Lions edged through to the next round of the League Trophy with a penalty shoot-out victory over Harpenden Town.
Facing higher league opponents for the second time in a week, Lions again showed they hold no fear and despite falling behind after the break, they rallied to put in a superb second half performance and claim the draw when Mannie teed up Furman to score from close range.
With no extra time in this competition, the game went straight to spot kicks with Bolle, Rubin, Furman all netting while Harpin in the Lions goal and the crossbar denied Harpenden. It was left to Edwards to score the fourth and decisive kick for Lions and send us through to the next round where we face familiar opponents in Bovingdon, who now play in SSMFL Division Two.
