The first team returned to league action with the visit of Biggleswade United and shared the points following a 2-2 draw. We started well and took an early lead when a mistake in the Biggleswade defence gave the ball to Kerkstun Macpherson who spotted the Biggleswade keeper off his line and lobbed him with a very good finish from outside the area to make it 1-0. After looking comfortable we then allowed our visitors into the game when a mistake in our back line was punished by Abraham Eze to make it 1-1. We then lost the ball in our half and were again punished, this time Biggleswade midfielder Nick Elliot found the back of the net to see us 2-1 down at half time. We did not let our heads drop and drew level when Zaine Gangadeen rounded the keeper who then got up and fouled Gangadeen and we were awarded a penalty. The Biggleswade keeper was sent off, Gangadeen put the penalty straight into the top corner, and the scores were level again. Both sides pushed for the winner late on in what became a very open game, but neither team could get the third goal and the points were shared, which was a fair result overall. We travel to Welwyn Garden City in the Semi Final of the Premier Division Cup on Wednesday.
Line-up: Le Tissier, Milton, Davite, Anwar, O'Hara, Wright, Ferguson, King, Macpherson (Turay), Gangadeen, Jno-Baptiste
Subs not used: Buraimoh, Benmansour, Sedgley, Smith
