Millwey Rise Reserves recorded arguably the ‘result of the day’ in the Macron League – certainly in the bottom division – when they defeated table-topping Cheriton Fitzpaine Reserves 3-1 at Cloakham Lawns, writes Dick Sturch.

Rise took the lead in the 10th minute from a penalty slotted home by James Morgan. Stuart King made it two when he netted midway through the half.

A minute before the break Cheriton came back into the game with a goal.

Twenty minutes into the second period Chris Lusby made it three for the home side. Cheriton then fluffed an opportunity to close the gap when they failed to score from a penalty.

This was Millwey’s best performance of the season to date and augers well for the coming games. Leon Best had a great first half, but the Man of the Match award winner was Stuart King, who was outstanding in his forward role.
