Brimley's double whammy

Thursday, 23rd August 2001.

DARREN Brimley put one in at both ends as Haverhill drew 2-2 at home to King's Lynn Reserves.

After scoring an own goal on 20 minutes, he made amends on the half hour slotting in from a corner.

Paul Jenkin gave Haverhill the lead just before half time with a volley from Marcus Hunt's through ball.

But King's Lynn scored a minute after the restart to claim a point.

Graham Jones twisted his knee and was taken off, but Haverhill weathered the storm to claim their share of the spoils.

Haverhill manager Paul Goodman said his side were lucky to get a point.

"King's Lynn should have won it really. On the day they were the best side.

"They hit the woodwork four times but we defended really well."

"We didn't really deserve it, but that's good if you can still get a result.

"We did reasonbly well in pre-season, but this wasn;t a very good performance and we could do a lot better than that,"

Meanwhile, last year's bottom club March could be in for another long season after a 7-0 defeat at Cornard.

Manager Barry Cook fielded a team of largely junior league players he has brought with him from North Lynn as he goes about rebuilding the squad.

"The scoreline didn't reflect the game really. We had two or three chances, but they had eight and scored seven.

"By the end, we weren't even going through the motions. We were just gobsmacked."

Histon Reserves could not have asked for a better start to life in the league with a 3-0 away win at Whitton.

The team clinched promotion from the Cambridgeshire Premier League last season and set their stall out for this campaign in the best possible way.

Gareth Jones set Histon on their way after quarter of an hour with a classy goal following a one-two with Zac Nedomovic.

Whitton came back into the game late in the first half but their hopes were killed off when Will Celentano put in a good cross which Nedomovic slotted in on 57 minutes.

Celentano hit another near post cross in eight minutes later which a Whitton defender turned into his own net.

Assistant manager Bobby Broom said: "It was an excellent team performance. We got people behind the ball and played well."

The only down side was a knee injury to Nedomovic which could see him out of Wednesday's clash with Haverhill.
