Biggleswade Town boss Lee Allinson has hailed new signing Joe White after the Waders ended their draw hoodoo with a 2-0 victory over Redditch United at Langford Road on Saturday.

The unbeaten Waders had gone 45 days without a win, drawing five Evo-Stik Southern League Central games in a row and falling out of the FA Cup.

However, they earned their third win and rose to fifth in the league after a Jack Bradshaw strike and debut goal from White - who impressed after signing on-loan from Stevenage.

Speaking on the club’s YouTube channel - BiggleswadeTownTV - Allinson said: “Joe was outstanding.

“It was an instinctive finish. He hadn’t been playing much football (until signing) but he never stopped running.”

The opener came after 29 minutes, when Josh Urquhart flicked on Matt Ball’s corner for White to slot in. After the 1-0 half-time score, it took until the 92nd minute for Biggleswade to seal it - with Bradshaw rocketing a free-kick into the top-corner.

The Waders travel to league leaders Kettering Town on Saturday, in Allinson’s toughest test yet.
