Hig­gins’ goal for Moon helps put hor­ror in­jury be­hind him

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Hig­gins put a dou­ble leg frac­ture he suf­fered a year ago be­hind him by com­ing off the bench to score in a 2-2 draw against Last Post. Jack May­hard also net­ted for base­ment boys Moon, who came back from two goals down af­ter Ge­orge Dee­gan and Craig Bous­field had put Post in the driv­ing seat.

Moon man­ager Pe­ter Fur­ness said: “The in­jury came when Sean was play­ing a Satur­day game for Prest­wood. He said it was the worst chal­lenge he has ever seen and it broke both bones in his leg. When I went to see him ly­ing up in hospi­tal he said he never wanted to play foot­ball again, but then he came to see me in the pub and asked if I still had his player reg­is­tra­tion card, as he was itch­ing to get back into it.

“He was only on the pitch for five min­utes on Sun­day, but he came on and slot­ted in our equaliser, which was a bril­liant mo­ment for him. We are all so happy for Sean.”

Else­where in the Pre­mier, Bran­don and Al­fie Cum­ber both net­ted as reign­ing cham­pi­ons Chal­font Saints con­tin­ued their ti­tle defence, Luke Smith also scor­ing in their 3-0 win over Mag­pies 91.

Near­est chal­lengers Di­namo Che­quers kept pace at the top af­ter re­gain­ing some re­cent form, their lat­est win a 2-0 tri­umph over Pioneer, with goals from Kyle Glaster and Ciprian Chel­sau.

Old Bel­mont Pugilists con­sol­i­dated top spot in Divi­sion One, with vic­tory over their near­est ri­vals, Mag­pies 91 Re­serves, goals from Sam Ped­dler, Martin Loakes and Ben Holt earn­ing them a 3-0 suc­cess.

Also in Divi­sion One, both Che­sham Ath­letic (Black Cat) and Pioneer Re­serves had con­vinc­ing wins, net­ting five goals apiece against El­do­rado and SFG Stone re­spec­tively.

Ath­letic’s visit to Prest­wood proved a fruit­ful one as two goals from Dan Gif­ford and one each from Ja­son Dun­can, Jack Grant and Ryan Smith saw off the chal­lenge of El­do­rado, for whom Dar­rell Cooper and Todd Mills replied.

Pioneer’s nap hand, mean­while, came cour­tesy of a Craig Ot­toway dou­ble, plus fur­ther strikes from Jor­dan Richard­son, Char­lie Rad­cliffe and Karl Har­ris, while Ryan Whit­ney bagged a con­so­la­tion for SFG.
