Flint's introduction triggered an immediate urgency in Stratton's play. Just 41 seconds into the second half Stratton drew level, Flint playing a dangerous ball across the face of goal and the helpless Reepham defender putting into his own net. Flint went close twice more in the next eight minutes before Mark Whitmore fired Stratton into a deserved lead on 55 minutes. Soon after Reepham broke away and equalised triggering huge celebrations in the away contingent.
But that man Flint was going to have the final say as he capped a powerhouse 45-minute display with a fine goal in the 62nd minute, which proved to be the winner. Stratton Motor Company MoM: Stephen Blunt.
