Dev XI come back to draw at Honor End Lane

By John Anderson

Useful work-out against old rivals

Holmer took a first half lead through Matt Hatt, but passed up lot of chances to extend their lead. With multiple half-time substitutions from both sides, the tide turned and Prestwood (who, these days, play in The Premier Division of The Aylesbury and District League) scored three goals in 25 minutes. But Holmer forced their way back and Ryan Williams pick up a loose ball on the edge of the home penalty-area, evading of couple of challenges before finding the corner of the net. Paul Nicholls then appeared to have brought The Greens level. But an inordinately late flag by a home linesman, who must have been asleep, eventually persuaded the Referee to correctly disallow the goal. But Holmer kept up the pressure, and Louis Parker-Steele evened the scores up.
