More news, no ads


Newbury needed a late equaliser to salvage a point with Chinnor in their Hellenic League clash on Saturday

NEWBURY saw lowly Chinnor wipe out a 3-1 deficit before the visitors had to come from behind to snatch a late Hellenic League point from a 4-4 draw.

But two goals from Craig Johnson and another from Ryan Davis left Newbury chasing the game and they needed a late equaliser from Thorp to salvage a point.
