Irchester United 1 Burton Park Wanderers 1
Saturday, 09 February 2008
The bottom two in Division One played out an Alfred Street stalemate.
The Romans played well in the first half but found openings hard to create.
When Pete Callan gave Burton the lead a minute before the break they looked set to avenge an opening day defeat by the Romans, but Irchester snatched a point with a 76th minute equaliser from Jason Vaughan, who netted from 25 yards.
Both sides had chances to snatch victory in the closing stages.
Irchester: Warren Courtney, Chris Gell, Dave Maguire, Neil Garrett, Gary Cotter (Mark Dudley), Jason Vaughan, Michael Betts, Craig Sturgess, Ben Hyams, Gary Marks, Dan Richardson (Sean Hamblin).
Burton: Liam Fox, Jamie Poole, Gary Butcher, Adam Fitzjohn, Marco Giacobbe (Steve Ratledge), Pete Callan, Grant Mawby, Gary Owen, Mike Houghton, Darren Halfyard, Dallie Mandson (Luke McIlroy).
