Potters Bar Town sit seventh in the Southern League Division One Central following Saturday's goalless draw at home to Aylesbury United.
Prior to the game, 13-year-old Bar season ticket holder Joe Pearce walked out with the team as mascot.
The teenager has a rare genetic condition called PACS1 Syndrome of which just 30 cases have been identified worldwide.
Joe was mascot for the Scholars ahead of their goalless draw with Aylesbury United on a day in which the club raised money for the Potters Bar Children with Special Needs Group, of which he is a member [another report on this to follow].
The hosts started the game well and went close to opening the scoring as Ashley Nathaniel-George cut in from the left and hit a low shot that the keeper scrambled behind.
The game soon settled down into an even exchange in the midfield.
Bar had their chances as Sean Grace headed over and Nathaniel-George saw his shot deflected off target, while Max Holland went close with another shot.
It was not all one-way traffic as the visitors looked for a breakthough and were denied twice by keeper Ravan Constable.
After the break Chris Doyle tried his luck from his own half as the United keeper came out to clear and left his goal open, but the attempt just missed the target.
Carl McCluskey then had an effort cleared off the line.
Lamar Simpson and Casey were both denied as Bar were unable to find the net, while at the other end Constable stood firm to ensure a clean sheet.
Potters Bar’s league game at Barton Rovers [Tuesday] was postponed due to a frozen pitch.
