Reed hits the winner in local derby

Ashwell Academicals entertained local rivals from Baldock at Smallgains on a drizzly Saturday morning.

With expectations high on both sides the game started with early chances being created at both ends.

The score remained level at the break after a lively and closely contested half.

In a tense second half both teams pressed forward trying to find a winner and it was Ashwell who grabbed it at the death when Ben Reed found space in a crowded area to slot a low shot through a forest of legs to clinch a hard-fought victory.
