Written by Matthew Hunter on 13th May 2022
The London Non-League Club You Didn’t Know About Founded By Geordies 100 years ago; have just been promoted to Step Three for the first time in their history!
Hanwell Town Football Club defeated Chertsey Town 2-3 at Alwyn’s Lane in Surrey 11 days ago in a thrilling encounter.
The Geordies looked to have secured the victory through Dwayne Duncan after half an hour, but with a mere eight seconds to go until the final whistle, Chertsey Town scored and the game; was taken to extra time.
Hanwell looked to be dead and buried when they went 2-1 down after 5 minutes of the restart and were reduced to ten men when Kyle Watson was sent off, with a second yellow last man, but they responded excellently and equalised through Tom Collins.
In the 113th minute, Ogo Obi scored to make it 3-2 to the delight of the travelling Geordies, and that was how it finished!
