WHITCHURCH United came back from 2-0 down to share a six-goal thriller with Downton last Saturday.

The Jam Boys' slow start cost them two goals scored by TJ Moseley and Nathan Stott.

The home side woke up and hit back as recent new signing Tom Hogan helped himself to a brace to take the sides in at the break level at 2-2.

After the interval, Whitchurch took the lead thanks to a superb free-kick from Aaron Randall which took a deflection on its way into the net.

At that point it looked like the Jam Boys would make it five league wins on the trot.

However, they had to end up settling for a point after the visitors were awarded a late penalty, which Moseley converted.

Whitchurch manager Glyn Cherrett said: "We were without our goalkeeper Josh Cotton due to injury, so Damian Hack went in goal and was not at fault for any of the goals.

"We came out on our heels and paid the price as we were 2-0 down. We then led 3-2 and the decision for the penalty was shocking."

On Tuesday night, Whitchurch were due to play at Laverstock and Ford, but the game was postponed.

This Saturday, Whitchurch, 14th in the Wessex League Division One table are away at Verwood, who are six places above them.

The sides clashed on the opening day of the season with Verwood winning it 1-0.

The Jam Boys next home game is on Saturday March 23, when East Cowes Vics will visit.
