Bourton and Frankton FC’s recent downturn in form in the Coventry Alliance League continued on Saturday as they fell to defeat away at Craven Athletic.
Their 4-2 Division Three reversal was a third successive defeat but it was not without its controversial moments.
Having gone a goal behind, Bourton were level at the break after Kurt Mahoney converted a penalty to make it 1-1.
The visitors then fell behind for the second time early into the second half but again clawed their way back level with Stuart McQuillan on the mark to bring the score to 2-2.
Back came Craven again taking the lead for a third time at 3-2, but Bourton looked to have levelled once again only for a hotly-disputed offside decision and subsequent lengthy consultation to deny them their third goal of the afternoon.
To add salt into the wounds, Craven then broke late on to snatch a fourth goal which itself had more than a hint of offside and strong appeals turned down by the visitor’s defence, to end the afternoon’s scoring.
