Erith Town 3, Guernsey FC 4 (after extra-time)
Saturday 17th November 2012, 9:52PM GMT.
GUERNSEY FC produced an astonishing comeback to knock Kent League team Erith Town out of the FA Vase at the second round stage in an eventful.
GFC fell 3-0 behind but the match was marred by a horrific injury to midfielder Ryan-Zico Black, who suffered a double leg break in the first half, an incident for which Erith’s Tyrus Gordon was sent off.
But with just 11min. remaining and GFC looking down and out, they hit back with goals from Jacques Isabelle, Alex Le Prevost and a last-gasp stoppage time leveller from Dave Rihoy to force extra-time.
And in the first period, Ross Allen completed the incredible turnaround, which puts GFC into the draw for the last-64, to take place on Monday.
