VIDEO: Haverhill Borough end Saffron Walden Town’s winning streak
THURLOW NUNN LEAGUE
Haverhill Borough 1 Saffron Walden Town 1
A 94th minute own goal earned Borough a draw and saw them become the first team this season to deny the Bloods an away victory in the league.
Walden went 1-0 up in the 41st minute when Graeme Turner headed on a throw-in for defender Chris Reid to power home a header.
The visitors, who top the table after just one defeat all season, were largely in control and had further chances to add to their tally, but were thwarted by ‘keeper Charlie Turner and poor finishing.
They were made to pay in the 94th minute when Ryan Weaver got on the end of a chipped ball into the box and mishit a shot that deflected off former Haverhill Rovers defender Ben Lawrence to wrong-foot ‘keeper Floyd Croll and roll into the net.
