The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - AFC TELFORD UTD 2 BOS­TON UTD 1 By Richard Scott

ANTHONY DWYER’S stun­ning strike, wor­thy of win­ning any game of foot­ball, was enough to seal all three points for AFC Telford United at the New Bucks Head.

Af­ter a slug­gish start, the game burst into life on the 30-minute mark when a Ryan Wilson cor­ner found Bucks cap­tain Shane Sut­ton who scored his first goal for the club by fir­ing be­tween the legs of Bos­ton stop­per Ge­orge Wil­lis.

But Sut­ton scored at the other end just ten min­utes later, when he sent a deft header into the cor­ner of his own net – with what would have been a great goal at the right end.

The game’s main talk­ing point came bang on half-time when the ball fell to Dwyer.

From 35 yards out, Dwyer spot­ted Pil­grims goal­keeper Wil­lis off his line and pro­ceeded to smash the ball over his head.

Had that goal been in the Premier League, it would be shown on Match of the Day time and time again.

Dwyer’s strike turned out to be the win­ner, but it wasn’t for lack of try­ing from Telford who hit the bar through Sut­ton be­fore John Mars­den forced Wil­lis into a fine save.

Mars­den de­served to be on the score­sheet for his all-round per­for­mance, but it wasn’t to be as the Bucks saw it out.

STAR MAN: Anthony Dwyer (AFC Telford United) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
