ASCOT United completed a disappointing season with two away defeats – going down 1-0 at Lydney and 2-0 at Oxford City Nomads 48 hours later.

The only goal on Saturday came from Pete Macklin shortly before half-time, but Yellamen manager, Neil Richards, felt his side did enough to earn a point from their longest Hellenic League trip of the season.

There was again nothing at stake in Monday’s encounter with Ascot and Oxford guaranteed to finish 15th and 16th respectively in the final placings.

On a dust-bowl of a playing surface, United had early chances before conceding goals to Dean Gallacher on 25 minutes and Billy Gillett in the 36nd minute.

Nomads also struck the woodwork three times during the game.

An injury to Luke Wilson forced Ascot into making a half-time substitution, with keeper Matt Hill being moved into an outfield position and Tim Amoui taking over between the posts.

United came more into the game with James Goodey and Josh Dillon both squandering chances to get their side back in the game, while Ian Brooks sent a header straight at keeper Jack Wells.

Harvey Gilbert went from hero to villain for Ascot United Under 16 Royals as they beat Sandhurst Town Reds 4-2.

He bagged a hat-trick, but was then sent off, with Dylan Reilly getting the other goal for United.
