Leamington returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Soham Town Rangers at the New Windmill Ground this afternoon. The match started in a rather low key fashion and Brakes missed some good chances to open the scoring. However, on 31 minutes their opener was attributed to Jamie Towers by the rather ineffective guest announcer from Touch FM, although those around me in the Sheepside Stand thought that it was an own goal.
A push in the back then saw the efficient referee point to the penalty spot just before the break, overruling the vociferous protests of the Soham keeper. PC Mark Bellingham banged the ball to rights in the back of the net to make it 2-0.
A defensive mix up shortly after the break allowed Paul Jones to pull one back for Soham. It could have been 2-2 but Richard Anstiss, standing in for the injured Mozza in the Brakes goal, pulled off a great save. It was good to see our sponsored player do so well.
A scramble in the Soham goal mouth with the ball acting like a pin ball eventually saw Jamie Towers score to make it 3-1. The highly effective Towers receives the Silver Biscuit.
