UCL Premier Division - Holbeach United 3 Oadby Town 2

Nick Conroy’s stoppage-time penalty save made it three wins out of four home games for Holbeach United manager Darren Jarvis.

The Tigers remain on course for a top-four finish after Saturday’s comeback success at Carter’s Park.

Last season’s Division One champions Oadby Town took a fourth-minute lead when debutant Sam Hollis ran through the home rearguard to open the scoring.

Holbeach were level three minutes later with on-loan Boston United youth-team midfielder Corey Newman playing in Charley Sanders to finish from the right-hand side of the penalty box.

Oadby were back in front after 52 minutes when Louis Hamilton finished from the edge of the area.

Holbeach were back on terms just past the hour mark with skipper Jamie Clarke converting Gary King’s through pass with a left-footed shot.

The Tigers won it with a 70th-minute Clarke header from Dan Worthington’s cross.

Conroy preserved the lead in added time with a penalty save from Hamilton.
