Melton St Audrys 3 Old Newton 2
MELTON gained their first victory of the season having come back from a two goal deficit resulting from a bizarre late goal.
The first half was an excellent advert for local football as both sides played some entertaining football, but the visitors were the more positive in front of goal.

Pilborough's long-range shot was tipped round the post only for Bryant to convert the corner with a well taken drive through a crowded box. The home side had a Dunnett header scrambled off the line and on Old Newton's next attack Bryant combined with Zarkos who's header found the back of the net.
Despite going two behind Melton continued to attack and Goldsmith was unlucky when his shot hit the woodwork before Griggs' long-range cross found Lockwood who reduced the deficit with a well-taken header.

With half-time approaching a mistake by the Old Newton keeper when he fumbled Stoke's cross Bixby had the easiest of chances to put the side level.
The second-half was much the same as the first although the home side looked the more likely to break the deadlock, although McKenna made one or two good saves from Richards and Skinner. With the game running out of time a harmless cross from Fryatt was unfortunately mis-kicked by an Old Newton defender which sailed past Smyth who had no opportunity of stopping an own goal giving Melton perhaps a fortunate win.
