FOOTBALL: Banbury miss out in final
11:40am Wednesday 18th April 2012 in Sport
Banbury United’s hopes of lifting the Southern League’s Red Insure Cup were dashed by a 2-1 defeat to Clevedon in the second leg at the Spencer Stadium.
It followed a goalless draw in the first leg a fortnight ago.
Banbury were soon up against it as they fell behind on 11 minutes, the dangerous Henry Muggeridge firing home a fine solo goal.
Howard Forington saw an effort kicked off the line as Banbury battled back and their efforts were rewarded by an equaliser on 22 minutes.
Ben Polk provided the cross and Josh Cole made no mistake with a well-placed header into the bottom corner.
The visitors snatched the crucial second goal after 75 minutes when a mistake in the Banbury defence allowed Chas Henning to run on and draw keeper Andy Kemp before firing home a deserved winner.
