FLASHBACK – April 2016 : Cruse brace and King give Ath local derby victory

A Matt Cruse brace and a Simon King strike gave Buckingham Athletic a 3-0 local derby victory over neighbours Winslow United on Easter Saturday afternoon.

All the goals came in the second half as Cruse, who scored a hat-trick in the other Spartan South Midlands League, Division 1 clash between the two sides at Christmas, caused the men from Elmfields Gate problems again.
