Herts Ad Sunday League: Camp victorious in cup shock
- Credit: Archant
Camp Victorians won 3-2 in a pulsating Intermediate Cup game, against higher league opposition in Primary Care.
They took the lead with a wonderful 30-yard lob by Aaron Lumdson only to throw it away with two pieces of sloppy defending.
However, after a stern talking to at half-time, and an astute tactical switch, the Victorians turned it around.
Substitute Charlie Lumsdon equalised before Mickey Sinnott wrapped the game up.
Dan Coyle and James Hiller scored for Primary Care.
