The city side went down 3-1 to Banbury United in the Southern League Premier Central Division at the Bee Arena. Banbury went top of the table as a result.

“We’ve played two of the better teams in the league in the last few days in Banbury and Stourbridge and been better than both of them, yet picked up just one point” Dean.

“We’re not getting the luck teams need. We outshot and outpassed a very good side last night, but they were better in both penalty areas which is where it matters.”
