New boys make impact; BODDY PRINTERS SUNDAY LEAGUE.

LINGFIELD FARM 2, BUCCANEER 4

BUCCANEER opened with some great football and new signing Tom Whaley, and Michael Joseph bossing midfield, kept Lingfield on the defensive.

Whaley put Buccaneer on their way with a good first touch, then fired into the bottom corner from 12 yards.

Buccaneer then spurned a number of chances and paid the price just on half-time when a cross sailed over the keeper's outstretched arms for the equaliser.

A second player making a first appearance for Buccaneer, Carl Hetherington, got onto the scoresheet after Thomas Bell played him in.

Lingfield drew level again with a well-taken free-kick which shocked Buccaneer, who found they had a game on their hands that had to be won.

Michael Joseph put them in front again when he calmly shot past the Lingfield keeper and the result was settled when Whaley headed in a rebound from his own shot.

The victory kept Buccaneer in with a chance to go on and defend the cup they won last season.

Lingfield Farm's goals came from James Myers and Ste Fawcett.

BERWICK HILLS 6, SUPPORTERS 2

BERWICK Hills emerged victorious from a must-win game for both sides.

It looked good for Supporters when Raphael Harrison scored from the spot on 12 minutes.

The lead only lasted 10 minutes when Berwick Hills levelled.

And, like in many games in which Supporters are concerned, the second half saw a collapse and once they went behind it was all over.

Berwick Hills fired in five goals for a 6-1 lead, before Harrison scored his second for Supporters.

GABLES MANDERS 5, ERW 1

ERW gave an improved performance.

They held their own until the interval when the constant pressure of Gables took over.

A long ball over the top caught out ERW and Gables scored to go one up.

ERW drew level when Gareth Phillips netted, only to concede two more before the interval.

ERW kept the score down until an own goal from Andy Craig put Gables four up, then went nap with a late fifth goal.

Alex Brown, Dave Campbell and Richie May (both two) did the damage for Gables.
