Rovers triumphed 2-0 at Cogenhoe United on Tuesday night thanks to first-half goals from new signing Declan Rogers and Jordan Brown.

Eynesbury were then reliant on a number of smart saves from goalkeeper Dan George, in the second period of his first Premier Division appearance for the club, to preserve their advantage.

Godmanchester Rovers were beaten in their first Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division outing on Tuesday.

Ollie Drake’s men lost 2-0 at early pacesetters Coggeshall Town after also bowing out of the FA Cup – at Cogenhoe – last weekend.

St Neots Town Reserves were victorious in their first outing at Step 6 level last night (Wednesday).

The Saints second string won 1-0 at London Lions in their Spartan South Midlands League Division One opener which featured an early goal and a late penalty save.

Dean Parratt made the breakthrough after eight minutes while goalkeeper Alex Vitue capped a fine performance by keeping out a stoppage time spot-kick.
