ANDOVER New Street came from behind to win their north Hampshire derby 4-2 at Tadley Calleva.

The visitors had the first chance as a cross from Jazz Beavis found Claudio Herbert in the box but the header was straight at goalkeeper Freddie Gee, who then fisted clear a long range free-kick from Luke Neller.

Despite this bright opening after just 11 minutes Cameron George gave Tadley the lead.

The home side nearly doubled their advantage, as George chipped New Street goalie George Baxter, but somehow the goalie got back and clawed the ball off the line.

The second half started with New Street equalising as Zac Hine lashed a loose ball into the roof of the net.

The same player then had a 25-yard effort acrobatically tipped over the bar.

Just past the hour make and Tadley took the lead against as George netted his second of the game.

Baxter then fisted away a thunderbolt from Sam Hamilton, before the scores were level again on the 75 minutes with a Shane Lock goal.

The striker cut in from the left hand side of the area before firing across and past Gee and inside the far post.

Home skipper Shaun Dallimore brought out a fine reflex save from Baxter following a corner.

Callum Sweeney’s pass sent substitute Kylan Lewis away on the left and a superb finish from Lewis, high in to the far corner made it 3-2 with four minutes left.

Rather than hanging on Street went forward again as normal time moved in to stoppage time with Herbert’s speed taking him clear and in to the area where he was bought down by Freddie Gee.

Penalty, little protest but no other punishment for the goalkeeper, and Herbert’s assured spot kick was the icing on the cake for the New Street as they won 4-2.

After the game a delighted manager John Smith said: "I am really pleased with the win the way we came back. This season has very much been a learning curve and we are now getting to grips with this league.

"I think Max Allen and Jamie Coleman played really well in the centre of defence and George Baxter is playing well after coming back from injury."

Last Saturday, New Street lost at home to Bournemouth 3-1 with Herbert a recent signing from Hartley getting their only goal.

This weekend, New Street have a tough trip to high flying Portland United.
