Potton United  3    Romford  2

Saturday, 18 August 2007

Potton opened their goals and wins account for the season with this surprise success in a morning kick off at The Hollow.

The game could hardly have had a worse start for the Royals as Carl Simm's own goal gifted the Essex side a second minute lead.

Shiblu Miah levelled for Potton four minutes into the second half after dribbling past two defenders, and on the hour defender Steve Blower gave the home side the lead, turning in a Simon Desborough cross from eight yards.

Romford fought back with a 71st minute Des Callan equaliser, but they could find no way back after Amit Patel netted a scrambled third for Potton with eight minutes remaining.
