Liam Boath pulled one back for the Foundrymen 10 minutes into the second half but Raunds saw things out as they hit back from their midweek defeat at Peterborough Sports.

Lewis O’Dell gave the Lankies the lead, only for Jack Wisniewski to cancel it out before Jedd Whiteman’s penalty put Thrapston in front before the break.
