UHLSPORT UNITED COUNTIES LEAGUE-PREMIER DIVISION SOUTH
BUGBROOKE ST MICHAELS 1-2 COVENTRY SPHINX
Sphinx netted a last minute winner at the Sett after trailing at the break. Eddie Panter had given the Badgers the lead just before the break with a low drive from the edge of the box and they held the advantage until three minutes from time when Ryan Harkin volleyed home from close range, then the home sides night got even worse when Callum Woodward held his nerve to net the winner from the penalty spot following a handball offence.
COGENHOE UNITED 3-1 EYNESBURY ROVERS
Cogenhoe made it six wins on the spin as beat Eynesbury at Compton Park. A good finish from the centre of the box from Dylan Wilson gave the Cooks the lead on 29 minutes and Archie Culley added a second on 63 when he followed up to net after Wilson had hit the bar. Josh Brown’s neat finish from just inside the box reduced the arrears six minutes later, but Tom Wakley scored for the fifth match running to settle the contest three minutes into stoppage time with a good turn and finish from the edge of the 6-yard box. The defeat was one loss too many for manager Steve Khune and assistant Ash Fuller who tendered their resignations after the game having found it difficult following the loss of a number of southern based players after their enforced switch from the SSML in the summer.
DESBOROUGH TOWN 1-3 HINCKLEY LRFC
Leicester Road are now only one point behind leaders Harborough with two games in hand after making it eleven wins from eleven matches since joining the UCL. Matt Langham put them ahead with less than a minute played and he doubled their advantage on the half-hour mark. Finlay Shorrock pulled Desborough back into the game after the break, but substitute Sam Munton netted on 69 minutes to keep HLR’s 100% record intact.
LUTTERWORTH TOWN 1-0 COVENTRY UNITED
Third place Lutterworth kept the pressure on the top two with a great 1-0 win over Coventry United. Abdul Rahman Sunmonu bundled home the only goal of the game midway through the second half to earn the Swifts three points, but it was United’s third defeat of the season and in the aftermath manager Terry Anderson and his assistant Luke Morton parted company with the club by mutual consent, despite them still occupying sixth spot.
PETERBOROUGH NORTHERN STAR 1-2 POTTON UNITED
There was more heartbreak for PNS as they looked to be heading for a point at home to Potton when they levelled the scores very late on, but Sam Willis struck three minutes into stoppage time to win it for the Royals. Joe Gauge had given Potton the lead two minutes after the break.
WELLINGBOROUGH TOWN 5-1 LONG BUCKBY
The Bucks took a surprise lead on eleven minutes when Max Proudlock netted from close range, but two goals from George Wingrove turned the game around before the break. The first on 15 minutes saw him turn in a cross, then he followed up after Séan McBride’s shot had been saved for his second on 35. Wingrove completed his hat trick on 65 with a calm finish at the far post and he was involved in the fourth goal too after being fouled inside the box with Lloyd Buckby burying the penalty. Buckby got his second after latching on to a clearance and firing home the Doughboy’s fifth of the night. Since so very nearly beating the league leaders on their own patch, Long Buckby have played three times and conceded five goals in all of them.
BERKS & BUCKS F.A SENIOR CUP-1ST ROUND
NEWPORT PAGNELL TOWN 5-0 SHRIVENHAM
It must have been a long trip home for Shrivenham after they were soundly beaten by the Swans at Willen Road in the county cup. Ben Shepherd opened the scoring with a long range effort on 39 and a minute later it was two with Jake Wilkinson on target. David Idiakhoa netted his first senior goal for the Swans on 64 minutes before substitute Daryl Smith took over with a screamer from outside the box on 70 before grabbing his second when he converted a low cross from Idiakhoa seven minutes from time.
