Stirring fight by Heanor Reserves

Central Midlands League

Reserve Supreme Division

Graham St Prims Res 3

Heanor Town Res 3

HEANOR Town Reserves came back from the dead to claim their first point in four games.

The Lions fell behind on 15 minutes when Sam Collins scored.

They began to get worse when Rob Fretwell increased the gap eight minutes later.

And when Guy Cooper made in three inside the first half hour Heanor looked to be humbling for their second successive big defeat.

But when Dan Storer was introduced to the game the Lions started to hit back.

It was Storer who gave the team hope on the hour mark with his first goal of the game, and his second followed ten minutes later.


Heanor now had their tails up and began to believe they could get something out of the game, and this was duly achieved when Kevin Rowles scored to restore parity to the game and secure a point.

This Saturday, Heanor Town Reserves are in Derbyshire County FA Divisional Cup second round action with a home game against Mickleover Sports Reserves.

Kick-off is 3pm.
