United’s home return ends with a disappointing defeat
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.
