Northampton ON Chenecks 2 Irchester United 1
Saturday, 08 September 2007
Chenecks snatched a last gasp victory to make a winning start to their home programme.
The Romans went ahead on the quarter hour through player coach Simon Henry who rounded the keeper to slot home, and they kept their noses in front for almost an hour until Nathan Cook levelled for Chenecks from a 72nd minute set piece.
Irchester paid the penalty for missed chances as the home side secured their second win of the season with a last minute decider from Scott Barczewski, again from a set play.
Chenecks: Ben Goodger, Greg Randall (Lee Haines), Steve Allen, Jon Burdett, Grant Stewart, Jason Bradshaw (Scott Barczewski), Harry Barnes, Nanthan Cook, Marc Cross, Justin Ayre, Shane Newman (Danny Webster).
Irchester: James Fowler, Jimmy Marks, Gavin Marks, Simon Henry, Dan Newbold, Jason Vaughan, Dan Turickki (Matt Ablett), Mark Dudley, Marcus Wharton (Sam Duggan), Michael Dowman, Michael Betts (Tyrone Hicks).
