Bury Town beat Leyton Orient Under 18's 4-3 at the Denny Bros Stadium on Tuesday evening, thanks to a stunning stike from Tanner Call in the final minute, after the O's had fought back from 3-0 down early in the second half to level at 3-3.
Bury took the lead in the 2nd minute with a strike from outside the box by Tanner Call, and Cemal Ramadan doubled the advantage in the 12th minute when he bundled the ball over the line from close range.
Bury made a few changes at half time with goalkeeper Daniel Barden, Taylor Hastings, Cemal Ramadan and Jake Chambers Shaw all making way, but that did not stop Bury from taking a three goal lead when a floated cross from Branham Ince was allowed to drift into the net by goalkeeper Spencer.
Orient got themselves back into the game and took advantage of an inexperienced Bury back line and reduced the arrears in the 65th minute, and then took advantage of a spill by George Bugg to add a second goal in the 77th minute and the turnaround was complete in the 81st minute when Orient made it 3-3.
Just as looked as though it was going to be all square at the final whistle, Tanner Call picked the ball up outside the O's box and fired an unstoppable stop off the underside of the cross bar and into the net to give the Blues a 4-3 win, Neil Dady capturing the winning strike in the photo above.
Bury Town manager Ben Chenery was pleased with the workout saying "It was a useful workout for us as I got to give Cemal and Jake some extra time on the pitch as they have missed out recently, and also got to give some of the younger players some time on the pitch"
"We were comfortable when we had some experience on the pitch in the first half, but the inexperience showed in the second half and the Orient youngsters performed better than us in the second half and we made mistakes, but for a pre-season friendly it was a good game"
