ST PETER'S picked up their first victory of the season with a fairly comfortable win at Debden Sports on Saturday.

Managers Dave Whitehead and Kevin Barnes had to ring the changes once again with numerous players missing for various reasons.

The patched up side weathered the early pressure and took control thanks to goals from Eames and James Lee.

A second half penalty from Eames took the fight out of the Debden side although they scored a penalty of their own before Billy Smith concluded the scoring.

l On Wednesday evening the Saints had to come from behind to pick up their first point of the season with Jack Greaney coming off the bench to score the equaliser in a 1-1 draw against Kimpton Rovers.

Earlier goalkeeper Billy Barnes had kept his side in the match with two excellent saves although overall the Saints deserved a share of the spoils.

l Prior to these two fixtures the Sains had commenced the season with three defeats.

On the opening day of the campaign a useful Belstone side ran out 2-0 winners at Lemsford.

A 3-2 defeat followed days later when Harpenden Rovers snatched a late winner in a game the Saints deserved something from. Liam Heffer and Dean Jones were on target for the Saints.

Last Saturday, a trip to Letchworth GC Eagles brought about defeat number three in a game the Saints never looked capable of winning, especially after a very poor opening half hour in which the home side scored the only goal of the match.
