WELWYN Garden City staged one of the finest fightbacks seen at Herns Lane for some time to come from 2-0 behind to defeat Tring Athletic 3-2 yesterday.

The visitors were 1-0 up after only 40 seconds on Saturday when Mark Burfoot side-footed home after good work down the right from winger Andy Mullins.

Del Deanus' side then went on to dominate Tring for the remainder of the game, but found themselves 2-0 down when Ashley Addison scored a superb overhead-kick only a minute in the second half.

The introduction of Craig Tomkins then turned the game.

He scored on 73 minutes with a well-taken effort, and then five minutes later striker Stuart Blackburne hit the net to make it 2-2.

The superb comeback win was secured when Adam Wallace, making his full debut, crashed a header home in stoppage time for a deserved three Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division points.

The desire and fight of the players was something that hasn't been seen at Herns Lane for some time, and the future is looking bright under the management of joint bosses Deanus and Steve Newing.
