For the second week running Littleton scored 3 goals and lost!  Just like last week most of the action took place in the first half, last week half time score was 3 - 3 this week 4 - 3.

The action started early Southam taking the lead on 2 mins.  A centre came in from the left was deflected and fell at the feet of SIMEON SMITH who made no mistake from close range.  Within 4 mins Littleton were level.  A short corner found KYONN EVANS who beat two defenders and hammered home from 14 yards.

Southam went straight down the pitch and SMITH again scored from close range.  Within 3 mins Littleton were level again - EVANS scoring his second from 18 yards.

Littleton then took the lead - following a through ball from STUART HALL - JAMIE INSALL slid past the opposing keeper. The lead however was short lived a long ball from the left was headed in by Southam right slid forward.  On the stroke half-time, the hosts regained the lead through a SMITH cross shot.

Littleton came out fighting in the second half and almost scored when BRENDAN HICKS broke clear but his shot was beaten out.  This was quickly followed by CALLUM CLARKE hitting the bar.

However on the hour Littleton were caught again as the hosts broke to make it 5 - 3.  Despite continual Littleton pressure, they were unable to reduce the arrears and a miserable afternoon was concluded in the last minute, when an own goal completed the scoring.

Littleton are home on Saturday to Earlswood K.O. 3.00pm.
