After two hard-fought away wins, Wrington relished the visit of unbeaten Churchill Club 70 to The Rec.

As you would expect from a local derby, it was a hard fought close encounter but with plenty of good football even if clear chances were hard to come by.

Churchill started brightly and it needed Dean Rix and Nick Curtis, who are forging a solid defensive partnership, to be at their best to keep them at bay.

However, Wrington grew into the game and playing out from the back produced some good football of their own with Louis Rouvais and Mickey Edmunds prominent.

It was Churchill who struck first and the home side will be disappointed with the soft nature of the goal, but extremely well taken by Henzel.

Against the elements, Wrington held their own in the second half and it took two fine saves from James Williams to keep the home side in the game.

With time ticking away, a long throw rebounded to Lucas whose cross somehow found its way to Moore who jubilantly swept in the equaliser.

Referee Rob Hooper also deserves a mention as he stepped in at the last minute and had a superb game.
