Blackstones picked up another point in the UCL Division One with a 1-1 draw at Buckingham Town.

It was Buckingham Town’s first point of the season having already been beaten by Stones’ local rivals Bourne Town and Oakham United

After a goal-less first half Stones went behind to a strike by Neil Walton in the 63rd minute and the hosts looked to be heading for victory but Antonio Dello Russo ensured Blackstones would return home with a share of the points when he levelled the scores with eight minutes remaining Raunds Town at Lincoln Road, kick-off 3pm.

Blackstones: Lee Crockett, Matt Simpson, Ryan Birtles, Kieran Arthur, Jack Salt, Giuliano Staffieri, Nicky Butler, Dan Evans, Sam Strange, Jones De Sousa, Addie Staffieri
