PETERSFIELD TOWN sparkled as they romped to a 6-2 win at Southern League Central basement side Aylesbury United.

Six different players got on the scoresheet as the Rams cruised to an emphatic win.

Petersfield took the lead after four minutes, following a series of early corners.

The final one was floated in from the right and Ryan Woodford was unmarked in front of goal when he headed the ball into the net.

The Rams doubled their lead on 31 minutes when Joe Briggs pulled the ball across the edge of the area to Alek Przespolewski, who smashed a low shot into the net.

Aylesbury reduced the deficit with a penalty early in the second half but that only stirred the visitors back into life.

Alex Lowley scored on the hour and eight minutes later Briggs added to the tally with a spectacular effort.

Aylesbury pulled another goal back before Harry Neighbour and Gary Norgate completed the rout.

The third successive league win for the Rams took them up to 16th in the league – their highest position since the end of August.

Acting chairman Graeme Moir believes Petersfield are starting to find their feet at the higher level.

‘Now we are out of the national cup competitions we are able to focus on the league,’ said Moir.

‘We are starting to look more like the side of the last two years when we were capable of churning out results however we played.

‘It is all about getting our winning mentality back.

‘With some new players coming in it has taken a bit of time.

‘We are still not the finished article but are starting to get results.

‘It was a good time to play Aylesbury because they are in a bit of turmoil at the moment.

‘In the second half in particular we were clinical and every time we attacked we looked like scoring.’
