SAINTS Reserves hosted league leaders Congresbury and gave a much-improved performance.

Saints recalled Andy Hayes and Lee Whittaker who worked hard in midfield, along with Troy Hayes. Congresbury started the better, but found Saints’ keeper in top form and the back four of Hartley, Carpenter, Whittaker and Bennellick were outstanding.

Hodrian and Troy Hayes both went close and Congresbury looked dangerous from set play, but Allchorne was in good form.

Saints had some great performances, noticeably Carpenter, the Whittaker brothers and the Hayes brothers, but the M&S man of the match went two the whole side.
