Saturday, 01 September 2007
Buckby performed with credit against their higher grade visitors but were unable to hold on to the lead given them by Carl Holmes two minutes before the half time break. Holmes fired home after an exchange of passes with Ben Foster.
Jon Crockett grazed the post early in the second half but Dean Brennan's 62nd minute reply, a low 15 yard shot, snuffed out hopes of a giant killing at Station Road.
Long Buckby: Paul Shepherd, Ryan Nash, Dan Burke, Andreas Kattos, Danny Duggan, Jon Crockett, richard Bunting, Stuart Smeathers, Carl Holmes, Ben Foster (Kevin Slinn), Richard Bailey.
