Arlesey Town survived a late scare to win 3-2 at Aylesbury in the Southern League Division One Central on Saturday – but it should have been more comfortable.
The Blues welcomed back both Matt Hall and Luke Abraham after long injury lay offs and started strongly.
They opened the scoring with a rare goal from Sean Beesley in the 11th minute.
It was 2-0 as Mason Spence surged forward drawing the defence before a great measured pass found Arel Amu who calmly slotted his second in two games.
In the second half Arlesey kept up the pressure and Christian Tavernier slotted home from a free kick.
Shortly before the end Aylesbury struck twice through Ty Deacon and former Blues player Danny Gordon, but the visitors held out fo r the points.
>> Arlesey Town Reserves manager James Tizard and assistant Gavin Carr have both resigned. Previous assistant boss Duncan Field stepped in to cover on Saturday.
