Linnets have to settle for a point after late leveller
by Tom Martin

Spennymoor Town 1 Burscough 1 BURSCOUGH'S last game of the season saw them throw away three points after conceding a last minute equaliser.

The team, who travelled down to Spennymoor Town with only the bare 11 with no substitutes, had to settle for a point as the finished off the season in 15th place.

The first half brought few chances for either side, with Spennymoor fielding an under-strength side as they had one eye on the midweek play off semi-final.

The second half picked up and Burscough took the lead in the 61st minute through Will Jones who got in between two defenders to head into an empty net following a superb floated cross from the right.

But the Linnets were denied victory when Spennymoor levelled in the last minute when the Burscough keeper spilled a Robert Briggs free kick, and Ian Ward pounced to head home from close range.
