The hosts were slow out of the blocks and fell behind as the visitors broke quickly from the first attack of the game when a deflected shot went in.

They were soon in the ascendancy and had their pressure rewarded when Elaine Ward fired them level from a short corner to make it all square at the interval.

After a half time grilling Letchworth came out strong and soon went ahead again from a short corner.

Haverhill responded as Kim Thomas set off on a mazy run, weaving past four defenders and then rounding the goalkeeper to equalise.

Captain Tina Bunch left the field injured after coming off worse in a clattering tackle and Letchworth had a goal disallowed as Haverhill held on for the draw.

They next host fifth placed East London on Saturday (December 1, 3pm).
