Stewarts & Lloyds Corby 1 Stotfold 3
Saturday, 11 August 2007
New look Stotfold banished memories of a seven goal drubbing at Occupation Road last term, with three of last season's Eagles squad sharing the goals.
A lively start saw Louis Lee give Stotfold the lead after seven minutes after Ryan Nicholl's pass was headed down by Lee Allinson, with Mark Forbes marking his eve of season return to S&L colours with the equaliser five minutes later with a superbly executed free kick from just outside the box.
Callum Donnelly's 23rd minute effort from 20 yards gave the Eagles the lead for a second time and their victory was secured four minutes into the second half, Tawhid Juneja on target with a header from a corner.
S&L: Richard Lavin, Trevor Duncan, Paul Djeneralovic, Mark Wood, Callum Morrison, Mark Forbes, Martin O'Neill (Greig McIlwain), Paul Doherty, Bobby Drain (Richard Forbes), Dom Johnson, Sean Brennan (Derek Simmons).
Stotfold: Brad Gillham, Ryan Nicholl, Paul Donnelly, Colin Shambrook, Tawhid Juneja, Ian Morrison, Callum Donnelly, Louis Lee (Tommy Hull), Joel Mason (Wes Byrne), Lee Allinson, Paul Garrett (Gary Pomfret).
