BOUR­TON Rovers Re­serves won 4-2 at Chadling­ton in the Wit­ney and District League Di­vi­sion One

Ben Mcphilimey volleyed Rovers ahead with a sub­lime fin­ish but af­ter the break Chadling­ton hauled them­selves level with a free header find­ing the back of the net.

Mitch Thomasen re­stored the Bour­ton lead be­fore Lee Mos­son was fouled in the penalty area but Mcphilimey’s penalty was su­perbly saved by the Chadling­ton keeper

Two min­utes later Thomasen put Rovers 3-1 up be­fore Chadling­ton pulled a goal back.

Mos­son put the game to bed when he was found by mid­fielder Joe Boote with a su­perb pass and ca­ressed the ball past the om rush­ing keeper

The first team could only man­age a point at home against Shriven­ham De­vel­op­ment in the Hellenic League Di­vi­sion Two West and are 15 points off the top with five games in hand over More­ton Rangers and Wan­tage Town.

Josh Field­ing scored the Rovers goal in the 58th minute but Shriven­ham equalised with 10 min­utes re­main­ing.

Rovers face a tricky trip to Sharp­ness in the semi fi­nal of the Glouces­ter­shire North­ern Am­a­teur Cup (North) this Sat­ur­day.
