FOOTBALL - Bourton and Frankton return to action with win against Crick Reserves

BOURTON and Frankton returned to action after a two week lay-off by earning a well-deserved 4-2 home win over Crick Reserves.


The club’s previous couple of fixtures had been postponed but The Villagers were good value for their success and gained revenge for their cup defeat at the hands of the same opposition in their last outing.


However, the home side had to come from behind to take all three points with George Smith and Michael Lunn turning the game in Bourton’s favour.


Despite Crick drawing level at half-time a Danny McManus penalty and Tom Armitage strike in the second half tipped the balance in Bourton’s favour again for a very welcome three league points.


And the result means the hosts leapfrog Crick into fifth place in the Coventry Alliance Football League Division 3 table.


Bourton and Frankton travel to league leaders Kenilworth Sporting Reserves on Saturday, December 18 with kick-off at 2.15 pm at Gypsy Lane.
