MARK Boucker marked his debut for Tenbury Athletic with a goal in an outstanding 3-2 win at high-flying Burghill in Herefordshire Sunday League Division One North.
Athletic led 3-0 before surviving a late fightback to end promotion-chasing Burghill’s long unbeaten run.
Boucker, a familiar face in Tenbury Town’s Saturday league team, set up Athletic’s opener, flicking on the ball for Dan Jara to score.
Jack Farrar doubled Athletic’s advantage before Boucker netted his maiden goal for the visitors.
Marksman Carl Price netted twice for in-form Newcastle in their 3-2 home victory over Radnor Valley in Mid Wales League (South).
John Goodridge’s side made it five wins from six matches but they had to work hard for their triumph.
The visitors made the better start before Price put Newcastle ahead after his initial shot had been blocked.
Matt Malley headed a second from Scot Oxford’s cross but Radnor soon levelled. Price restored Newcastle’s two-goal advantage after racing on to Oxford's through-ball for his 18th goal of the campaign.
Radnor reduced arrears with a late consolation effort.
