Brampton 2 Foxton 3
IT HAS been a good week for Foxton, who picked up four points from two away matches.
Having taken a point from a midweek trip to Mildenhall Reserves, a Stuart Ogilvie goal was enough to secure victory in Saturday's match at Brampton.
Manager Andy Cambridge said: "It was a tough week with the hard game at Mildenhall and the unfortunate way it ended, so I was pleased to come away with the maximum points against Brampton.

"It was not the best place to go to try to play football, so it was a case of adjusting to the conditions and grinding out the win.
"The fact we did was very pleasing, and I hope we can maintain the level of determination throughout the season."

The poor playing surface at Brampton forced Foxton to play a more direct game than usual, and the pace of Adam Fields, Pete Manners, and Carlow Lawrence, caused constant problems for the home team.
Fields gave his side the lead in the first half, beating the home goalkeeper to long Darren Chamberlain pass and lobbing the ball into the empty net.
However, the home side hit back with some direct play of their own, which led to them equalising then taking the lead from a hotly disputed penalty.
Manners made it all square when he finished well after good work from Max Margiotta.
Then Ogilvie, who had missed several good chances earlier in the match, made amends by heading in Chris Aristo's free kick for the winner.
The Mildenhall game also saw Foxton pegged back after taking the lead. Lawrence gave them the lead with a close-range finish, but in the final stages Mildenhall poured forward and somehow squeezed in a later equaliser.
Foxton are on the road again this weekend, when they travel to Somersham.
