AYLESBURY ADL title favourites Bucks CC lost 3-1 to South Reading at Newport Pagnell FC on Saturday, a second final defeat in three years for the unlucky side.

The title chasers suffered a rare defeat on penalties the previous week but were out of the blocks in fantastic style with Ian Pierce opening the scoring after just 42 seconds in Newport Pagnell.

However, dreams of atoning for 2010’s final defeat were dashed during a 10-minute blip just before half-time when South Reading scored three quick goals.
