Division Three

Lynn Napier Reserves 1 Denver 2

Despite missing five of their first choice 11, Denver took another step towards survival with a well-deserved victory at fellow strugglers Lynn Napier Reserves.

The home side took the lead after 16 minutes but Denver went into the break 2-1 up, thanks to a fine individual goal from Matthew Wolfe who then set up James Emmerson to fire home from close range.

PKS Construction /Morris Armitage MoM: Denver’s back four of Jake Dewing, Liam Oliver, Ethan Hill and Will Harris who dealt superbly with very difficult blustery conditions.
