The Walnut Boys guaranteed a top two finish with victory over their local rivals. This was billed as a clash between two of the division’s top teams, second versus third, a clash of the Titans. Unfortunately, the stark reality was that this was a game of little quality, Newport simply didn’t show and for all their huff and puff Kempston struggled to create clear cut goal scoring chances, scoring both goals from set pieces with one being an absolute gift. The referee did well to control a game that, at times, threatened to boil over.
