The sporting world is full of statistics and records and there are those who spend hours researching the facts and figures of their particular sport of interest. As technology has advanced it has made such research more accessible. In days gone by looking up statistics and records often meant hours spent turning page after page of the books containing the relevant information.

Now a few clicks of a mouse and good old Mr Google can answer most of our questions in the blink of an eye. Recently there has been a lot of coverage given to the quickest Premier League goal - following Christian Erikson’s early strike against Manchester United. Did you know that two of the three quickest goals were scored by players from the same club, I wonder if you know the answer? Here is a clue, it is the same club whose star striker has just notched up his one hundredth Premier League goal. I feel I ought not to mention the team as I might get accused of bias!!

The young Beavers beat the young Greens 5-3 after coming from behind, being two goals down within the first 20 minutes.

They brought it back to 2-2 by half time, before conceding a third midway through the second half.

The Beavers equalised with about 10 minutes left before taking the lead, just before the 90 mins were up.

Deep in added time, they extended the lead with their 5th goal of the night.

Scorers on the night were Dylan Randall and Shadrac Malembe with two each and Langley with the other.

They will face Bedfont Sports under 18's in the final, at a venue to be announced, on March 7th, with a 7-30pm kickoff.

Congratulations to the boys, and we would urge supporters to get behind them and give them their support come the final!

The club are delighted to announce the signing of 19 year old Swindon Town goalkeeper Will Henry on loan until the end of the season.

Will started his career with Bristol City before making the move along the M4 to Swindon in 2015 and signed his first professional contract the following year, and at the moment, has made 10 appearances for the club.

While at the Robins, he's had two loan spells; firstly at Shrivenham of the Hellenic League, then last year at Dunstable Town of the Evo-Stik Southern Premier.

He made headlines on his debut for the Wiltshire club, saving a penalty at Rochdale and is highly thought of, being invited to an England Elite Goalkeepers training camp more than once.

All being well, Will should be available to play in Saturday's match against Whitehawk, and given the Hawks recent form, this will be no picnic!
