Achilles 1 Stanton 0
DESPITE having to play second best to a good Stanton side for most of the match it was Achilles who took the points in this middle-of-the-table clash.
The winning goal after ten minutes was the highlight of a scrappy game with Coote making a 30-yard run, shaking off the attention of three defenders to beat the keeper with a low shot from inside the box.
The visitors controlled the midfield for most of the half, but all of the attacks fell down on the edge of the Achilles box.
