Locking Park survived a second half onslaught by KVFC to take all three points.

KVFC 2

Locking Park 3

Locking Park held on after a second half onslaught to run out 3-2 winners away at KVFC.

Park started brightly with Rory Atkins hammering a low shot into the net on five minutes after being put through by Ryan Harris. The scores were level not long after when the Locking defence were caught napping.

But Park went into half time 2-1 up after a cross from right-back Russell Carter lobbed the keeper and found the top corner of the net.

In the second half, Harris got a goal on 60 minutes, a shot on the edge of the area bouncing over the home keeper. KVFC pushed forward for the remainder of the game and got a penalty on 84 to make it 3-2.

The rest of the game was backs to the wall for Locking Park, but they held on for a deserved win.

Special mentions for Ian Allchorne for saves that kept Locking in it, Mitch Corrick, Ryan Harris and Rory Atkins. Man of the match went to debutant centre-back Ollie Boyd.

Churchill Club 70 Res 0

Locking Park Reserves continued their good form with a well-earned point against Churchill.

The visitors were the better team in the first-half, but were restricted to shots from range, with neither side creating any clear cut chances.

Locking came back into the game in the second half and created a number of half-chances that they were unable to take. A wonder save from Locking keeper Lyndon Cook with a couple of minutes to go stopped Churchill from nicking the points.

Man of the match went to stand-in Locking keeper Lyndon Cook.
