Last-Gasp Disappointment!

A `sickener` doesn`t do justice to how all connected with the young....

...Doughboys felt after losing to a free-kick 5 minutes into injury-time against ground tenants AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

The home side led at the break, thanks to a lovely glancing header by the always impressive young defender Shane Oslar.

But, despite warnings of not taking the foot of the gas at the break, the `visitors` fought back to lead 2-1.

Another under-16 youngster Lewis Fisher scored his first senior goal to pull the Doughboys back on level terms with only a few minutes left of normal time.

However, a dubious free-kick was awarded just outside the area - a foul seen only by the referee - and Matty Smith somehow managed to beat keeper Justin Greatorex, who could only parry the ball into the roof of the net.

Justin Greatorex; Tom Middleton, Jake Dixon, Kieran Westbury, Harry Gooderham-Doherty, Shane Oslar, Joe Wenham, Macauley Copping, Reece Brown, Ryan Betts, Zak Ward: Subs: Michael Allen, Lewis Fisher, Kallan Yearwood, Jake McShannon, Bradley Evans.
