BOURNE TOWN 2 OADBY TOWN 4: Bourne showed signs of improvement as they pushed unbeaten UCL Division One leaders Oadby all the way on Saturday.

John Currall (24) gave the Wakes a shock lead at the Abbey Lawn, but Livo Dube (39) levelled and an Aaron Jesson own goal (41) put the away side ahead.

Club stalwart Currall (43) pulled the scores level again, but second-half strikes from Jake Duffy (72) and Courtney Meade (85) sealed it for Oadby.

Bourne slip into the bottom two as a result of their ninth defeat on the bounce in all competitions.

Darren Munton’s men host Olney Town on Saturday (7.45pm), before another Abbey Lawn clash with Buckingham Town the following Saturday (3pm).

Wakes: Bellairs, Dunn, Baines, Brockbank, Caress, Ball, Jesson, Moss, Hood, Pick, Currall.
