on Saturday before succumbing to Binfield 3-1 on Monday night.

Nik Rhodes, Niall Hoskins, James Way, Matt Johnson and Matt Hall got the goals against the relegation battlers before a tough game at Binfield.

Mark West said:“If we had got anything out of Monday at Binfield we would have done very well.”

With United sitting comfortably at seventh in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division West said his focus would now be on blooding youngsters.

He added: “We are not going to win the league and we are not going to get relegated.

“So it’s quite nice to have a look at a few youngsters.”

Thame travel to Thatcham Town Reserves in the Hellenic Supplementary Cup on Tuesday (kick-off 7.45pm).
