Ross Stone was on target for Buckingham Town in a 2-1 United Counties League Division One defeat at Lutterworth Athletic on Saturday last week.

Athletic fell two behind from goals in the 40th and 73rd minutes before Stone gave them renewed hope with a strike 12 minutes from time.

Manager Neil Griffiths, pictured, said: “We were unlucky not to get something from the game. It was a bitter blow to concede so close to half time after defending very well.

“Despite some good chances after Dan scored we couldn’t get what I felt would have been a deserved equaliser.”
