NEWMARKET MOTOR COMPANY COUNTY LEAGUE DIVISION 1B

Fordham 2 Eaton Socon Reserves 1

Fordham defeated Eaton Socon Reserves to start their home fixtures in a new division with a victory.

The hosts made the perfect start with a fine goal, after Jamie Crawley’s superb pass enabled Tom Thatcher to cross for Richard Kent to guide the ball home.

Fordham’s joy was short-lived as the visitors hit back in the 25th minute through Glen Grimes to level the scores.

The decisive goal was scored by Fordham when 16-year-old substitute Reu Palmer’s cross found Kent to net his second of the match.
