NORTH Leigh suffered late heartbreak as Thame United came from behind to snatch a 2-1 victory on Saturday.

A win would have lifted the Millers out of the drop zone.

And it looked as though George Seacole’s header on 64 minutes was going to give hosts North Leigh a crucial success in the Evo-Stik South League Division 1 Central clash.

However, Matt Peake-Pijnen scored eight minutes from time, before Duran Martin broke home hearts with the winner with just three minutes remaining.

The hosts dominated the first half against their high-flying opponents, but could not take any of the numerous chances they created.

Henry Landers twice went close through free-kicks, before Seacole and Roger James were also denied by Thame goalkeeper Craig Hill.

However, Seacole’s goal midway through the second half was the least North Leigh deserved.

But Thame dug deep and drew level when Ben Sturgess had his free-kick tipped onto the post with a brilliant save from Eddie Cavanagh, only for Peake-Pijnen to slot home the rebound.

And an impressive counter-

attack soon after led to the winner, Martin in the right place to keep Thame fourth in the table and firmly in the play-off places.

Didcot Town stay fifth after producing a devastating first-half display in a 4-1 win at Aylesbury United.

Greg Hackett opened the scoring after just four minutes after good work from Callum McNish.

Aylesbury equalised when Max Hercules netted, but Didcot then took control.

McNish poked home on 12 minutes to put his side back in front, before two minutes later John Dennis made it 3-1.

Seth Humphries hit No 4 five minutes before the break and although Didcot were unable to find another breakthrough after half-time, the damage had been done.

Kidlington remain rooted to the bottom after a 4-0 home defeat to second-placed Bromsgrove Sporting.

Michael McGrath gave the visitors a half-time lead, before further strikes from Richard Gregory (2) and Joshua Quaynor made the game safe.

  • BANBURY United gave Premier Division Central leaders Stourbridge a scare before slipping to a 2-0 defeat.

The Puritans were the better side in the opening period, Ravi Shamsi and Greg Kaziboni going close.

However, Luke Benbow’s 25-yard free-kick put the hosts ahead on 54 minutes, before they wrapped up victory in the second minute of stoppage time through Greg Mills.
