TWO goals in the last seven minutes cost Calne Town an impressive home win over Toolstation League Premier Division title contenders Bristol Manor Farm on Saturday.

Both sides played their part in a superb 4-4 thriller, but it was the Lilywhites who would have felt the more disappointed at the final whistle having seemed destined for victory minutes earlier.

James Lee scored from close in on 83 minutes and Dan King bundled in an own goal with three minutes left, to give the visitors an unlikely share of the points.

The Lilywhites had got on the scoreboard first with eight minutes played, when James Lye launched himself at a cross and headed past Lee Ballard to make it 1-0.

Lye doubled the lead three minutes later when he latched onto a through ball and smacked his shot into the net from 18 yards.

The goal fired Manor Farm into action and they began to exert sustained pressure on the home side.

Just after the half hour, Luke Clarke cut free on the left flank, beat his man and crashed the ball past Jason Grubb to make it 2-1.

It was back to square one just four minutes later as Calne did not deal with a ball played into the box, and Clarke cracked in his second.

Five minutes before the break, King scored the best goal of the game. The 17-year-old received the ball on the left, coasted past two defenders and drilled the ball into the top corner for a stunning solo effort.

And the home side looked to have three points in the bag five minutes later, when Ballard dropped a cross and Lye stabbed in the loose ball.

But Manor Farm kept their belief and the reward came as Lee converted Ben Hiscox’s header across goal, before King knocked in the late own goal to bring Manor Farm level.

Lilywhites boss Robbie Lardner said: “We were two goals up twice and when you look at that, that’s disappointing.

“But they are a hard-working team, they have got a terrific spirit and they never gave up.”
