Fight back wins away draw

The Isles of Scilly team fought back from a 2-0 deficit to draw 2-2 with Falmouth Town away yesterday. There will be a return fixture on the islands in the autumn. (Thanks to Steve Watt in the Radio Scilly studio for this information).
Falmouth Town has particular associations for me as it was the last ground at which I watched football with my father after he had retired to Cornwall. They were then at their peak and won the Rothmans Western League title three years in succession. However, the cost of travelling up country forced them back into the South-Western League (where Charlton are now scouting for players).
It's back to reality now for the Scilly players and the weekly fixture at the Garrison Field between the Woolpack Wanderers and the Garrison Gunners in the world's smallest football league. I'm not sure whose ahead at the moment as the website hadn't been updated when I last had a look.
