Lowly Woodford United sprung the surprise of the UCL Cup by beating Newport Pagnell Town 3-1.

Joel McCormick’s well taken goal had the Swans ahead after 13 minutes.

Some sloppy Swans defending was punished by Ryan Charles-Comery four minutes before half time.

Confidence boosted, Woodford took a 47th minute lead through Eddie Stewart.

Eathan Curtis sealed the Reds’ victory 13 minutes from time.

The disappointing result comes after another defeat for Darren Lynch’s men as they went down 4-2 at fellow strugglers Sleaford Town on Saturday.

Jack Pemberton’s 25 yard volley gave Sleaford the lead after 22 minutes.

Six minutes later the Swans were on terms with a John Thorpe penalty.

Seven minutes before half time Sleaford were awarded a spot kick. Josh McAdoo saved Scott Coupland’s spot kick but Fraser Cobb followed up to score.

Ben Garrick added a home third after 56 minutes, slotting home after a Tom Siddons effort came back off the post.

A cracking strike from David Hone after 65 minutes clinched the points for Sleaford.

Ben Clarke scored a 78th minute strike for Newport with the aid of a deflection, but it was nothing more than a consolation, leaving the Swans 17th in the table.

In Spartan Midlands Division One, Stony Stratford went down 3-1 to Chesham.

In Division Two, Old Bradwell were 3-1 winners over Grendon Rangers, but Willen lost 3-1 to Pitstone & Ivinghoe, while New Bradwell St Peter lost 3-2 to Totternhoe.
