Ford Sports Daventry  4    Long Buckby  1

Monday, 26 December 2005



A second half Fords revival inched Buckby closer to the drop zone, they now have just three points to spare over second bottom Desborough. At the break the Bucks led with a 34th minute Danny Finlay strike, but the contest turned in the first few minutes of the second half. Mark Hewitt hauled the Motormen on terms two minutes after the restart and three minutes later Dave Bond gave Fords the lead. Player manager Shane Geary got in on the act on the hour and Hewitt rounded off the scoring with his second goal five minutes from time.
