Alford Town came from behind to win 2-1 against Barnoldby and progress to the 2015 Town Trophy final.

Alford trailed 1-0 at half time after conceding an early goal from Stefan Melin. However, they improved in the second half and equalized through Andi Reeson.

The game looked like it was heading to extra time until substitute James Cole scored the winner with minutes remaining. Alford hung on for a victory and sealed their place in the final.

The date of the final is yet to be decided, but it will probably be some time in May. Their opponents are not known either because a few matches in the competition haven’t been played yet.

Alford’s thoughts return to league action on Saturday when they visit North Thoresby.
