Abingdon Utd 0

Winchester City 2 (Docker 28, Awuah 90)

Abingdon United fell to defeat against basement boys Winchester, who completed an unlikely Division 1 South & West double.

The visitors had the ball in the net in the fifth minute, only for the effort to be ruled out for offside.

Abingdon replied with a fierce strike from Mark Janes, that former Oxford United keeper Chris Tardif held well.

Winchester went in front when John Docker tried his luck from 30 yards.

The shot looked to be covered by Abingdon keeper Sam Warrell, but the ball squirmed under his body into the net.

When Abingdon did create some pressure, they found Tardif in good form.

The keeper denied Tom Austin in the last minute of the half, plucking a free-kick out of the air.

Abingdon had the majority of the possession after the break, but failed to break down Winchester’s defence.

Their best chance came from a long throw from James Organ, which Micheas Herbert rose to meet at the near post.

As the ball ran to Pablo Haysham, his first-time shot was again held by Tardif.

As time ran out, Winchester scored a second to put the game beyond doubt as they broke upfield and Jones Awuah fired home.
