Southgate were unable to hold on to a two-goal lead for the second match in succession as they again had to settle for a draw on Sunday.

Having led 3-1 in their 3-3 draw at Cambridge City the previous week, Southgate opened up a 2-0 advantage, but this time Richmond battled back for a 2-2 result.

After Alex Williams had seen a goal disallowed following a dangerous pass in an evenly-matched but scoreless first half, Southgate took the lead two minutes after the break from a John Sterlini penalty stroke after Matt Allister had been taken out in the circle.

That advantage was doubled in the 53rd minute when a Giulio Ferrini cross was deflected in by a Richmond defender.

However, the visitors responded within a minute through a Jordan Hussell penalty stroke and two minutes later were level when Marcus Howard turned in the rebound after Chris Rea had saved.

There was disappointment for Southgate ladies who were beaten 3-2 at Horsham.

Frankie Cox gave Southgate the lead after four minutes, but their opponents soon responded and were to open up a 3-1 advantage.

Southgate dug deep in the second half but their only reward was a Jennie Stephens goal two minutes from time.
