Eastcote’s derby boost
EASTCOTE picked up some derby bragging rights and remained two points clear at the top of MBBO Regional Division One in the process.
The Boars edged out Old Merchant Taylors’ 3-2 to stay ahead of Ashford at the summit.
It looked easy for the home side when James Berger opened the scoring and a Kevin Haigh goal saw them open a comfortable half-time lead. Haigh, returning from a four-week injury break, made it 3-0 and with 20 minutes remaining and they survived a late OMT fightback to grab the points.
The club’s second string had a narrow 2-1 loss at Wycombe, Kern Sorzano netting a consolation, while the over 60s progressed in the EH Cup, beating St Albans 3-1.
Eastcote Ladies suffered their first loss in four games as they went down 3-0 at Henley.
