Evo-Stik Southern Premier

Arlesey made it five games without defeat as they drew with Bashley on Tuesday evening.

After recent wins against Evesham United, Hemel Hempstead Town, Cirencester Town and Banbury United, the Blues posted another valuable point as they continued their rise up the Southern Premier table with a draw against Bashley.

They are now eighth from bottom, and just a point behind neighbours Hitchin Town and those relegation fears seem to be a thing of the past.

Hinchingbrooke Cup semi-final

Stotfold are through to the final of the Hinchingbrook Cup final after beating Deeping Rangers 3-2 after extra time.

Lewis Holmes, Nicholl and Josh Cook got the goals in Tuesday’s nights win. Stotfold will play either Huntingdon Town or the winner of St Neots Town and Rothwell Corinthians.

Langford beat Ampthill Town 3-1.

The Reds gained sweet revenge for two defeats earlier in the season in a hard-fought but entertaining encounter at Forde Park.

Langford were ahead on five minutes when an in-swinging corner was met by Nathan Moulton and found its way into the net with the aid of a big deflection.

The visitors were back on level terms after 20 minutes when Christian Lester volleyed in a superb goal on the turn.

The second half began with both sides playing attacking football. Langford took the lead when a long throw from Ryan Ellis was half-cleared to the edge of the box and James Peters fired home. Then, on 71 minutes, Ben Sawyers’ pace sent him racing through and his low cross was bundled home by Paul Garrett.

Langford: Beckwith, Fitton, Ellis, O Peters, Auburn, J Peters, Moulton, Garrett, Brown, Forsythe, Osbourne, Subs used: Sawyer, Russell, Cleghorn.
