SSMFL,D1: King & Coles bag doubles as Winslow maintain promotion push

Winslow United maintained their promotion push with a 4-1 victory at Codicote in the Spartan South Midlands League, Division 1 today.

The result has seen a five-point gap open up between United, in fourth, and Wodson Park, directly below them in fifth position.

Winslow started brightly as they won two corners in the opening four minutes but it was the home side who took the lead in the fifth minute from the penalty spot.

United had to wait until the 33rd minute to get back on level terms as Aaron King fired in the equaliser.
