Football: Aveley through to semi-finals of Velocity Trophy

Aveley 2 v 1 Leatherhead

MILLERS made it through to the semi-finals of the Isthmian League’s Velocity Cup with Monday’s night’s (16 January) win at Parkside, sealed by a spectacular late goal from Oli Coker.

Honours were even at the break as the sides went in goalless but the deadlock was broken just a minute after the resumption when the ball pinged around the visitors’ box before falling to Ben Allen who hammered it home.

Leatherhead got back on level terms through Louis Collins on 72 minutes when he drove forward and struck a low angled shot past Jonathan North.

However, it was to be the Millers night and with just two minutes to go midfielder Coker, on loan from Southend United, smashed home a looping shot from well outside the box to delight most of the supporters in a crowd of 105.
