Ben Seymour-Shove hit a last-minute winner to fire St Ives Town to victory in their last home game of the Southern League Division One Central season.
Seymour-Shove raced onto a flick from strike-partner Stuart Eason, who had been picked out by a monster clearance from goalkeeper Tim Trebes, and fired home to break the resistance of Egham at ProEdge Westwood Road on Saturday.
And the crucial goal was also Seymour-Shove’s final contribution of the campaign as he will sit out St Ives’ remaining two away fixtures due to suspension after racking up 10 cautions.
Boss Ricky Marheineke said: “I have to admit it was one of the worst games I have ever been involved in.
“I think we only had one shot on target and luckily enough that was enough to get us the win.

“It was pleasing to sign off with a win for the fans in our final home game.”
St Ives are closing in on a highly creditable top-10 finish ahead of a trip to Godalming this Saturday.
- 1 Envar deny responsibility for county's fly invasion
- 2 'Loving, caring family man' dies in hospital weeks after A141 crash
- 3 Volunteers needed to support booster jabs programme
- 4 Appeal to Transport Secretary over Huntingdon Rail Station plan
- 5 Man jailed for historic sexual abuse 'convinced child victims it was normal behaviour'
- 6 'Plague' of flies in Huntingdonshire villages
- 7 Huntingdonshire parks awarded Green Flag status
- 8 Lisa Leader makes it to Germany for life prolonging treatment
- 9 Axe-wielding burglar smashed way into St Neots house
- 10 Man dies after single-car crash near Godmanchester
And that would be a satisfying outcome for Marheineke in his first season at the helm.
He added: “We went into the season with the simple aim of staying in the division.
“So to be sat ninth with two games to go is very pleasing.
“We are effectively a season ahead of schedule and the turnaround has been quite remarkable after such a poor start in the first 15 games.”
