A smart Scott Ryan finish saw Haughmond manage a great 1-1 draw at Boston United in the FA Cup second qualifying round.

The Midland Premier side were the massive underdogs against the National League North outfit at York Street, but were well worth the draw and were denied what appeared a stonewall penalty.

Jan Yeomans opened the scoring in the 54th minute for the hosts but Ryan replied late on, tucking the ball in from a tight angle.

Then, in the dying minutes, a Carl Rogers free-kick seemed to be handled – but the referee opted not to give a spot-kick.

This is the furthest Haughmond have ever got in the competition and the draw means the two sides will meet again on Tuesday night at Shrewsbury Sports Village (kick-off 7.45pm).
