GALLERY: Stratford Town 1-1 Bedford Town
HERALD photographer Mark Williamson was there to capture some of the action from Stratford Town's opening day draw with Bedford Town.
Josh Hawker had put the Bards ahead in the 26th minute when he capitalised on a loose ball to charge through the Eagles' defence and finish past the advancing Alex Street.
It looked as though the Bards were going to hang on to all three points until Will Summerfield came off the bench to score the equaliser in the 88th minute to ensure the spoils were shared.
