BURNHAM Ramblers staged a remarkable recovery to snatch a 3-3 draw at Ware tonight.

Keith Wilson’s side had looked set for their fourth straight defeat after slipping 3-1 behind.

But with the match drifting into stoppage time, Billy Hunt popped up with his second of the night, followed by a dramatic leveller from Terry Griffiths.

Kieran Bishop had put the struggling hosts in front after 27 minutes.

Hunt popped up with an equaliser five minutes after half-time, but Ware nosed back in front midway through the second period thanks to Marcus Milner.

Bafode Dabo Carvalho then added a late third, before Hunt scored his second of the night on 90 minutes.

It still looked too little, too late before Griffiths netted to complete an amazing Burnham comeback.

Ramblers’ next three games are all Essex derbies.

They host Witham Town at the weekend and neighbours Maldon and Tiptree next Tuesday, before making the short trip to Heybridge Swifts on Saturday week.
