Bicester men’s 2nd slipped dangerously close to the MBBO Division 5 relegation zone after crashing to a 4-1 defeat at home to Eastcote 5th.

The hosts started strongly, but had only a strike on half-time from captain James Pilgrim – his tenth of the season – to show for their efforts.

And they paid the price after the break as Eastcote scored four unanswered goals, levelling within five minutes of the restart.

But a second-half strike from Andy Kaye earned Bicester a share of the spoils.
