Hatters striker Zane Banton scored for Hemel Hempstead Town during their incredible 7-4 FA Trophy defeat at Eastbourne Borough on Saturday.

Trailing 3-0 after 20 minutes, Banton was on target in the second half to make it 3-3 and while the Tudors went ahead with 18 minutes to go, four late goals won it for the hosts.

On his addition to the Hemel ranks, Town boss Dean Brennan said: “I’ve always liked Zane and I’m a big admirer of his work ethic – he’s got good quality and a good turn of foot.

“He’s a real team player who makes good sacrifices for the team, and is a good option for us.

“Stilly (John Still) let him come here to get some more experience, and we are grateful for that. It’s good for Zane as well because, despite being a young lad, he’s fairly experienced at this level.

“He’s got a great attitude and has got a real chance of making it as a top footballer.”

Meanwhile, Matt Robinson played 90 minutes for Woking as they won 2-1 at Boreham Wood in the same competition.
