BURNHAM got their Hellenic League Subsidiary Cup campaign under way with a 5-0 win away at Chinnor on Tuesday.

Aiden Higgs bagged a brace in the victory at Station Road with further goals from Lucas Sinclair, Ash Watson and Ramel Sutherland.

Blues manager Paul Shone told the Observer: “It was a good win despite it being a bit of a comedown the FA Cup when we were playing in front of 700+ people and in a proper ground on Saturday.

“We had to put the FA Cup to bed and get back to what we do at our level, but we didn’t feel sorry or dejected after that match.

“We scored five goals, kept a clean sheet and dominated the match from start to finish, so I’m pleased that we put the game to bed and came away with the win.

“We were the only team in it really and could’ve scored a lot more goals, but it was a good all round and efficient performance.

“We stuck in a few goals and that will stand us in good stead for the next game as well.

“We got some good minutes into young and fringe players that haven’t played as much as they would’ve like to recently.”

He continued: “I prioritise all cups the same and we are in the Subsidiary Cup to win it. You’re judged on what you win and we will be trying to win this competition.

“It’s an opportunity to give other players a chance, but they’ve got to take it, and I’m glad they did in midweek.”

Burnham continue in the Subsidiary Cup with a trip to Division Two East club Yateley United this Saturday (3pm) and Shone has challenged his side to start building momentum.

He said: “Yateley are a division below us but it’s difficult to know what to expect when you play away from home.

“We’ve just got to apply ourselves and will probably be match, if not more, for them if we can perform like we have done this week.

“You build momentum by winning games and we’re looking to move forward and go into our next league match unbeaten.”
