Bels pick up vital points

Have your say

Stamford Bels left it late to pick up three vital points in one of few Peterborough and District League matches to survive last week’s rain.

Bels won 3-2 at home to Farcet on Saturday but they did it the hard way, coming from behind to seal the points with a late winner.

Aaron Sismey gave Bels a 1-0 lead at half-time but the Stamford side, who had only won one of their previous 15 games, fell behind in the second half before substitutes Sean O’Donnell and Michael Cantwell struck back for Bels’ second win of the season.

O’Donnell drew Bels level after cutting into the box from the right, and with a couple of minutes to go Cantwell cracked a match-winning 25-yarder.

“It was a long time coming but I thought we would get at least a point because we played the better football,” said manager Martin Conneely, whose side still languish at the wrong end of the table but have picked up four points in their last two games.

“Hopefully now we can get three points against Hampton. If we can get seven points over this period that would be great.”

Bels kick off at Queen Eleanor School at 2pm tomorrow.

Bels: Kieran Arthur, Lee Conneely, Peter Conneely, Paul Cramp, Mark Knighton, Alex Lount, Ben Mason, Aaron Sismey, Richard Taylor, David Wagstaff, Nathan Wilson. Subs: Michael Cantwell, Sean O’Donnell, Hugo Vieira.
