A thoroughly entertaining game was played out by the Reserves sides of Buckley Town and Brickfield Rangers at the Globe with some excellent players on show for both sides.
Star of the show for Buckley was Andy Jones who bagged another two goals to add to Saturdays making him the top scorer so far this season.
There were also good run outs for Josh Jones working his way back to full sharpness and James Rumsey who together made a good pairing at the centre of Buckley’s midfield.
The first half was competitive with both sides giving as good as they got but Brickfield were quicker out of the traps in the second half and went into a 2-0 lead through Matt Wareham on 64 minutes and Phill Carr on 69. Jones pulled one back for Buckley two minutes later but Zack Price made it three for Brickfield with 12 left.
Kam Riding made a second half cameo appearance and the youngster impressed with his neat ball skills and an intelligent pass late on that put Andy Jones in on goal to score his second of the night as Buckley pressed to try and level the game. It came too late to secure the draw and Buckley were left to rue the missed chances of the first half that saw their first defeat of this campaign.
