Dylan Adjei-Hersey notched the fifth goal of his extended loan spell with Merstham in a dramatic finish on Saturday.
Visitors East Thurrock United had a two-goal advantage going into the closing stages of the Isthmian Premier fixture, but the young Wimbledon winger had a big say in the outcome.
Firstly, Adjei-Hersey (pictured) provided an 89th minute assist from a free-kick to pull a goal back. Then, in the final minute of regulation time, he headed home from close range at the far post to help earn the hosts a point. Adjei-Hersey even went close to snatching a late winner in time added on.
Defender Jack Currie helped set up Eastbourne Borough’s opener, as they went on to beat Tiverton Town 2-1 at Priory Lane to make progress in the FA Trophy.
Corie Andrews came off three minutes into time added on in Aldershot Town’s third win in a row, a 1-0 victory at King’s Lynn Town in the National League. Fellow striker Aaron Cosgrave was also substituted deep into time added on, as Dover Athetic came away with a point from their one-all draw at Yeovil Town.
Also in the Isthmian Premier, midfielders Elliott Bolton and Alfie Bendle both started in Corinthian Casuals' goalless draw with Brightlingsea Regent. The former also picked up a second half yellow card, before being substituted two minutes from time. Defender Isaac Ogundere made a late appearance coming off the bench three minutes from time, in Leatherhead’s 3-3 draw at Carshalton Athletic.
Our next batch of potential professionals returned to winning ways in the Youth Alliance South East on Saturday. James Oliver-Pearce’s AFC Wimbledon Under-18s won 2-0 away to Luton Town, with both goals scored in the first half by the league leaders.
