Oldham • August 3

STOCKPORT’S Jamie Quinn, his century fast approaching, failed to hear the final bell for only the third time in his long career when he lost to Kane Gardner at the Leisure Centre.

Manchester’s Gardner floored him in a neutral corner with a left to the body, sufficient reason for referee Jamie Kirkpatrick to wave it off 35 seconds shy of the halfway point in a scheduled six despite “Quinny” having regained his feet.

Mr Kirkpatrick refereed two further contests, the first seeing Manchester-based Brazilian Diego Costa, back after 17 months on the sidelines, halt Derby’s Nathan Junor after just one minute 53 seconds of a scheduled four. Costa dropped Junor with a right cross and left him too unsteady to continue.
