Milton won their first league game of the season beating Cottenham Utd 2-0 at home on Wed 17th Aug with goals from Chris Barrett & Dylan Lomas. Naturally new manager Ash Moden was delighted to get the first 3 points on the board with what he described as a superb resolute performance. They followed that up 3 days later with a fine 4-2 away win at Somersham Town. Goalscorers were Lee Northfield, Liam Clements and Luke Thurlborne (2).
The new manager has recruited well over the summer and the new players have gelled well. There is every reason for optimism for the long season ahead...
