Baldock Town gave themselves a timely boost ahead of the Benevolent Shield final by beating Premier Division champions elect and previously unbeaten St Ippolyts.

The Reds came from a goal down at the break to win 3-1 thanks to efforts from James Smith, Adam Shelley and the impressive Cameron Brawley.

Saints grabbed the lead in the 38th minute through Glenn Stuart after Baldock failed to clear on several occasions.

Town started the second half well and grabbed a deserved equaliser in the 52nd minute from Smith.
