BLACKFIELD & LANGLEY as the Evo-Stik Southern Division One with a Boxing Day derby victory at Testwood Park.

The Watersiders beat AFC Totton by a solitary goal despite playing for the last hour with ten men after Lerone Plummer was sent off on 30 minutes for a high tackle.

Both sides had first chances before Owen Fee scored in time added on in first half. Former Lymington Town man Fee was on hand to nod a loose ball into the net.

The Stags applied pressure for large periods of the second half as they looked to get the equaliser, but they were unable to get past a strong Blackfield defence.

Totton manager Louis Langdown said: “Not a great day. Fair play to Blackfield. They know how to set themselves up defensively and hit us on the break. Their shape was different class and they were excellent at that and we had no imagination to break it down.”

“It was a bad day at the office to say the least. But you have to credit the opposition. It was a scrappy goal and other than that they didn’t hurt us, but we certainly didn’t punch our weight that’s for sure.”

This Saturday (29th December) AFC Totton host Highworth Town whilst Blackfield travel to Slimbridge. On New Year’s Day the Watersiders host Winchester City at 1pm and Totton travel to Thatcham Town.
