FOOTBALL: Hole's double proves in vain

First published in Sport

North Leigh fell to a second defeat over the Easter period as they were outgunned at the Evo-Stik Southern League Division 1 South & West promotion-chasers.

Mark Draycott did the damage with a hat-trick as the home raced into a 4-0 lead, before two Stuart Hole goals restored some pride for the Millers.

Hungerford went ahead on 14 minutes when keeper Sam Worrall spilled a long-range shot and Draycott tapped in.

Draycott headed home a Dean Stow cross for 2-0 after 25 minutes, which was the way it stayed until half-time.

Draycott completed his treble from the penalty spot five minutes after the break when Andy Caton brought down Harry Goodyear, and it was Goodyear who made it 4-0 with a far-post tap-in three minutes later.

Hole’s 63rd-minute penalty after Jon Else was bundled over reduced the arrears, and Hole made it 4-2 four minutes from time when he headed in a Brian Bowles free-kick.

North Leigh: Worrall, Hole, Organ, Turk, Westlake, Caton, Walcott (Brooks 83), Alexis (Clark 83), McDonagh (Franklin 80), Bowles, Else.

Attendance: 75.
