Enfield Town 1-1 East Thurrock United

Monday 31 August 2015
Ryman League Premier Division

Following an easing of the early afternoon’s torrential rain, the game was given the go-ahead by referee Ellis Clark at 2pm.

With just two minutes on the clock, the Towners had a fortunate escape when an underhit back-pass to Nathan McDonald was chased down by Harry Honesty. The forward clipped the ball wide of both keeper and the post, and the referee then waved away East Thurrock’s fervent penalty appeals after the two subsequently collided.

The Towners rallied and took the lead on 8 minutes. Following some good build-up play on the left wing, Nathan Livings knocked a pass to Dernell Wynter on the edge of the box, the forward shifted the ball onto his right foot and then curled a shot past Lidakevicius in the Rocks’ goal.

FC United of Manchester 3-3 Curzon Ashton FC

Monday 31 August 2015
National League North

FC United fought back from 3-1 down with four minutes to go to draw a six goal thriller with Curzon Ashton on Bank Holiday Monday in front of 3,830 noisy supporters at Broadhurst Park.

The out of sorts Reds were 2-0 down at halftime but Luke Ashworth pulled one back just before the hour mark. Any chance of a salvaging a draw looked to be dead and buried in the 85th minute though as Matthew Warburton made it 3-1 to the visitors.

However, FC United responded by staging an incredible late fightback to salvage a point. The players delivered the type of rescue act that has become synonymous with the club over the last few years but this was the first one of its kind at Broadhurst Park. Possibly the first of many to come.
