The second-placed Tulips fell behind midway through the first half, but Beeson converted two spot-kicks, one either side of the break, to keep his side six points behind runaway leaders Shaw Lane and eight points clear of third -placed Witton Albion. Witton have seven matches in hand!

Stamford AFC were expected to challenge for honours at this level following their relegation from the Premier Division last season, but instead they’ve struggled throughout a tough league campaign.

And it continued yesterday as the Damiels lost 1-0 at home to Belper, the winning goal arriving two minutes before the break. Stamford are 15th in the table.
