The one bright spark for Cottesmore Amateurs this season has been striker Andrea Fontoura and on Saturday he scored two more goals but it was not enough to earn the Rutland side victory in the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division as they went down 4-2 at home to Blaby & Whetstone Athletic Reserves.

The loss is Cottesmore’s ninth in a row and means they are now joint bottom of the league with just five points, and St Andrews, who are below on goal difference, have four games in hand to get themselves out of trouble.
