Berko notched their second double of the week, in the only Spartan South Midlands League game to beat the snow on Tuesday night. They were on top for most of the 90 minutes and with better finishing would have had a more convincing scoreline.
Myles Stephenson was first to threaten by beating couple of men in a run across the front of the penalty box before unleashing a shot that Scott Waters saved. The recalled Josh Chamberlain took a free kick from just outside the penalty area and it went just past the goal frame. Waters produced a fine double save from Connor Calcutt who looked odds on to score. A Frankie Jowle corner was not cleared and Dale Sears arrived to shoot what proved to be the only goal of the match in the 41st minute.

Robbie Freeman was getting space on the left flank and one of his crosses produced an almighty scramble on the goal-line with Berko eventually clearing their lines. Berko totally dominated after the interval but could not convert their chances. A Chamberlain overhead kick was tipped for a corner and Calcutt hesitated when a shot was on. Sears and Calcutt picked up yellow cards in the second half.

Jowle was finding plenty space for Berko on the right wing but too often his crosses were caught by Walters or nodded away by defenders. The corner count was heavily in the visitors’ favour and they were able to play keep ball in injury time to hang on to a precious three points.

Tasker; Butler, Rodrigoe, Bevan, Griggs, Sears, Jowle, Culaj, Calcutt, Stephenson(Pritchard), Chamberlain (Thompson). Subs. Not used Gavin, Frederick & Branson .
