Newlands dominated the first half and thought they'd taken the lead after 15 minutes when Liam Cooper appeared to have scored, but the referee deemed Gary Thomas had cleared before the ball crossed the Angel line.

Angel then took the lead against the run of play, Jamie Bradshaw firing in an unstoppable finish from just inside the box.

Newlands were soon back on level terms though, Aidan Thomas equalising with a stunning solo effort after cutting in from the flank and finding the bottom corner.

After a fairly even second half, Newlands were again aggrieved by a refereeing decision when they thought they should've been awarded a penalty when Kurtis Henderson was sent sprawling in the box, but again the referee spurned their appeals and the game finished all square.

"We've had a goal that should've stood disallowed, a stonewall penalty not given and missed quite a few chances, I feel we deserved to win the game," said Newlands boss Joe Hakings.

Angel boss Dan Jones said: "I think a draw was about fair, they dominated the first half but we came back into in the second half."

Left-midfielder Liam Cooper was Newlands' star man, while Jones singled out Gary Thomas and Kris Tate as his side's standout performers.
