Cray Valley (PM) 2 Beckenham Town 2

Tuesday 16th April 2013
Cray Valley (PM), nearing the end of their second season in the Kent League, stunned visitors Beckenham Town with two very late goals to salvage an unlikely point. The visitors looked set to take home all three points with a first-half own goal netted by Sam Gent and a super strike from Alfie Nunn. Then with time running out, Luke Tanner pulled a goal back for Cray in the 90th minute before Gent made amends for his earlier own goal with a dramatic equaliser deep into stoppage time. The Middle Park Avenue ground has been significant upgraded over the past couple of years with two new stands erected and floodlights installed.
