HELLENIC LEAGUE: Wootton Bassett stunned by late Abingdon strike
6:00am Thursday 31st October 2013 in Sport
WOOTTON Bassett slipped to a late defeat against lowly Abingdon United last night in the Hellenic League Premier Division.
Graham Edney’s 86th minute strike gave bottom club Abingdon an unlikely victory after Sam Collier looked to have secured a draw for Bassett.
Jason Milhench got hosts Bassett off to the perfect start when he opened the scoring on seven minutes.
Ben McCredy levelled for the visitors on 22 minutes before Sam Elkins put the visitors 2-1 up at the Corinium Stadium.
With just eight minutes remaining Collier scored to make it 2-2 only for Edney to steal the points for Abindon with four minutes remaining.
Elsewhere in the Premier, Shrivenham went down 5-1 at home to Highmoor Ibis.
In the Southern League, Chippenham boss Steve Winter was sacked last night.
Winter’s fate was sealed at a board meeting with all members voting to dismiss the 40-year-old.
