St Neots Men’s 1sts made hard work of recording their first win of 2016.

They eventually came away from Bourne Deeping 2nds with a 3-2 success in Division Three North-West last Saturday.

Player-coach Jamie Cluer was prominently involved as they recovered from falling behind to hit the front on the stroke of half-time.

Cluer fired the equaliser before laying on the second goal for Darren Coles, but Saints failed to capitalise on a series of short corners in the second half and paid the price when the hosts levelled while Phil Johns sat out in the sin bin for an off-the-ball foul.

But just as it appeared they would have to settle for a disappointing draw, Saints snatched victory. David Humphrey was in the right place at the right time to sweep in a Garth Mooney blast from a short corner earned by Cluer.
