EAST MEN’S CONFERENCE: Harleston Magpies conceded a goal in the last minute of their final home game of the season to draw 4-4 against Bromley and Beckenham.

In a pulsating clash Magpies led 2-0 at half-time, conceded three goals to be losing 3-2, regained the lead and then conceded again at the death. With Sevenoaks losing at Old Loughtonians and St Albans also losing, Magpies are virtually sure of their place in National League for next season. St Albans would need to win both their remaining games, while their rivals lost theirs with a large goal difference being overturned, to edge Magpies out.

Stuart Leate gave Magpies an early lead on Sunday, with Gareth Furlong’s short corner strike stretching their advantage. After the visitors had turned the game on its head Furlong produced two more short corner goals to make it 4-3, before Bromley had the final say.
