County League

Hanham Athletic 2

Stonehouse Town 2

ALEX LUMSDEN’S Stonehouse Town opened the County League curtain-raiser with a point on the road.

The Magpies nosed ahead on 25 minutes when Joe Martin fizzed in.

Hanham’s Jason Hallett missed a good chance to level a minute later and Mike Saddler had a goal disallowed for offside.

However, Hanham netted parity on 31minutes. Saddler broke into the box and was upended - Tom Welling made no mistake from the spot. Two minutes before the break the home side went 2-1 up - Liam Robson nodding home.

Stonehouse grabbed a point with 10 minutes to go when Bradley Moore arrowed in a free-kick. Moore fluffed his lines from a penalty chance with five minutes - blasting his shot over the bar.

Stonehouse welcome Lebeq United to Oldends Lane on Saturday, 3pm.
