A last-minute penalty converted by Shane Leech earned Brandon a deserved point at North Walsham.

A bright start from the visitors saw them pass and move with great fluency and the opening stages were played in the Walsham half.

The second half saw a rejuvenated North Walsham come into the game more and they took the lead on 56 minutes after some moderate defending by Brandon.
