Bourne give themselves too much to do at leaders Oakham
Bourne's hopes of a historic league title were dented after a narrow loss at table toppers Oakham.
On a poignant afternoon when both clubs agreed for their game to be recognised as a memorial for ex-Bourne and Oakham player Savanaca "Koro" Kokoibulileka, who sadly passed away in 2016, the home side were keen to avenge their loss at Milking Nook Drove in November.
In atrocious conditions and playing against a considerable wind at The Showground, Bourne made a decent start and kept Oakham firmly inside their own half for the opening ten minutes.
