Potter's Bar Sport News

Lee O'Leary says all thoughts of Potters Bar Town celebrating their sensational and late 1-1 draw with Barnet long into the night were instantly cast out of the players' minds - as they are still determined to carry on their FA Cup adventure for a while longer.

Lee O'Leary described Potters Bar Town scoring in the 11th minute of injury time and earning an FA Cup replay against Barnet as the "best moment in my whole footballing career" - although not everybody in his family was in agreement.

They wanted to create memories and a goal 11 minutes into added-time of a pulsating FA Cup clash with Barnet will have done just that for the delirious Potters Bar Town fans.

It's a game that has captured the imagination of the public, not just in the two towns, but further afield too. One of those people is Potters Bar Edition's Neil Metcalfe who casts his eye over Potters Bar Town's FA Cup game with Barnet for his latest Mouth of the Tyne coloumn.
