Raunds Town 1 Sleaford Town 2
Saturday, 25 August 2007
Premier newcomers Sleaford are up and running after this win at Kiln Park, which left the Shopmates next to bottom without a win to their name.
Jamie Shaw has made the step up to Premier football look easy and he took just four minutes to give Sleaford the lead from a Miles Hunter through ball. An Andy Scott penalty save from Callum Ridgway ensured that the visitors held until six minutes from time when defender David Coales levelled for the Shopmates after Dan Thompson intercepted Scott's weak clearance.
Sleaford were not to be denied that first win though with Jason Sedlan scoring the decider after 86 minutes from Pete Sutton's through pass.
Raunds: Mike Hearn, Joe Rich, Dane Ridgway, David Green, David Coales, Jake Upton, Callum Ridgway, James Willmott (Daniel Thompson), Danny Frid, Jamie Russell, Ashley Bradshaw (Adam Taylor).
Sleaford: Andy Scott, Matt Hodgkin (Pete Brothwell), Darren Statham, Jon Machin, Paul Ward, Oliver Sidney, Carl Sedlan (Matt Lunn), Jason Sedlan, Kris Jones, Jamie Shaw (Pete Sutton), Miles Hunter.
