Bank Holiday bonanza for Carshalton Athletic

It was smiles all round as Carshalton Athletic registered two wins over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The Robins gained revenge over bogey club Corinthian Casuals by running out 3-2 victors at King George’s Field last Saturday.

Then, back at Colston Avenue on Monday, a stunning volley by skipper Paris Hamilton-Downes proved the difference between Carshalton and struggling Leatherhead.

Carshalton have now won three consecutive league games and now currently sit in the top five of the Isthmian Premier League.

"I'm really proud of the boys, the work ethic and energy levels were high in both matches even though it was really hot," said player/manager Peter Adeniyi.

"The Leatherhead game probably wasn't a great watch but we appreciate the fans turning out in force once again and the result is testament to the players' hard work on display.

"And we are happy to have kept a clean sheet. You need to be effective at both ends of the pitch to be successful and sometimes 1-0 is a really satisfying result."

Carshalton lost three times against Casuals last season and so had a point to prove in Tolworth last weekend.

But they settled their fans’ nerves early as Ernold Haxhiu and Ricky Korboa put Carshalton two-up within seven minutes.

Three penalties were given in the space of 20 minutes – Casuals scored the first to pull a goal back at the stroke of half-time, but Jerry Amoo restored Carshalton’s two goal cushion converting his spot-kick on 48 minutes.

Carshalton keeper Patrick Ohman then saved Nathaniel Pinney’s second penalty just after the hour and that proved pivotal as Casuals only managed to beat him just once more before full-time.

Leatherhead then arrived at Colston Avenue on Monday still seeking a first win of the new season, but a tight game in stifling heat was decided by one moment of brilliance on 68 minutes.

A deep Carshalton corner was returned with interest by Adeniyi and Hamilton-Downes volleyed the ball home from 12 yards for his first goal of the season.

"We are always telling the boys to get crosses and shots in wherever possible," smiled Adeniyi, "and I swung my left boot at it and was glad it paid off."

Next up for Carshalton Athletic is a trip to Bognor Regis Town on Saturday, kick-off 3pm.
