RETFORD United suffered a 4-0 defeat at home to FC United of Manchester on Saturday, and conceded a truly bizarre opener.

Visiting keeper Sam Ashton got on the scoresheet after three minutes when he punted the ball clear from his own box, it bounced over Retford stopper Luke Herriott and went into the net.

Badgers’ afternoon got worse as Jerome Wright, Matthew Wolfenden and Jake Cottrell found the net on 21, 71 and 77 minutes.
