​There were mixed fortunes for Biggleswade’s clubs in the FA Trophy last weekend.

​For Biggleswade FC, late goals from Adam Hunt and substitute Drew Phillips helped secure a first-ever FA Trophy win as they beat Stowmarket Town 3-1 at The Eyrie on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts totally dominated the opening exchanges, but it was the visitors who took a 12th minute lead when Scott Sloots turned home a low cross from the right with virtually their first attack of the game.

Pemi Aderoju levelled in first half stoppage time, but FC had to wait until seven minutes from time to get their noses in front before Phillips put the seal on FC's passage to the next round deep into injury time.
