Non-league team win first point after 26 straight defeats

A non-league football club have finally picked up their first point of the season after 26 straight defeats.

Bashley FC, who play in the Southern League Division One South & West, got themselves off the mark with a 0-0 home draw against Mangotsfield United.

They're still 20 points from safety at the bottom of the table - and 61 points behind league leaders Cinderford Town.

Bashley's chairman Tim Allan spoke to BBC Radio 5 live Daily's Peter Allen about the season-changing result.

"It was unbelievable, it's something we've all been working for. Putting a lot time behind the scenes, nobody gets paid."
