Local football round up

Melbourn 0 Saffron Crocus 2

A goal in each half was enough to take the three points from this game as Crocus resumed their promotion charge by beating high-flying Melbourn.

Crocus virtually controlling the match from start to finish and keeping the home side on the back foot with some neat attacking play.

Scott Cummings scored the first goal, beating two defenders and slotting the ball into the far corner. Cummings then turned provider for Adam Daniels to finish from close range.

Crocus face Linton Granta A in their final match of 2013.

Haverhill Borough Res 2 Saffron Rangers 4

Rangers had the difficult task of trying to get goals and a result at unbeaten Haverhill Borough Reserves.

Chances were at a premium in the first half but it was a different story after the break as the game opened up.

Ojumu intercepted a wek headed back-pass, rounded the keeper and slotted home to put Rangers one up. Brooks then fired home from 20 yards.

Borough threw everything at the away side and within eight minutes had levelled the match with two goals.

Top scorer Dillon hit a 20-yard free kick to put back in front.

Borough again rallied and were awarded a penalty in the 80th minute but Foster saved the spot kick.

Then Ojumu pounced again, picking up the ball 40 yards out, out-pacing the defence and firing past the keeper to seal the victory.

Saffron Dynamos 0 Balsham Res 0

Saffron Dynamos had to settle for a point against an improving Balsham side.

The hosts had some useful chances but could not find the breakthrough and get on the mark.

Either side could have nicked the points late on, Daniel Rouse and Andy Sell going close for Dynamos in the last five minutes.

Dynamos travel to fourth place Clare Town on Saturday, kick off 2pm.

Kedington United 1 Saffron Rangers Res 1

Rangers battled to earn a point at high-flying Kedington.

They got off to the best possible start. A corner from Phil Beighton was met by Elliott Meichen who powered his header past the Kedington keeper. They had opportunities to double their lead but Kedington found an equaliser on the half-hour.

Rangers put in a fantastic defensive display after the break, with Mark willingale and man-of-the-match Andy smith putting in the tackles, as they sealed a valuable point.
