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.

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, midfielder Elliott Bolton 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.
