UHLSPORT UNITED COUNTIES LEAGUE-PREMIER DIVISION SOUTH

 

LUTTERWORTH TOWN 5-4 LONG BUCKBY

It was quite a game at Dunley way and one Tendai Daire will remember for some time to come I should think. Daire had played a massive part in the Swifts rise from Division One with an incredible goals per game ratio and after a spell at Brackley Town he has returned to his roots. He opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 8 minutes and had bagged four before we reached the half-hour mark with further strikes after 12, 17 and 29. Adam Shaw pulled one back for the Bucks on 62, but Daire netted his fifth on a minute later. Buckby were by no means done yet though and Shaw grabbed his second after 67 before Haydn Price made it 5-3 on 80. An exciting finish was ensured when Tom Yorston pulled the Bucks to within one goal two minutes from time but they couldn’t quite create the perfect comeback as the Swifts held on to win 5-4, thanks to that five goal haul from Tendai Daire.

BIGGLESWADE UNITED 0-10 COVENTRY SPHINX

Half-time on Tuesday it had really looked like Biggleswade had turned a corner, but it was a sobering afternoon at Second Meadow as were hit for ten by a rampant Coventry Sphinx. The visitors were ahead on 3 minutes through Harry Holloway and quick goals from James Bryson (9) and a Callum Woodward penalty two minutes later all but finished United off. Callum Stewart netted his first two minutes into the second half and scored again eight minutes later. Josh Wills (75) and Mohammed Billy (77) added insult to injury before Daniel Fraser took it one over the eight nine minutes from the end and Stewart completed his hat-trick a minute from time to bring up the double figures.

BUGBROOKE ST MICHAELS 3-3 G.N.G OADBY TOWN

It was a game of two-halves at the Sett where Oadby came back from three-down at the break to earn a point. All the goals were sandwiched between the 26th minutes and the 66th in this strange game as Bugbrooke looked home and dry thanks to goals from Dan Porter (26), Billy Snaith (37) and Dan Field on the stoke of half-time, but back came the Poachers through Ben Sault (47) and a pair from Andre Williams after 58 & 66.

David Kolodynski shook off a challenge in the middle of the box before playing his shot past the keeper on 40 and he made it 3-1 on 47 when he forced the ball home at the near post from a Dylan Parker cut-back. Corinths made it interesting when Ryan Archer headed home from close range, but the leaders held strong to take the points.

WELLINGBOROUGH TOWN 1-0 COGENHOE UNITED

Former-Cogenhoe centre-half Jack O’Connor’s 49th minute header from a Joe Curtis corner proved to be enough to give Wellingborough Town their second win of the week in this local derby.

COVENTRY UNITED 3-1 RUGBY TOWN

The big game of the day came at the Butts Arena on Monday afternoon where leaders Rugby were beaten for the first time in the league by fellow high-flyers Coventry United. Joe Cairns opened the scoring for the hosts on 14 minutes when he fired home from Kyle Carey’s pass but the overnight leaders were level just three minutes later when a sweet strike from outside the box by Barry Fitzharris flew into the bottom corner. The Red & Greens were back in front three minutes before the break when former Valley man Charlie Faulkner fired a low shot across the keeper from just inside the box on the right and Aram Soleman sealed the win for United with his first goal for the club three minutes from time as he slotted home from a Ben Vallance throughball.

 

EASINGTON SPORTS 0-3 COVENTRY SPHINX

Sphinx moved to the top of the table with a 3-0 win at previously unbeaten Easington in Banbury. It was goalless until the 55th minute when Ryan Harkin broke the deadlock and further goals from Daniel Fraser (68) and Callum Stewart (82) made it a happy trip back up the M40 for the visitors.

 

EYNESBURY ROVERS 0-3 HARBOROUGH TOWN

The Bees showed off their champions potential with a superb 3-0 win at unbeaten Eynesbury, moving up to second as thy maintained their 100% start to their UCL season. Sam Hollis gave them a dream start when his long-range shot flew into the net after just 71 seconds and not wanting to be outdone, Dodzi Agbenu also let fly from a long way out to double the lead on 31 minutes. However Dodzi was later to be robbed of this goal as Hollis claimed a second as he had actually diverted the shot into the net. Nat Ansu had seen a powerful shot well saved, but on the hour he was back on the score-sheet yet again when his flicked header went through the keeper’s legs to make it 3-0.

 

GODMANCHESTER ROVERS 1-2 POTTON UNITED

Aaron McArdle struck at the double as Potton got back to winning ways in Godmanchester, Frankin Nzeh had levelled things up with a header from a corner, but two good finishes from McArdle were enough to take the points back down the A1. The first coming from the edge of the box with a powerful low shot that gave the keeper little chance of keeping it out and his second a calm finish from eight yards as the keeper tried to make himself big as he came off his line.

BIGGLESWADE UNITED 1-3 WELLINGBOROUGH TOWN

Bottom club Biggleswade may have lost again, but they can take a lot of pride in this defeat after letting in ten at the weekend. Jake Newman netted twice for the Doughboys after 9 and 90, whilst Jack O’Connor scored for the second game in a row when he netted in first half stoppage time. Bernat Puig Valls scored for United who also had to play the second half with ten men following a red card to Dolapo Gbadamosi.

 

DESBOROUGH TOWN 4-1 PETERBOROUGH NORTHERN STAR

Ar Tarn secured their first three points of the season with a 4-1 home success over PNS. Ricki Goodale scored for the second game running for Star, but it wasn’t enough to earn a point today as Calum Plowright, Tom Gudyer (2) and Brooklyn Biddle all hit the target for Desborough. Gudyer is also a man on form so it would seem as he made it four goals in three games for the home side.

 

G.N.G OADNY TOWN 0-0 LUTTERWORTH TOWN

These two were involved in fifteen goals in their two games at the weekend so perhaps the gaffers had decided to batten the hatches in this Leicestershire derby as the game ended 0-0 at Wigston Road.

 

ROTHWELL CORINTHIANS 1-0 COGENHOE UNITED

Corinthians picked up their second win of the season as Coegnhoe were beaten by the only goal of the game for the second time in four days.
