There was very little to choose between both these old rivals at a sun-kissed Creek on Saturday.

Ben John produced a fine save in the 7th minute, palming over a header from Sam Hedges and the Farm keeper had to be alert once more after 15 minutes to save from Steve Murray after he’d blocked a Jamie Turner clearance and shot goalwards.

The best chance of the half came after 25 minutes when Jordan Rogers down the Farm right produced a great bit of skill to control the ball and switch an arrowed pass into the path of Jordan Metters steaming down the left. Metters held the ball up, cut inside the right back and sent in a curling shot from the edge of the area that just missed the far upright.

Manor Farm took the lead in the 52nd minute when Owen Howe flicked the ball on for Lewis Bamford who was brought down as he dribbled into the penalty box. Howe stepped up to slam home powerfully from the spot.

Street almost pulled one back immediately when a looping header by Harry Foster came back off the woodwork. The visitors deservedly pulled level in the 65th minute when Foster then hit a firm drive across Ben John from the right.

Both sides had chances to win the game – Owen Howe had an effort blocked by goalkeeper Liam Kingston in the 73rd minute and Jamie Short lifted the ball over the bar for Street when put through in the 88th.

In the end 1-1 was about the right result.
