AFC Kempston Rovers 2 Stewarts & Lloyds Corby 1
Saturday, 29 December 2007
With 14 points still to make up AFC Kempston's Premier Division future hardly looks bright, but after a run of 16 consecutive defeats, they'll be delighted to have picked up their first home win at the expense of mid table Stewarts & Lloyds.
Matt Cheveralls gave the Walnut Boys a 32nd minute lead with a header but two minutes later Bobby Drain equalised for S&L.
The Corby side could find no response though after a 56th minute James Cooper header from a Tom Damon cross restored Kempston's lead. The visitors dominated the closing stages and had two penalty appeals rejected but the Walnut Boys held on to claim their second win of the campaign.
Kempston: Chris Williscroft, Neil Chance, Raoul Limoan, Rob Lindsay, Andrew Budge, Deep Banghard, Tom Damon (Joe Wille), Ashley Yeomans, Darren Farrar, Matt Cheveralls, James Cooper.
S&L: Richard Lavin, Gareth Robb (Trevor Duncan), Greig McIlwain, Mark Forbes, Mark Wood, Pete Sneddon (Dave Trimble), Sean Brennan (Paddy Daniels), Paul Doherty, Bobby Drain, Dominic Johnson, Lee Garvie.
