OADBY START A BUSY WEEK IN DRAMATIC STYLE!!!! Club secretary Alan Lathwell reports...


The start of a very busy week with 3 away fixtures in the UCL Premier Division saw Oadby snatch a dramatic injury time win at Sargeants Lawn.

Unfortunate to be 2-0 down with 15 minutes to play The Poachers mounted a spirited comback to win the game 3-2 in injury time.

Goals from Ola Ayoola (75) with a towering header from a cross. Carlton Beardmore (79) found space in the box to find the bottom corner just inside the post to make it 2-2.

Late in the second half Oadby looked the more likely. Just moments before Gurprit Thandi made a jinking run inside the box only to shoot directly at the keeper.

With time running out Harry Allcock (90+1) found himself bundling throught he retreating Rothwell defence before unleasing a fierce strike which smashed off the underside of the bar and into the next to jubilant scenes from the travelling supporters, players and management team.

The Poachers are off the bottom of the league and will go in to the Leicester Nirvana game this Thursday with renewed belief.
