KIDLINGTON are off the bottom of the Evo-Stik South League Division 1 Central table.

A 3-0 victory at Oxfordshire rivals North Leigh last night saw Julian McCalmon’s side leapfrog their rivals in the battle to beat the drop.

Anaclet Odhiambo bagged a first-half double to set Kidlington on the way.

And substitute Ryan Brooks made the points safe when he hit No 3 on 64 minutes.

Kidlington are now only in the relegation zone on goal difference.
