EMIRATES F.A CUP-1ST QUALIFYING ROUND REPLAY

HANLEY TOWN 2-1 LEICESTER ROAD

The Hinckley side made a trip to the Potteries on Tuesday night hoping to maintain their unbeaten start to the season, but alas it wasn’t to be as the North West Counties League side came from behind in front of a very healthy crowd of 262. Jake Brown swept the UCL side into the lead from just inside the box after 32 minutes, but the home side swung the tie with two goals in three minutes midway through the second half. Danny Pugh levelled things up from close range at the far post with a somewhat untidy goal and two minutes later Charlie Welford broke into the box and had the fortune to see his shot deflect off a defender’s foot and sneak just inside the post. Chris Dagnall had a chance to repeat his successful penalty from the first game on Saturday in stoppage time, but this time Will Highland dived to his right to save his spot-kick, but it was too late for his outfield mates to snatch an equaliser.

COGENHOE UNITED 0-6 HARBOROUGH TOWN

The Bees went top of the table following this emphatic win at Compton Park. A first half double by Dodzi Agbenu put the visitors in charge of this one. The first on 18 minutes after Nat Ansu had played him clear and he finished neatly with a low drive that beat the keeper at his near post and the second came on 35 when the ball fell nicely for him in the box and he slotted home across the keeper. Ansu got away from his man to slot home the third on 54 and he headed home his second of the game on 72 from a Merson Styles cross. Agbenu completed his hat-trick with a well taken penalty on 80 minutes and Scott Mooney set up fellow sub for the sixth in stoppage time.

O.N CHENECKS 0-4 EASINGTON SPORTS

Having lost their opening four games, Chenecks new manager Wayne Richardson would have been hoping to open his account at home to an Easington Sports side just one place above them in the table. However it didn’t start well for the Northampton club as debutant centre-back Michael O’Regan rose to net with a towering header from a corner after just 8 minutes. Harvey Billing doubled the Banbury club’s lead after the break with a beautiful 25-yard free-kick that curled away from the keeper and into the top corner. Then O’Regan notched his second of the night with another towering header. Adam Taylor then joined in with the visitor’s fourth goal of the night with a great finish just moments later to seal the visitors first win in the UCL.

BUILDBASE F.A VASE-FIRST ROUND QUALIFYING

 

BIGGLESWADE UNITED 0-8 SOUTHEND MANOR

This one was all over before the break with the Essex Senior League side netting five times, but it was an improved performance after the break from the home side, despite conceding three more. Two own goals didn’t help United’s cause in this one as Connor Cox (2), Isaac Aquah and Josh Devlin were amongst the scorers for the Manor.

CHALVEY (WMC) SPORTS 0-2 ROTHWELL CORINTHIANS

An evening trip to Burnham for Corinthians in the Vase to face Chalvey and the perfect start as James Mann fired them into the lead in the first minute. Connor Bird headed the second five minutes into the second half to earn the UCL club a trip to Ardley United in the next round later this month.

COGENHOE UNITED 2-3 HAREFIELD UNITED

The Cooks finally found the target after four goalless games, but it didn’t stop them going down 2-3 to SSML league side Harefield United. Courtney Austin’s 9th minute goals separated the teams at the break, but a quick double strike from former pro Richard Pacquette after 54 and 56 put the visitors into a three goal lead. Tom Wakley pulled one back after 73 and the Cooks did everything they could to turn the tie around and Dylan Wilson reduced the deficit to just one goal with a stoppage time penalty, but they couldn’t get that vital third goal and the London side progressed.

COVENTRY COPSEWOOD 2-8 RUGBY TOWN

The Valley ran out big winners from their trip to Midland league Division One side Coventry Copsewood as Caine Elliott and David Kolodynski both claimed hat-tricks. Elliott opened the scoring on 16 minutes when he ran on to a through ball to score with a low shot that perhaps the keeper might have done better with and Elliott grabbed his second on 25 after robbing a defender inside the box and firing home from 10-yards. Elliott completed a first half hat-trick from the penalty spot on 33 minutes and Dylan Parker’s shot from just outside the box struck a defender’s back and looped over the keeper and into the far corner with 39 minutes played. Copsewood started the second half brightly and pulled one back when Alex Lock cut inside the box and curled a great finish beyond the dive of Ben Newey and they made it 2-4 when Sean Kavanagh squeezed the ball home at the near post. Valley found another gear now though as substitute Melu Mpande ran past several defenders and Kolodynski was left with a simple close-range finish after 52 minutes and then Dylan Parker side-footed home after good play between Kolodynski and Elliott had set him up on 65 minutes. Kolodynski got his second on 73 after former Rugby player Craig Civzelis hadn’t noticed his run around the back and headed the ball straight into his path and Kolodynski rounded off the scoring a minute from time when he bundled the ball over the line after Edwin Ahenkorah’s cross had been deflected into his path.

