IT WAS third time lucky for Overton United as they recorded their first win of their Hampshire Premier League season despite playing the whole of the second half with 10 men, as they won 3-1 at Hedge End Rangers.

The home side took the lead in the contest after 20 minutes, and then Kieran Fuller was dismissed on the stroke at half-time, after he received a second yellow card.

After the break, the 10 men of Overton dominated the game and got their reward on 75 minutes, as Johnnie Gurney levelled things.

Not content with this they kept going and took the lead 10 minutes later. Charlie Manning's free-kick was headed on by Richard Spiers, which the home goalie saved, but Ben Dillon put away the rebound.

Then with the final kick of the game, Overton added a third, as Dillion lobbed the home goalie from 35 yards out.

A delighted joint manager David Asker said: "I wanted the players to show me more commitment after the Infinity game and they certainly did this today. We are up and running now and looking forward to Monday's trip to Stockbridge next."
