Newport Pagnell Town 1-3 Sleaford Town
Future Lions United Counties League Premier
4th August 2018 Attendance 87

After a fairly even start to the game Sleaford took the lead when a Joe Smith through ball allowed George Couzens to chase on and drive the ball across the Mark Osborn and into the bottom corner of the net to open the scoring after 24 minutes. Newport pressed hard for an equaliser and within a minute of going behind Ben Machin managed a fantastic headed goal line clearance to deny Dom Lawless. A stunning volley from just outside the area saw Michael Lyon open the Swans goal account for the season as his strike levelled the scores with 33 minutes played. Sleaford demonstrated a resilience and team spirit that was missing for much of last season as they responded well and nudged themselves into a half time lead after a deep Luke Hollingworth free kick was emphatically headed home by Simon Bolland (45+1 mins).
The second half saw both sides largely cancel each other out as they failed to carve out any real chances between them. With time running out Newport went in search of an equaliser but it was the visitors who scored again to make the game safe, George Couzens, Liam Harris and Joe Smith played some lovely possession football on the edge of the area before Smith squared for Liam Harper to slam home from 5 yards out (82 mins). Sam Greenwood rattled the crossbar from 25 yards deep into added on time as Jamie Shaw's men looked to extend their lead but 3-1 was how it remained.

Swans: Mark Osborn (c), Adam Pryke, Damon Herbert, Liam Smyth, Yaw Ofosu (Matt Cullis 83’), Dave Baker, Michael Lyon, Josh Winters, Tom Liversedge, Fazel Koriya, Dom Lawless (Harry Stratton 57’)
