Ramgarhia 3, Long Sutton 1

Sutton started the brighter at the league leaders on Sunday and opened the scoring with a well worked goal down the right, as a fine ball from Ellis found Hales who smashed home.

A Fyson drag-flick was expertly saved from the outstanding Ramgarhia keeper. Ramgarhia went into half time 2-1 up and struggled to break the Sutton defence. Sutton’s man of the match keeper, Cliff, kept them in the game. He pulled off a fantastic flick save only to have it retaken as he was judged to have moved before the flick had been taken. Ramgarhia added a third from the retake however Cliff saved another flick.
