Winslow United came agonisingly close to recording their first home league win of the season when they were denied by a 97th minute goal against Chesham United Reserves on Saturday.

United dominated large periods of the game and led after just six minutes when Man of the Match Tyler Penman converted Ryan Freshwater’s cross, but Chesham scored against the run of play to make it 1-1 at the break.

The second half was finely-balanced with both sides having chances, but it was Winslow who appeared to have won it when Michael Reed headed home four minutes into added time, only for Reece Cameron to snatch a dramatic equaliser three minutes later and deny United only their second win of the season.

The result keeps Winslow bottom of South Midlands League Division One.

Afterwards, Winslow manager Scott Reynolds said: “We take the point and move on. I felt we controlled the game in the first half and should have had more than the one goal.

“However, the second half was a different story, they came out and pegged us back early on. We did well not to concede a second goal to be honest as they had some good chances.

“I felt in the last 20 minutes we got back into it and became the better side - we passed the ball well and looked dangerous.

“I was so pleased for Reedy with what should have been the winning goal in the 94th minute, but unfortunately we all thought the job was done and switched off for a further three minutes in which the found the last gasp equaliser.”
