Extra Time agony suffered in the FA Inter-League Cup
FA Inter League Cup 2nd Round

The leagues quest to claim a last eight place for the very first time was to fail when they were beaten 5-4 in extra time by The Amateur Football Combination in a game played before a crowd of 62 at Cranfield United. It was the visitors who took the lead in the 13th minute via Chris Heritage and that remained the scoreline until AFC Kempston Town & Bedford Colleges Dan Green levelled matters just 15 minutes from time to send the game into extra time.

Within three minutes the AFC were back in front via Charlie Cain but this time it took the league just two minutes to draw level when Ickwell & Old Warden's Scott Alleyne's cross turned into an own goal and 2-2. For the third time in the contest AFC nosed ahead again in the 103rd minute with a goal from Ryan Bright but right on the stroke of half-time Cranfield United's Jack Goodacre made it 3-3 and left all to play for in the second period.

Within three minutes of the restart Shefford Town & Campton's James Burnside shot the league into a 4-3 lead which was cancelled out when Ryan Bright netted from the penalty spot just two minutes later and with everyone gearing themselves up for a dreaded penalty shoot-out up popped Ellis McLennon to win the tie for the visitors in the 119th minute.
