Andy Westwell’s side had to settle for a share of the spoils from their trip to Vickerstown.

They started brightly with good early running by Tom Morgan, Alex Porter and Andy Roberts setting up chances which resulted in eight attempts on goal in the first seven minutes.

Bizarrely goalkeeper Adam Stone opened the scoring when a free-kick from just outside his own penalty area saw his punt upfield beat everyone and bounced over the home keeper to score.

However, Vickerstown equalised with a scrappy goal midway through the second half to get a point despite Porter watching a shot cleared off the goal-line.
