Bingham win thrilling derby game.
By Alan Gupwell
Bingham edge local derby 1-0
Bingham travelled east along the A52 to local rivals Long Bennington eager to keep their away winning streak intact.
It was nip and tuck from the 1st minute with Bennington bringing out the best in keeper Johnson in the first half, Johnson making a string of fine saves.
Bennington hit the cross bar midway though the first half, as they pressed a resolute back four of Crossland, McInnes, Millar and Brooks.
Bingham grew in confidence and as the half progressed Gupwell made a great assist for Davies to run onto and cleverly score far post.
The pair linked up again but Davies was judged offside this time before bagging a second goal.
The second half was more of the same with Bennington creating chance after chance, but this time Mcinnes was in goal and was determined to keep a clean sheet.
In midfield Owen-Jones, Harper, Mason and Sheldon all worked hard, whist Johnson joined a back four with McKenzie and Kelly to ensure Bingham hung on.
So a fantastic game of football ended just one nil to Bingham, with McKenzie getting the parents vote and Gupwell edging Girl of the Match.
