Moment of the match

21st February 1998 - Warrington Town 2 - 3 Holker Old Boys

The "Schmeichel spoon" incident

The score is 2-1 to Holker. The time is 3:44 p.m. Warrington have just got a goal back after conceeding two sloppy goals early on. The ball bounces towards the Holker keeper. He swings back his right foot and takes a mighty swipe at the ball but completely spoons the clearance and it drops to the Town striker who sprints twoards goal, only to be clumsily felled by the desperate keeper. A blatant penalty, tucked away neatly in front of the Bridge End. Warrington got the ball in the net again before half-time and thought they were 3-2 up but the goal was disallowed and they eventually lost 3-2.
