John Sands proved Bury Town’s hero on Saturday after his injury time strike secured a narrow 3-2 win away at Lewes.

The visitors had found themselves with a two-goal advantage at the break courtesy of Evan Key’s 28th minute opener and Craig Parker’s 33rd minute penalty, before Lewes struck back through Steve Brinkhurst after 52 minutes and Callum Dunne with 13 minutes remaining.

However, with the game looking destined for a draw, Sands struck in the 93rd minute to snatch all three points for Richard Wilkins’ side.

Elsewhere in the cricket, Bury St Edmunds continue to endure a torrid start to their East Anglian Premier League campaign following a second consecutive defeat.

Following a 191 run defeat to Vauxhall Mallards in their opening game. Bury struggled again on Saturday slipping to a six wicket defeat at home to last year’s champions Swardeston.

After being put into bat, Bury were bowled all out for 189 with only Justin Bishop (96) and Toby Adams (37) surpassing 20, as Swardeston eased to success with Jonathan Sole (95) and Callum Taylor (48no) impressing, leaving Bury bottom of the league.
