Steeton AFC News
The 1st team suffered their first league defeat since August at Hall Green on Saturday. Despite Chris Simpson giving us an early lead the home side came back and levelled in the second half. A late penalty that was saved by Phil Rishton landed back at the takers feet and he slotted home at the second attempt.
The reserves raced into a four goal lead at home to Golcar, Adam Spencer, Ross Bailey, Dean Mitchell and an OG put us well in command, but late defensive lapses let the visitors back into the game and they rallied with three late strikes to leave us hanging on for a 4-3 win.
The Juniors drew 0-0 at Thackley on Sunday but had Josh Hardisty to thank for a penalty save in the first half to ensure we took a share of the points in a game where both defences were on top.
