Charlie Bateman’s late winner gave leaders Bardwell Youth a 2-1 home victory over Florence Park in the Under 16 C League of the Oxfordshire Invitation Youth League.

Ryan O’Connor smashed home Bardwell’s opener in the 20th minute.

Florence Park equalised in the second half after the hosts failed to clear.

But Bateman reacted first to a loose ball in the box five minutes from time to snatch victory, and put Bardwell four points clear at the top.
