UCL Division 1: Potton United 0, Bourne Town 1

The Wakes stunned promotion-chasing Potton on their home patch in Saturday’s UCL Division 1 clash in Bedfordshire.

Bourne battled throughout and their efforts were rewarded right at the death.

Kieran Blanchard’s goal two minutes into time added on at the end of the match proved decisive to give the visitors an impressive victory.

It was sweet revenge for The Wakes after suffering defeat at the hands of Potton at the Abbey Lawn back in October.

Bourne host Thrapston on Saturday.

* Bourne Town Reserves were beaten at home by impressive league leaders Rushden and Higham United Reserves at the weekend.

The Wakes’ second string were hoping to close the gap on the top four with a shock victory but they slipped to a narrow 2-1 defeat.
