Potterne CFC 2 Fortune Inn FC 0
A 2-0 VICTORY for Potterne CFC against Fortune Inn has given the villagers a chance of finishing as runners-up to their fierce rivals FC Buscots, who they play at the weekend and must beat and hope for other results go their way if they are to do deny Miller Sports A second spot.
Neil Clark's goal separated the teams at half time and Pete Huntley’s second half effort sealed them a third straight victory, however a late upturn in form has probably come too late to earn the cricketers’ any silverware this term.
