Two goals from Archie McClelland inspired Harpenden Town to grab at point in an incredible 3-3 draw at home to Crawley Green.

Harps had actually taken the lead in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division match through Callum Yeates but a lapse midway through the first half saw them concede two goals in two minutes.

And by half-time the Luton club had got themselves 3-1 ahead.

However, a penalty gave Harpenden a way back into the game and although that was saved, McClelland followed up to net the rebound.

And he delighted the home supporters further with a 90th minute equaliser.
