SCF edge out Shoebury as ATF beat Leigh Rd

SCF come from behind to beat Shoebury 4-3 as ATF win 4-1 against Leigh Rd

In the first set of SCFL fixtures in 2020, SCF produced a late comeback to beat Shoebury 4-3 scoring twice in the last 8 minutes to win. SCF goals from Crook (2), Green and Fellows secured the points with Shoebury unfortunate to lose in another crazy game between the two sides.
Shoebury had the better of the first half leading 2-1 at the break with a 25 yard volley from Keegan opening the scoring. SCF equalized early in the second half only to see SBC retake the lead with 20 minutes remaining.
SCF weren't to be denied however and Crook scored a late winner to secure the points and keep pace with table topping ATF, who themselves overcame Leigh Rd 4-1 at Cupids with Ash Jenkinson grabbing another SCFL hat-trick.

ATF are setting the SCFL pace this season with 5 wins from 5. They are looking to regain the SCFL Title from SCF who currently sit second, 2 points behind them. ATF and SCF play this coming Saturday with both sides looking to continue their winning run.
