On the 5th May 2007 - Town dented Shrewsbury’s promotion hopes after Nick Fenton scored a late, late equaliser.   

Town had taken the lead after capitalising on a Shrews mistake with Andy Taylor scoring from 15 yards.

The hosts equalised when Ben Davies was bundled over in the box and converted the penalty and then Kelvin Langmead headed in Davies free-kick soon after.

But, in what was going to be the last ever game at Gay Meadow, the Mariners denied Shrewsbury a win when Nick Fenton headed in Peter Till's last-gasp corner to hand the Mariners a draw.
