Crosbie pleased as March Town United begin new era with 2-2 draw at Debenham LC

A LATE equaliser robbed March Town United of a win on Saturday - but Paul Crosbie said he was pleased to pick up his first point as manager.

The Hares shrugged off a tough pre-season to kick off their Thurlow Nunn First Division campaign with a 2-2 draw at Debenham LC.

Robbie Masters put March in front in the 18th minute but the Hornets equalised on the hour, with a free header from a corner.

Crosbie’s side were soon back in front, as Ash Spendelow’s 25-yard drive hit the crossbar and the goalkeeper on its way to the net.

But with just seven minutes left, March were denied the perfect start as the hosts found a second equaliser.

Crosbie said: “Yes, we conceded a late equaliser but to pick up a point on the road is very pleasing.”

The Hares host Newmarket Town at the GER on Tuesday (kick-off 7.45pm).
