Coventry Alliance Football League Division 3
Whitnash Town 1 Bourton and Frankton 0
Bourton and Frankton’s new manager Michael Hoey had a losing start but will take plenty of encouragement from his side’s narrow defeat away at Whitnash Town on Saturday.
As the scoreline suggests, it was a close game in windy conditions with the visitors deserving at least a draw in their first game back after a week off.
Having seen several decent chances go close, Bourton went behind 10 minutes from end and although they pressed forward in the latter stages were unable to grab a deserved equaliser. In particular they can probably feel hard done by to not have been given the chance to level in stoppage time when strong valid calls for a late penalty were turned away.
