Harrowby United 1 Desborough Town 1
Saturday, 31 December 2005
The Premier bottom two remain eight points apart after sharing the spoils at Harrowby Fields. The Arrows wasted the chances to pick up all three points with Boxing Day goal hero Steve Young the main culprit. He hit the woodwork from an eleventh minute spot kick awarded for a foul by Gary Clark and was denied twice more by the frame of the goal. Ar Tarn also hit the woodwork through Tom Mills. When Michael Byrne gave Ar Tarn a 79th minute lead with a shot through a crowded penalty area Harrowby looked set for another confidence denting defeat but within a minute a Rick Kimbell own goal had given them a hard earned point.
Harrowby: Ben Smith, Matt Hodgkin (Paul Chappell), Andy Baker, Mark Fardell, Lee Winters, Darren Elding, Mark Wilson, Alan Bradley, Ashley Stevens, Steve Young, Leigh Fox (Paul O'Rourke).
Desborough: Paul Beresford, Gary Clark, David Glass, Glyn Davies (Michael Byrne), Rick Kimbell, Pete Sneddon, Tom Mills, Mark Forbes, Gary Evans, Callum Noble, Greig McIlwain.
