Bourne Town are hoping their luck will turn following a 6-2 defeat at the hands of St Neots on Tuesday.

The Wakes were never in the running against the Cambridgeshire side and boss Darren Munton admits they never got near them.

He said: “They were the best footballing side I’ve seen in this league for a long time.

“Their first goal was from a set piece which we didn’t deal with and then for a couple of goals we gave the ball away - it’s been the story of our season really.

“We were better in the second half. They scored first to make it six but we pulled two back through Jonny Currall penalties and we could have had more.”

The defeat followed Saturday’s loss to Bugbrooke St Michaels. Paul Beevor fired a deflected 86th-minute winner for the visitors at the Abbey Lawn.

Munton said: “We’ve not had a lot of luck this season and we’re hoping it’s going to change soon. We don’t pay our players as some clubs do so at times we are punching above our weight but we’ve just got to keep going.”

The Wakes just have one point from the first game of the season. They face Olney Town away tomorrow and Blackstones on Wednesday at home.
