FOXTON slipped to their second defeat in four matches after losing 3-2 at Somersham Town on Saturday.

The visitors started brightly but went behind after 20 minutes, following a mix-up between goalkeeper Jamie Chamberlain and defender Ed Ranner.

Andy Cambridge's men then fell further behind after Somersham were awarded a 35th minute penalty for handball.

Foxton trailed 2-0 at the break, but mounted a spirited second-half fightback.

Goals from Barry Webber and Stuart Ogilvie restored parity, but a late winner for the home side meant that Foxton left the West End Ground empty-handed.

Cambridge said: "To lose two soft goals against the run of play left us with a challenge in the second half, but the team responded well and deservedly got back level.

"Then to give away yet another soft goal was a harsh lesson but one I'm sure we can take on board which can only help our progress."
