Step up Emlyn Tudgay, the striker scored twice in added time, the later goal coming in the 96th minute.

The Liberty Way stadium was left in shock as the away side got the all-important victory in the second round of qualification for the FA Youth Cup.

The 86 people in attendance certainly got their moneys worth with nine scorers and 17 goals over the 90 minutes.

Halesowen march on, Nuneaton will be left scratching their heads after possibly the biggest meltdown in sporting history.
