United’s home re­turn ends with a dis­ap­point­ing de­feat

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

HAYES & Yead­ing United’s first Satur­day af­ter­noon home game in five years did not prove to be worth the wait as they were beaten by Leam­ing­ton.

Mickey Lewis’s side have fi­nally re­turned to the bor­ough after a no­madic ex­is­tence and are now ful­fill­ing fix­tures at the Sky Ex Com­mu­nity Sta­dium.

The Bea­cons­field Road venue hosted a win last week against Hitchin, but its first week­end match was not such a happy oc- ca­sion as United went down 1-0 to the vis­i­tors. Leam­ing­ton took just six min­utes to beat Hayes & Yead­ing keeper Louis Wells as Jack Ed­wards pow­ered a header past the ex­pe­ri­enced cus­to­dian.

Dy­lan Kear­ney and Moutaouakil both went close with late chances, how­ever it was not to be as the away side held on for vic­tory.

Lewis’s boys were due back in ac­tion last night (Tues­day) as they made the trip to Hamp­shire to face Bas­ingstoke Town in an­other South­ern League Premier Di­vi­sion clash.

Mean­while, in Di­vi­sion One Cen­tral, Uxbridge had Mitchell Wise­man and Matty Woods to thank for their share of the points away at Ayles­bury.

Louis Stead fired Mark Burgess’ North­wood to a fine vic­tory on the road at Bed­ford Town.

Worse news came from down in the Com­bined Coun­ties Premier Di­vi­sion as AFC Hayes were on the wrong side of a 3-1 score­line against Hor­ley Town.
