SPECTACULAR strikes from Jake Turner and Aaron Condon secured an eye-catching point as Brightlingsea Regent came from behind to draw 2-2 with Bostik League leaders Dulwich Hamlet.

The pair scored with stunning long-range efforts to cancel out goals from the visitors’ Caio Guimares and Afolabi Akinyemi.

It halted a five-game losing run for Tom Rothery’s R’s and proved a well-earned and deserved point, in front of a bumper crowd of 346.

Condon’s cracker came with just eight minutes left.

Dulwich went into the match on the back of an extraordinary week.

The London club have made national headlines after being evicted from their ground by the property developers that own their Champion Hill ground.

It has now been confirmed they will start ground-sharing with neighbours Tooting and Mitcham.

On the pitch, in marked contrast, things could hardly be better.

Tuesday’s 3-1 victory at title rivals Billericay Town meant they arrived at the Taydal Stadium sitting top of the table but just a point better off than Billericay, Folkestone Invicta and Margate.

However, it was Regent who shaded the early stages and they had chances before Dulwich’s opener.

First, Condon connected with a through ball but, with the visitors waiting for an offside flag that never came, his under-hit lob dropped safely into the hands of Corey Addei.

Harry McDonald was then just unable to make proper contact with Condon’s left-wing cross, after a clever pass from Billy Hunt.

With the R’s just getting on top, Dulwich, playing the fourth of five straight away games, took the lead against the run of play in the 27th minute.

Substitute Guimares was allowed to run at the defence before drilling a low effort inside the left-hand post.

Akinyemi nearly added a second, only to shoot narrowly wide, before Regent grabbed their stunning 41st-minute leveller through Turner.

The midfielder showed outstanding technique when the ball dropped to him outside the box and he unleashed a thunderbolt volley into the top left-hand corner.

Regent certainly deserved to be level at the break but they found themselves behind again seven minutes after the restart.

Keeper James Bradbrook’s poor pass caused a problem for Jake Gould and after being caught in possession by Akinyemi, the former Stevenage man squeezed home a shot that went in via the left-hand post.

Dulwich pressed for a third but it was the gallant hosts who scored next, eight minutes from time, to secure their point.

Condon set off on a run before firing an unstoppable low effort inside the right-hand post, past the despairing dive of Addei.

It was the final act of an absorbing contest and one that will give Regent great confidence going into their next league game at basement boys Burgess Hill Town.

Elsewhere, in division north, Chinedu Osadebe produced late fireworks as WITHAM TOWN triumphed 2-0 at home to Waltham Abbey.

The substitute popped up with goals in the 89th and 90th minutes.

HEYBRIDGE SWIFTS’ match at Bury Town was postponed followed a 10.30am pitch inspection at Ram Meadow.

It means Jody Brown’s men, who have only played 28 games, now face a gruelling schedule of 18 matches in just 46 days.

The Bury match has now been rescheduled for Thursday, March 22.

Neighbours MALDON AND TIPTREE were also left inactive following the postponement of their home match against Barking, following a 9am inspection.
