LoNG Stratton will be disappointed with this 3-3 draw against St Andrews after throwing away a 3-0 lead.

There were very few chances in the first half, but after coming on as a substitute for the injured Graham Bartlett, Ricky Braddon scored with his first touch nodding in a far post cross.

LoNG Stratton will be disappointed with this 3-3 draw against St Andrews after throwing away a 3-0 lead.

There were very few chances in the first half, but after coming on as a substitute for the injured Graham Bartlett, Ricky Braddon scored with his first touch nodding in a far post cross.

The second half started with a bang with three goals in the first five minutes, Kelvin Willimott rounding the keeper to score Stratton's second and Carl Harwin putting them 3-0 up with a great free-kick into the top corner. But then St Andrews pulled one back within a minute.

Lack of communication then led to St Andrews getting a second and resulted in a sending off for Carl Harwin. Yet more communication problems led to the visitors' late equaliser by the unfortunate Lloyd Douglas, who nodded into his own net.

Stratton Glass and Windows MOM: Ricky Braddon.
