- First Team News:
Our first team were beaten by higher division Biggleswade FC in the Emirates FA Cup yesterday losing 3-0. Despite starting the match very brightly, the match changed direction after the harsh sending off of our defender Ben Jackson midway through the first half. Although playing with ten men the Bees battled away but couldn’t keep the score down and we wish Biggleswade all the best in the next round. Manager Mitch Austin was rightly proud of the players despite the result – and is looking forward to getting straight back into action on Tuesday night:
Next Game: Tuesday 24th August, Harborough Town vs Coventry United, Home at the BeeHive, kick off 7:45pm
- Reserves News:
The reserve team kept up their fine start to the season with another win, this time away at local rivals Rothwell Corinthians, with goals by Will Arnold, Jack Clipston and Alex Morris. After two successive 6-2 wins, Tony Sansome’s team couldn’t quite hit those heights, but a 3-1 away win still has a certain symmetry to it, just 50% less goals scored but 50% less goals conceded! Reserves are next in action on 31st August.
