A DEPLETED Wallington side travelled to Percy Main Amateurs on Saturday and returned with a well-earned point following a 1-1 draw.

Assistant manager Trevor Baston was the side’s only substitute, and he was forced into action after five minutes, when Brad Richardson went off injured in the Northern Alliance Premier Division encounter.

Five minutes later, Jonny Edwards suffered an injury, and the Greens played the remaining 80 minutes with 10 men in scorching temperatures. After going a goal behind, John Paxton scored Wallington’s equaliser - his 13th of the season.
