Luton Town’s Andy Parry scored a quite magnificent goal as AFC Telford drew 1-1 against Grimsby Town in their Vanarama Conference clash on Saturday.

The on-loan utility player, who was named man of the match, picked up possession just inside the Mariners half and unleashed a 35-yard strike that flew into the net.

Striker Alex Wall made his Bristol Rovers debut in their 2-0 win over Welling, but was replaced at half time.

Boss Darrell Clarke told the club’s official website: “I wanted to freshen things up after Tuesday’s game and I thought Alex (Wall) had some good touches but is lacking match fitness.”

Meanwhile, Matt Robinson played his last game for Kidderminster Harriers, a 2-1 defeat at Altrincham, as he returns to Luton to fight for a first team place.

Before the game, Robinson tweeted: Last away trip with the lads, wanna thank the fans and the boys who’ve been fantastic the whole time I’ve been here.”

Midfielder Solomon Taiwo played 90 minutes and was booked as Dover Athletic enjoyed a surprise 2-1 win at Gateshead.

Striker Zane Banton scored for Hemel Hempstead Town as they won 2-1 at Truro City in the FA Trophy, before being replaced just before the hour mark, while winger Kynan Isaac was on target in Oxford City’s 6-1 romp over Lewes.

Forward Lee Angol came off the bench for Boreham Wood as they were hammered 4-0 by Concord Rangers in the same competition.

Defender Brett Longden made his Arlesey Town debut as they were beaten 2-0 by Hungerford Town in Southern League Premier Division.

Meanwhile, U18s duo Craig King and Isaac Galliford both had their first taste of senior football action at the weekend too.

Goalkeeper King played for Bromley and kept a clean sheet for his new side as they drew 0-0 at Tonbridge Angels in the FA Trophy.

Meanwhile, Gallford came on for the last half an hour to help Hitchin battle back to gain a late point against Frome Town in their 1-1 Southern League Premier Division draw.

Youth team manager, Paul Driver said: “The first thing Craig said when I spoke to him was that he had been in a proper football match and that’s exactly why it is vital for the youngsters to get these chances as they are great for their development.

“Isaac enjoyed his cameo for Hitchin too and will be involved with them on Tuesday against Biggleswade.”
