Playing the entire game with ten men, United shrugged off last week’s 9-1 loss to Cholsey.

Ben Curtis opened the scoring and a brace from Louis Joyce made the points safe. Steve Park scored the visitors’ consolation.
A late show saw Yellow Eagles come from 3-1 down to win 4-3 against Barton United .
Garry Howkins and two penalties from Aaron Williams, either side of Richard Morgan’s free kick for Eagles, gave Barton a 3-1 lead.
But goals in the final ten minutes from John McCluskey, Chris White and Morgan completed a superb comeback.
An even bigger lead was overcome in Division 1, where Rutherford Lab won 4-3 at King & Queen Wheatley .
