UHLSPORT UNITED COUNTIES LEAGUE – PREMIER DIVISION SOUTH
LUTTERWORTH TOWN v COGENHOE UNITED
Biff’s boys head up the M1 to Leicestershire for the second Saturday running, this time turning off a junction earlier to head into Lutterworth and hoping for a better outcome this time around. The 3-1 defeat at G.N.G was rather disappointing, especially after making such a great start that could have seen us three goals to the good before Jessi Obeng’s eighth minute opener. This was our third straight defeat and leaves us with just three teams below us in the table with one of them being tomorrow’s opponents Lutterworth Town. The Swifts are in a poor run of form also, having lost their last five games and the last time they picked up a point was at Compton Park where they held us to a 3-3 draw. The Cooks kicked with the wind in the first half and took the lead through a superb solo goal from Pharrell Anderson after 9 minutes, but Dion Tansey-Potter levelled on 26. The Cooks finished the half strongly though and a double strike from Jessi Obeng after 32 and 42 sent us into the break 3-1 up. Nuno Gomes reduced the arrears nine minutes into the second half and it looked like the Cooks were about to earn what would have been their first home league win of the season, but substitute Jordan Small popped up with an equaliser deep into to stoppage time when he converted from a corner.
Last Saturday the Swifts were hammered 7-0 at home by Newport Pagnell Town, the team who had edged past us 3-1 at Willen Road seven days previous.
NORTHANTS F.A LES UNDERWOOD JUNIOR CUP – SECOND ROUND
COGENHOE UNITED RESERVES v WITTERING PREMIAIR
Ian Adcock’s team play host to Wittering Premiair tomorrow afternoon in the Junior Cup. Our visitors play in the Peterborough League Premier Division, which is a usually a decent standard of football, although they are fourth from bottom at this moment in time. They have made a fairly rapid rise through the league after forming as Wittering Harriers and are in their second season in the top flight as they continue to find their feet at step seven level. They beat Desborough Town Reserves 2-0 at the Waterworks Field last Saturday to earn this tie as goals from Spencer Haskins and Andy Moss saw off our UCL rivals, whilst we had overcome a tricky tie at Spratton the week before.
Last weekend we had what must be our best result at reserve level for some time as we thrashed high-flying Kempston Rovers 6-1 here with Connor Gibbins bagging a first hat-trick and Konnor Dixon marked his debut for the team with a second-half brace. Skipper Lee Felgate our other marksman on the day.
