Bostik North champions Hornchurch had to settle for a share of spoils after Cheshunt’s Ricky Sappleton netted a 90th minute equaliser.
The Urchins got off to a good start thanks to striker George Purcell but were eventually pegged back at Cheshunt Stadium last night.
The Bridge Avenue-based club made a handful of changes to the starting line-up with the most surprising being youngster Harry Palmer starting in goal with Sam Mott taking his place on the bench.
Purcell broke the deadlock in the 39th minute when he picked up a loose ball, cut inside and fired straight down the middle of the goal, beating keeper Aaron Bull.
In the dying stages of the match Sappleton headed home a free-kick to earn his side a point.
