Haddenham Rovers Colts 3 Newmarket Town 2

HADDENHAM opened their season with a hard fought victory over a resiliant Newmarket Town.

Newmarket started stronger but Haddenham took the lead against the run of play when Kieran Petty's scored. Petty then made it 2-0 when he lashed in a corner from eight yards. Newmarket pulled a goal back when Rovers failed to clear but the two goal advantage was re-established on 20 minutes when captain Jake Alsop found Matthew Wright who struck a precise shot past the keeper. Haddenham were again pegged back when the visitors took advantage of some poor defending to strike home a thumping shot to make the score 3-2 just before the break.

The goalless second half saw both teams defend more soundly as they adapted well to this season's larger pitch and Haddenham held on for the win.
