Loddon United 0, Brandon Town 3
Brandon were well on top in the early exchanges. The lively Waites and Proctor were causing the home defence anxious moments. The midfield trio of Edwards, Leach and Holder were very strong with Holder, in his first game, looking an excellent signing.
Keeper Cawston dealt easily with everything Loddon produced in the first half and Brandon took a deserved lead when good work by Bland and Waites put Proctor in. He waltzed past two or three defenders and slotted home.
Waites shot wide when well placed. Loddon, too, had a chance to score at the far post but missed.

Brandon countered well - Roy Bland and Roy Peckham were both unlucky when hitting the woodwork but John Waites, weighed in with two second-half goals to secure an excellent 3-0 away win at normally one of the hardest places to get a result.
A club spokesman said: “Well done to manager Simon Allan-Brooks and the whole team who put in a very strong, workmanlike performance.”
