Burton Park Wanderers 3 Whitworths 1
Saturday, 05 January 2008
Burton sprang one of the surprises of the season to inflict this defeat on reigning champions Whitworths.
Recent signing Darren Burt gave Wanderers the lead on the quarter hour and on the stroke of half time they added a crucial second through Mike Houghton.
Kris Line replied for the Flourmen five minutes into the second half but their comeback prospects were dashed five minutes later when another new recruit Pete Callan scored a great third goal for Burton to secure only a second win of the season for the basement outfit.
Burton: Liam Fox, John McLeod, Dean Joy, Mick Titcombe, Andy Lambert, Adam Fitzjohn, Mike Houghton (Marco Giacobbe), Gary Owen, Jamie Poole (Dallie Mandson), Darren Burt, Pete Callan (Luke McIlroy).
Whitworths: Craig Patterson, Oliver Rendall, Kris Line, Jason Burnham, Anthony Sharp, Stuart Goosey, Cavell Jarvis, Matt Freeman (James Wager), James Daldy, Devon Ellwood (Jamie Wright), Paul Smith.
