With both sides turning out scratch sides it was always going to be a physically hard test for both sets of players.

Will Allen curled in a free kick from 20 yards to give Nettleham the lead before the break.

Callum Gray coolly slotted home the second for the Sky Blues who were now in cruise control.

Nettleham’s Jack Lidgett had to go off injured and with no substitute available, Fishtoft took full advantage and clawed back two goals to make the final score 2-2.

There was one controversial moment late on when it seemed for all the world Nettleham had scored but the referee deemed the ball had not crossed the line.

Nettleham’s shot tally of 21 was far superior to the opposition’s nine.

However only two were converted so the Nettleham youngsters had to settle for a point.
