Stotfold 2 Holbeach United 2
Saturday, 02 January 2010
Liam Nimmo's brace earned the Tigers a point from their long trip south in the only Premier Division match to beat the wintry weather.
The Eagles took a 22nd minute lead through Ryan Aldrin, who collected a crossfield pass from Jamie Osborne and cut in from the right to slot home.
Nimmo levelled for Holbeach five minutes later, controling a Jason Sedlan cross from the right with his first touch and beating Brad Gillham with his second.
By the break Stotfold were back in front through Leon Gutzmore's effort seven minutes before the interval, the striker running through the visiting defence before firing past James Doughty to the keeper's left.
The only goal of an end to end second half saw Nimmo haul Holbeach on terms after 72 minutes, converting a left wing cross from Alex Beck from close range to take his season's goal tally to fifteen.
