Highworth Town came back from behind to beat Fairford Town 2-1 on Tuesday night in the Hellenic League Challenge Cup and they couldn’t have done it without new goalkeeper Kent Kauppinen.

Kauppinen pulled off a string of fine saves to deny Fairford but none more so than this late save.

Ash Edenborough scored Highworth’s first before Tom Cole headed home the winner with 11 minutes remaining.
