Late drama as Vets deny London Turkish Masters

A dramatic end to this close fought contest saw Waltham Forest become the first team to deny London Turkish Masters victory this season.

Masters started strongly and opened the scoring on 9 minutes when Ali scrambled the ball home.

Forest defended well for the rest of the half in the face of a strong wind and prevented the visitors from adding to their score, but did little to threaten at the other end.

After the break Forest had more possession as the wind was now at their backs and on 56 minutes Abs Asname won the ball on the left and his low cross was met by Suat Demirel to level the scores.

Both sides battled for the win and both defences stood firm and it looked as if 1-1 would be the result, but as stoppage time started Zurnaci hit a high cross shot from the right which crept in at the angle of the far post to seemingly take Masters to the top of the table.

Amazingly Forest were not distracted by the celebrations on the touchline and straight from the restart fed the ball forward and Unal Kuksal was on hand to stab home a well deserved equaliser.

Waltham Forest Veterans are without a game next Sunday, but return to action on 25th January when they entertain Winchmore Hill at Wadham Lodge Astroturf, kick-off 12.00.

Elsewhere, the Under 16s lost 2-0 to Clapton.
