ROBINS SOAR INTO SOUTHERN LEAGUE PLAY-OFFS
Evesham United snatched a dramatic 3-2 victory on the final day of the season over champions AFC Totton.
The visitors were superb in the first half, taking a 2-0 lead through goals from Tommy WRIGHT and Marcus DAY, and went into the break even further ahead with Evesham’s Alfie Dunn receiving a straight red card.
The second half could not have been more different. Despite the numerical disadvantage, the hosts pulled a goal back from the spot through Kyle BELMONTE, and with the crowd at their back BELMONTE pulled the Robins level with his second spot-kick.
There was still one final twist, with home captain Charles WISE bundling home from a corner in stoppage time to secure Evesham’s play-off berth.