DEBENHAM LC 1-1 PETERBOROUGH NORTHERN STAR

(Debenham won 4-2 on pens)

Ryan Gardiner headed the Hornets in front on 27 minutes from a Will Aldiss cross, but the UCL drew level four minutes later from a long-range shot. Despite the UCL full-time page giving PNS a 4-2 win on pens, it was actually the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League step 6 side who went through by that score.

EYNESBURY ROVERS 2-0 HUNTINGDON TOWN

Goals from James Hatch (14) and Rob Ducket (61) gave Eynesbury a 2-0 win over former UCL club Huntingdon.

GODMANCHESTER ROVERS 6-1 FC PARSONS DROVE

Five second half goals gave Goddy a comfortable win over ECL new boys FC Parson Drove. Danny Baulk’s goal had separated the two teams at half-time, but an equaliser early in the second half seemed to wake up the UCL team and Ross Munro set up Matty Allan to restore the lead. Allan was again on target after good work down the right by Baulk and Lawrence Hammond soon made it four after Michael King had picked him out in the box. Allan had his hat-trick after being brought down in the box and converting the penalty himself and substitute David Olumuyiwa brought up the half-dozen to round off a very satisfactory afternoon for Rovers.

HALSTEAD TOWN 1-2 POTTON UNITED

Potton recorded a good result in Essex with a 2-1 win over the Humbugs. Luke Pyman’s low cross was converted from close range at the far post by Aaron McArdle after 29 minutes and Liam Andrews poked home Potton’s second from the edge of the 6-yard box after David Etheridge’s free kick had come back off the post. Calvin Poku pulled one back for Halstead after 62 minutes, but that was all they could manage on the day and Potton went through.

HINCKLEY LEICESTER ROAD 3-0 CRADLEY TOWN

Leicester Road cruised past Cradley with three unanswered goals. Tom Smith put them ahead when he lifted the ball over the keeper in a one-on-one situation after 34 minutes and the same player made it 2-0 on 65 with a close range finish after a great run by Sam Munton. Matt Langham saw his penalty saved on 76, but 60 seconds later they had their third of the afternoon when a Munton strike flew into the top corner.

LONG BUCKBY 2-2 TRING ATHLETIC

(Tring won 4-2 on pens)

Dom Bolton gave Buckby an early lead in this one, finishing from 20-yards out after the keeper had punched a cross away from goal with 11 minutes played, but Tring levelled things up on 32 through as former Cogenhoe player Mani Gbejuade tapped home after good work from Cameron Brooks. A great finish from the edge of the box by Tommy Twelves put Tring in front on the hour, but Tom Yorston found space in the box to slot home an equaliser for the UCL club in the very last minute of the game. No extra-time of replays in the Vase this year so straight to penalties with the SSML league side going through 4-2.

BUGBROOKE ST MICHAELS 1-2 WELLINGBOROUGH TOWN

The Doughboys came from behind at The Sett to take all three points. Calvin Green had given the Badgers the lead with a well taken free-kick early in the second half, but goals from Lloyd Buckby on 56 and Jake Newman after 69 minutes turned the game around. It’s now five straight wins for Paul Lamb’s team who are now at the dizzy heights of fourth after their poor start to the campaign.

COVENTRY SPHINX 2-3 DESBOROUGH TOWN

Desborough Town lifted themselves into the top half of the table with a superb win at second placed Coventry Sphinx. Callum Stewart gave the home side the lead after 14 minutes, but a double strike from in-form Tom Gudyer after 34 and 46 minutes put Desborough in the driving seat. Louis Guest headed Sphinx level on 65 but Iain Blaikie converted from the penalty spot with five minutes remaining to give Ar Tarn the points.

HARBOROUGH TOWN 5-0 O.N CHENECKS

The Bees made it eight out of eight and moved six points clear at the top with a 5-0 thrashing of O.N Chenecks. It took them 56 minutes to take the lead though when Nat Ansu volleyed home after Paul Malone had headed on a long Dan Cooper throw and they made it two when James Ireland buried a penalty after Merson Styles had been brought down. Skipper Ben Williams added a third on 63 and Josh Walsh made it four with a well struck free-kick from 25-yards out. Ansu grabbed his second on 88 when he slotted through Charlie Woods’ legs to bring up the nap hand and make it four in two games for the free-scoring striker.

LUTTERWORTH TOWN 6-0 EASINGTON SPORTS

Easington couldn’t build on their 4-0 midweek win as Lutterworth hit them for six at Dunley Way. Marshal Keenan grabbed himself a hat-trick, with singles for Tendai Daire, Craig Maisiri and Louis Samuels. The Swifts have enjoyed a great start to the season and are currently third in the table, one point behind Sphinx with a game in hand.

NEWPORT PAGNELL TOWN 3-1 G.N.G OADBY TOWN

Mylan Charles gave The Poachers the lead at Willen Road, but The Swans had three of their own before the break and that is how the game ended. Jordan Wright netted the equaliser on 19 minutes, Mo Ahmad put them in front on 33 and Daniel Bolzon got the third ten minutes later.
