Summer signing Tom Meechan continued a fine start to his St Neots Town career by firing them to a first win of the Southern League Premier Division season last night.

Meechan grabbed the only goal as David Batch’s side edged out 10-man Leamington at the Premier Plus Stadium.

The former Godmanchester Rovers ace has now struck four times in two appearances for St Neots after hitting a debut hat-trick at the weekend.

Harry O’Malley chose the perfect time to notch his first goal for St Ives Town as they picked up a second successive Southern League Division One (Central) draw.

They shared four goals with newly-promoted AFC Rushden & Diamonds at ProEdge Westwood Road with O’Malley heading a late equaliser after being picked out by a Jack Higgs free kick.

Higgs had earlier put St Ives ahead from the spot after loan ace Luis Vieira had been hacked down in the box.

There were defeats for both local teams in the United Counties League Premier Division.
