Newport Pagnell Town 1 Northampton Spencer 1
Saturday, 25 August 2007
Newport preserved their unbeaten league start, but this draw was enough to knock them off the top of the table.
Scott Marshall gave the Millers the lead after 21 minutes, netting at the second attempt after James Howarth saved his first effort. Peter Rowe's 32nd minute reply after a mazy solo run earned the Swans their point.
Rowe had other chances in a second half which saw Newport look the more dangerous while Spencer had the edge in possession.
Newport: James Howarth, Mark Bone, Rob Lock, John Thorpe, Lee Tinsley, Rowland Gavin (Scott Mulkern), Rob Tapp, Richard Armstrong, Vinny Shrieves, Drew Mitten (Rob Macdonald), Peter Rowe (Joe Ramscar).
Spencer: Shaun Markie, Simon McCarthy, Josh Urquhart, Ian Giles, Dan Chilton, Chris Kirby, Scott Marshall, Phil Cassidy, Karl Bates, Matt Collins, Chris Davies (Gaston Guei).
