FOOTBALL: Allum penalty miss so costly for Wallingford
North Berks League: Chris Allum’s missed penalty proved crucial for Wallingford Athletic as they fell to a 4-3 defeat at the hands of last season’s Division 1 champions Lambourn Sports.
Wallingford looked to be cruising to victory when a Sam Elkins header and an Allum strike put them 2-0 ahead inside 15 minutes.
And when a Lambourn defender handled inside his area on the half-hour mark, Allum had a golden opportunity to make it 3-0.
But his spot-kick was saved by Lambourn keeper Richard Stewart – and this proved to be the turning point of the game.
Jason Brizzell’s double brought the sides level, and although Elkins restored Wallingford’s lead, Adrian Mooney levelled again.
Wallingford’s Adam Summers then saw red for a second booking, and Brizzell completed his hat-trick late on to seal a superb fightback.

AFC Wallingford completed a cup double over Abingdon Town with a hard-earned 3-1 victory in the preliminary round of the Direct Sports Supplementary Cup.
Incredibly, this was the fourth time the two teams had met at the Hithercroft this season, Wallingford winning their League Cup clash.
The home side took the lead after 20 minutes through Abdouli Taha, who netted with a left-foot shot.
Five minutes later, the home side extended their lead through Aaron Baker following a free-kick.
The visitors snatched a fortunate goal back just before half-time, when Andy Hough floated in what looked like a cross from the right which deceived keeper John Shea and looped into the far corner of the net.
After a scrappy second half, Wallingford made the game safe in injury time when Dauda Fofanah skipped past a couple of defenders and fed Zinzee Taha, who set up Andy Styles to score.
