THE Mariners were knocked out of the Lincolnshire Cup after a 2-1 defeat at Stamford tonight.
All the action came in the final quarter of the tie. The home side took the lead on 80 minutes when Jordan Smith headed past Andy Warrington. Town were level soon after when Harry Clifton fired home, with the tie looking to be heading for spot kicks. But Stamford weren't done and Batchelor was on hand to head a late, late winner.
Town: Warrington, Mills, Hough, Pearson, Jones, Bolarinwa, Clifton, Venney, Disley, Wright, Browne.
Subs: Heath-Drury, Finnegan, Lawis, Sawyer, Lofts, Keeble.
