Buckingham Town 3 Northampton Spencer 2
Saturday, 01 September 2012
Spencer's fightback went unrewarded as the Robins claimed a first league success at Manor Fields.
A Nick Bines double after 13 and 27 minutes had Buckingham in half time control. His first goal was a long range effort and his second rounded off a good passing move.
It look plain sailing when Ben Shepherd rounded off a good build up by Joel McCormick and Chris Robson to add a third home goal five minutes into the second period.
Spencer were back in the hunt after 53 minutes as Tomasz Mikutel opened their account from a corner.
A second Millers goal, scored by Ashley Simpson after 89 minutes, came too late to give the visitors any reward from the contest.
