Huntingdon Town 2-1 Bugbrooke St Michaels

HUNTINGDON Town secured their UCL Division 1 status for next year with an impressive win over Bugbrooke St Michaels on Saturday.

Huntingdon's difficult season began with defeat away to Bugbrooke in August, but promises to finish on a high after they came from behind to snatch their first victory in six games. The win moves them a point clear of the re-election positions at the expense of Olney Town, who have no more games to play.

Visitors Bugbrooke took the lead at Jubilee Park after 19 minutes when Shaun Daly scored his seventh goal of the season, and held the lead until half-time. After the break, Huntingdon had the better of the game, and within seven minutes were on level terms through Joel Furness. It wasn't until 82 minutes that Huntingdon could make their pressure count, when Lee Booker scored to seal the victory.

The win completes a remarkable comeback for Town, who rescued a vital point from 2-0 down against Olney just a fortnight ago. That draw proved to be crucial for both teams, as Olney will now face re-election to league along with Irchester United. Huntingdon have one league game remaining, away to Thrapston on Friday.
