Liam Ferdinand sparked a Hungerford Town fightback on Saturday as the Crusaders fought back from 2-0 down at Dulwich Hamlet in the Vanarama National League South.
Its been a tough few weeks results wise for Ian Herring’s side but it was a tremendous second win of the season as first Liam Ferdinand pounced on 48 minutes and the former Bracknell Town striker had a hand in the second strike by Joe Tomlinson on 50 minutes.
Matt Jones then sealed the points for the Crusaders on 68 minutes with a deflected strike to lift the West Berkshire side off the bottom.
