Saturday, 06 October 2007
The Cuckoos were unable to repeat their pre season win over the Jockeys bowing out in extra time.
A lively first half saw Chris Lenton give Yaxley an 18th minute lead with a header from a free kick and Ricky Hailstone convert a 40th minute spot kick awarded for a foul on Elio Salerno to leave the Cuckoos in control.
Newmarket hit back in the closing minutes with James Walker cutting the deficit from close range after 85 minutes and Neil Elsom levelling sixty seconds later from a pass from former Cuckoo Jon Olive.
Extra time was needed to provide a winner with James Thurlbourne winning the tie for the Jockeys after 104 minutes.
Yaxley: John Feetham, Sam Kingston, Danny Steward, Matt Parrott, Chris Lenton, Jimmy Dean, Elio Salerno (Ricki Goodale), Lee Blewett (Sam Bate), Ian Edge (Scott Bogusz), Ricky Hailstone, Dominic Henson.
