The final game of the season proved to be a battle from first whistle to last, writes Alec Latham.

Both teams contributed much to an enthralling contest.

Ben Scrivens, Thomas West and Glen Sinker worked their usual magic keeping Bradninch at bay whilst Cole Monaghan, Finlay Morgan and Scott DeGruchy fought hard to keep possession of the ball.

Ben Latham along with Ollie Jones pushed forward after the visitors struck the games first goal.

Jones levelled matters when he broke free from his marker and ran half the length of the pitch before tucking the ball beyond the keeper.

After the break Raiders keeper Isaac James made some fine saves whilst Scott Gibson and Will Lorkin were prominent.

The winner came from a late corner that consigned Raiders to a narrow defeat.

Ollie Jones was named the Raiders Man of the Match.
