UCL Division One
Whitworths 1 Huntingdon Town 2
HUNTINGDON visited Whitworths hoping to rebuild their flagging promotion hopes after turning in an excellent midweek Senior Cup performance against UCL Premier side St Ives Town.
Manager Darren Young was able to field a more settled team and the game saw Ricky Dear complete his first 90 minutes after a serious injury. Dear's performance was so good Young rated him as man of the match.

Richard Moore had a great volley saved by the home goalkeeper in the first half, while Chris Caswell and Declan Rodgers might have done better with a little more composure.
Soon after the break Adam Taylor worked enough space to turn and cut inside. He deftly placed his shot into the corner of the net to give the visitors the lead their play had deserved.

Continued domination by Town seemed sure to yield more goals but against the run of play, Whitworths managed to score a stunning equaliser.
From more than 25 yards, and with no danger to the visitors' goal apparent, Lukasz Saluda fired an unstoppable drive into the roof of the net.
Town's composure was ruffled for a time but great defensive work by Michael Duroe, Darren Ray and Mark Hackett and the continued improvement of young Tom Moran saw the Jubilee Park side through the sticky period to grab the lead.
Beating three men with almost consummate ease, Nicky Young unleashed a blinder that the keeper would have been pleased to see, never mind save.
Young said: "We were good value for our win and unlucky to concede a goal which Chris Benton could do nothing about and it followed on from a great team performance against St Ives in the week when we lost in extra time."
