Tom Smith’s superb strike sealed a second successive home win for Deeping Rangers as they continued their great start to the season in the UCL Premier Division.

The left-back fired into the far corner of the net on 66 minutes after Long Buckby midfielder Ryan Merry’s first-half own-goal.

Jamie Graham and Craig Parker missed the target with early efforts for Deeping.

Parker’s shot was pushed wide and he delivered the corner which came off Merry to make it 1-0 on 22 minutes.

Parker wasted a golden chance to double the lead on the stroke of half-time.

But Smith struck home and Deeping comfortably picked up three points, although Antar Phipps-Norton hit the post at the other end.

Rangers are in third position in the league, behind Holbeach United and Yaxley on goal difference.

Deeping: Doughty, Flack, Smith, Tinkler, Braithwaite, Bogusz (Bates 63), Lewis, Ginty, Graham (Sturgess 71), Oliver (Heron h-t), Parker. Subs not used: Ashton, Bircham.

Goals: Merry (og) 22, Smith 66.
