DIMINUTIVE defender Abdulaziz Aldhayan scored a dramatic last-minute winner to give Talbot Rangers the verdict 3-2 against Hayward League rivals Loch & Quay in an FA Sunday Cup first round clash at Lymington.

Ben Hatch had given Loch & Quay a fifth-minute lead, neatly clipping the ball into the top corner.

And they had a glorious opportunity to double their advantage 10 minutes later when they were awarded a penalty.

Goalkeeper Jack Robinson came to Rangers’ rescue though, getting down superbly to stop Jamie Morgan’s spot kick and then reacting quickly to save Dan Hiscock’s follow-up effort.

New signing Max Crow put Rangers on terms midway through the first half with a superb 25-yard strike. Shane Sheridan slammed home a rebound to put them in front 10 minutes before the interval.

Loch & Quay levelled 10 minutes from time when Rafael Santos burst through on the left to drive the ball past the goalkeeper.

But Aldhayan won the tie for Rangers with his last-gasp effort, sprinting through the middle to round the keeper and plant the ball in the back of the net.
