Raunds Town 2 Deeping Rangers 2
Saturday, 05 April 2008
Raunds twice led against the outgoing champions, but the point was sufficient to seal their status for next season.
Josh Davis gave the Shopmates a first minute lead after a Cavell Jarvis shot was parried by Danny Bircham but Rangers top scorer Danny Matson equalised after 18 minutes.
Davis gave Raunds the lead for a second time from a Jarvis pull back after 26 minutes, and Rangers were then reduced to ten men by Matson's dismissal for a second caution.
Raunds were pegged back again five minutes into the second half, Michael Stevenson earning Deeping their point with a penalty.
Raunds: Phil Turner, Dane Ridgway, Jamie Russell, Gavin Fitzgerald, David Coales, Ben Singleton (Danny Frid), Ricky Chambers (Marcus Wharton), Callum Ridgway, Cavell Jarvis, James Willmott, Josh Davis (Scott Manning).
Deeping: Danny Bircham, Mark Kingston, Andy Ellis, Michael Stevenson, Matt Porter, Tuncay Korkmaz, Dave Burton-Jones (Richard Thompson), Adam Weston, Lee Ellison, Sam Bettinson, Danny Matson.
