Halesowen Town Come From 7-2 Down To Beat Nuneaton Borough 9-8

Imagine scoring five goals and being on the losing team.

Spare a thought for Nuneaton Borough youth player Luis Corcoran.

His side were 7-2 up. SEVEN - TWO.


However, Nuneaton Borough failed to hold onto their advantage eventually losing to Halesowen Town 9-8 in a thrilling FA Youth Cup tie.

The hosts led 4-1 at the break with Corcoran bagging a first-half brace. He then netted three more goals in the second-half but his goal-scoring heroics were ultimately in vain.

That's because the visitors scored three dramatic goals in the space of 10 minutes including a 96th minute winner to complete an almighty comeback.


Halesowen Town's Emlyn Tudgay did the business deep, deep into stoppage time.


Here's how the 17-goal thriller went down:
