Corinthians gained revenge for their defeat to the same opponents on the opening day of the Future Lions United Counties League Premier Division season with a fine 3-0 success in the extra preliminary round clash at Sergeants Lawn.

Lewis Odell gave Corinthians the lead before Pinchbeck, who hadn’t lost since September last year, had Tom Sergeant sent-off just after the half-time whistle.

Desborough Town are also through after they claimed a dramatic 4-3 victory at Arlesey Town.

Ar Tarn opened the scoring through Lamar Parkes before the hosts levelled on the stroke of half-time.

The home side pulled one back but Ar Tarn can now look forward to a home clash with Kempston Rovers in the next round.

Burton Park Wanderers are unbeaten after the first two games of the UCL Division One season after they beat Bugbrooke 3-1 at Latimer Park on Friday night.

Gerrard Sam and Paddy Campbell gave them a 2-0 half-time lead and Dylan Otshudy added the third before the visitors grabbed a late consolation.

Rushden & Higham United came back from a goal down to pick up their first win of the campaign as they returned from Holwell Sports with a 2-1 success.
