Hinckley AFC 2 - 2 Studley
A last minute equaliser from Studley meant Atletico registered anther score draw, as the Bees cancelled out Matt Jelf's debut goal and a Jordan Wilson neat finish.

Under 18 players George Warren and Matt Jelfs were making their first starts this season, Warren replacing Adam Harrison in goal as he has been recalled from his loan by Bedworth. The game itself was largely uneventful for long periods as both sides cancelled each other out. The first real chance came for Hinckley on 25 minutes when Jordan Wilson was brought down just outside the area, Matt Jelfs lined up the free kick and as the ball struck the wall took a wicked deflection dropping over the keeper into the back of the net, the young defender scoring his first senior goal for the club.

The start of the second half was much the same, with little goal mouth action. Just after the hour though AFC produced the move of the match which got the goal it deserved. Jean Dakouri broke up a Studley attack on the edge of his own box, and drove forward into the opposition half, played a neat one two with Sam Belcher as he moved down the left, then passed back to Belcher just outside the area, who immediately released Wilson into the area who coolly finished underneath the keeper as he came out of his goal. An hour gone and AFC were looking comfortable even though not really threatening. Wilson was again released with the chance to make it 3, but this time Tom Hayward got a touch to the ball, and then Belcher saw his effort blocked on way to goal. Those chances to kill off the game would be rued with 10 minutes remaining as a great run from Dale Edwards on the Studley left saw the ball crossed central to the edge of the AFC area and Joe Adams struck a superb volley into the top left corner giving Warren no chance. Studley now sensing they could get something from the game threw everything forward, and they were rewarded in injury time as another good run from Edwards down the left saw him curl the ball goalwards, with Warren behind his effort Reece Taylor-Randle stole in on the goal line to deflect the ball past the stranded keeper equalising the scores with virtually the last touch of the match.
