Bourne Town maintained their sixth spot in the UCL Division One with an away victory against one of the league’s struggling sides Bugbrooke St Michaels.

The Wakes won 2-1 thanks to strikes from Craig Rook and Zak Munton.

Bourne wasted no time in opening the scoring, taking the lead in just the third minute through Rook, who turned on the edge of the box before firing home with an impressive blast.

The Wakes have really established themselves as a production line of young talent of late, and their latest debutant Max Cooper, playing at left back, had the assist for the opening goal to cap a solid display in defence.

After seeing out the rest of the half Bourne then made a quick start after the break as well, doubling their lead through young strike sensation Zak Munton, who hit the back of the net in the 49th minute.

Sam Wilson won the ball in the centre of the park, before playing a killer ball to dispatch Munton for his 15th goal of the season, which puts him ninth in UCL Premier Division’s goal-scoring charts. Some feat for a teenager who wasn’t starting every game at the start of the season as the club tried to ease the burden on him.

Jimmy Moore notched a goal back for Bugbrooke St Michaels with 16 minutes to go but Bourne held on for victory.

The Wakes host Irchester United on Saturday.
