Lilies Reserves feel goalkeeper Ben Collett was fouled in the build-up to Houghton & Wyton winner
Two of Chatteris Town’s senior sides were feeling mixed emotions after the latest round of fixtures.
The Reserves finished on the wrong side of a five-goal thriller at Houghton & Wyton, despite suffering from a dubious refereeing decision.
Goalkeeper Ben Collett was allegedly fouled in the build-up to the hosts’ winner, which referee Paul Doyle did not rule for, but manager Sean McKay is not using this as an excuse.
“With situations like that, you don’t really get the rub of the green away from home,” McKay stated.
“It was always going to be difficult because we had seven unavailable, but I think the eleven we had were capable of getting a result.
“We were probably the better side over the 90 minutes.”
The second-string visit Bar Hill Reserves in the Cambs Junior Challenge Cup on Saturday (December 8, 1.45pm) and then the following week, entertain Debden in the last-eight of the Creake Charity Shield.
In Mead Plant & Grab 4C, the A team stretched their form to four wins in their previous six games with a comfortable 5-2 win at Benwick Res, Frankie Ransome’s spectacular overhead kick the pick of the goals.
The first team’s top-four clash in Kershaw Senior A with Gamlingay United was postponed owing to a waterlogged pitch. Next, Alex Kaufman’s side look to replace Over Sports at the top, who took full advantage of the Lilies’ absence, but expect a tricky West Street test with promotion challengers Milton (3pm).
The A side, who currently lie in fourth spot, return to league action at home to Littleport Town on December 15 (2pm).
