Cogenhoe United 3 Northampton Spencer 0
Monday, 26 December 2005
Spencer's title credentials were given a thorough examination by the reigning champions and the Millers came up short as Cogenhoe emerged victorious. James Thatcher opened the Cooks' account after 13 minutes, converting a corner, and veteran campaigner Darren Collins added a 54th minute second for the champions after springing the Spencer offside trap. The Millers were reduced to ten men when Dan Chilton received a second yellow card. Youngster Steve Diggin continued his fine form in front of goal with a third from 25 yards with thirteen minutes to play.
