Ancaster ended their run of poor results with a gritty performance against a much improved Cranmer side.

In an evenly contested match, Cranmer took the lead when one of many long balls caught the visitors high and square, allowing the home forward to run through and finish well. Reid and Watson failed to take good chances for the visitors in first half.

Shortly after the break, O’Brien carelessly gave the ball away in his own half and after running virtually unchallenged, the home winger finished well to give Cranmer a two-goal lead.

To their credit, the visitors were soon back in the game after Hare was brought down in the box. He got up to stroke in the penalty.

This spurred on Ancaster and they were soon level when Watson burst through and finished off the post.

A fine pass from Fowell found Williamson who calmly beat the keeper, and the impressive Fowell sealed the victory with a near post header from a corner

Leeson, in goal, was in fine form for the visitors and Nash was named man of the match.
