Sheffield University Bankers’ second team moved third in the league after a 3-2 win over Richmond - their third on the bounce.

Sheffield went into the game in confident mood, but they went behind after 23 minutes after a defender dwelt too long on the ball.

Two minutes later, though, Bankers were back on level terms when Owen Davies scored.

Three minutes later, new boy Tim Brown finished off a delightful move to put the Bankers ahead, and it was three just after the half-hour mark when Leon Foster showed his experience to deftly flick home. Less than a minute into the second half, Richmond pulled one back from a penalty conversion.

Bankers’ firsts won their second game on the bounce, beating Crewe 5-2 with strikes from Jack Coulson (3), Jimmy Osborne and Matt Godden.
