AFC conceded in the dying moments to start the new year with a 2-2 draw against Shaftesbury Town, but it was a much improved performance from when the two sides previously met. A close range finish from Ryan McMorrow put AFC in the lead, but a Shaftesbury penalty meant that it was short lived.
George Harrington put Walcountians back ahead 15 minutes in to the second half with a well taken finish at the back post, but AFC couldn’t capitalise on further chances to extend the lead. Late Shaftesbury pressure finally paid dividends as a header in the final minutes saw Shaftesbury rescue a point.
