Cup Draw Today - #38

Last updated : 30 October 2011 By

Today's draw will take place live on ITV at 1.30pm.

Saturday`s Fourth Qualifying Round produced a handful of `surprise` results and enough minnows in tomorrow`s draw with players hoping to become overnight household names.

East Thurrock United, Arlesey Town, Oxford City, Nantwich Town and Redbridge produced upsets, none of the but the Step 5 or 6 survivors made it through to tomorrow`s live First Round Proper draw.

Ryman League First Division North outfit Redbridge produced arguably the result of the day by ousting Blue Square Bet Premier side Ebbsfleet United from the competition at the Oakside Stadium.

Ryan Murray broke the deadlock by putting the Motormen ahead in the 79th minute and with 5 minutes remaining, Joe Gardner ensured progression for Terry Spillane`s team.

Redbridge`s Ryman Premier Division Essex neighbours East Thurrock United won 2-1 at Conference South hosts Eastbourne Borough`s Priory Lane.

Sam Higgins gave the Rocks a 57th minute lead that Kris Newby doubled from the penalty spot after 73 minutes.

Gary Elphick reduced the arrears 10 minutes from time, but East Thurrock hung on for a terrific win against a side who were three divisions higher last season.

Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division side Arlesey Town produced a great 2-1 win at Hitchin Road against Conference Premier visitors Forest Green Rovers, who broke the deadlock just past the hour-mark through Jared Hodgkiss.

But 5 minutes from time Chris Dillon looked like he`d earned the Bedfordshire side a reply with a leveller – but up popped David Deeney to win it for the underdogs in stoppage time.

Arlesey`s league rivals Oxford City also caused an upset by winning by the odd goal in five at the Woodspring Stadium against Conference South side Weston-super-Mare.

City were two-up at the break, thanks to goals from Darren Pond after 3 minutes and Steve Basham on 35 before Weston pulled one back from the penalty spot through Nat Pepperell.

Felipe Barcelos restored the two-goal cushion with quarter-of-an-hour remaining and though the home side grabbed a second goal near the end they couldn't deny City a notable win.

And Matt Lowe was Nantwich`s hero as the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division outfit edged out Conference North side Nuneaton Town at the Weaver Stadium.

Lowe`s goal came 20 minutes from time to earn Jimmy Quinn`s side a place in tomorrow`s hat.

Ryman Premier Division side Leatherhead are also still in the draw after holding Conference South neighbours Sutton United to a thrilling 3-3 Gander Green Lane draw.

Tommy Hutchings gave the Tanners – once famed FA Cup fighters in the `Leatherhead Lip`days – a 27th minute lead that Craig Dundas cancelled out almost immediately.

But Elliott Thompson restored the visitors lead 3 minutes later only for Dundas to respond quickly again.

Craig Watkins gave Sutton the lead for the first time on the hour-mark, but Kev Terry earned a deserved second chance for Leatherhead with a third on 69 minutes.

However, Southend Manor, Hanworth Villa, King`s Lynn Town, Hebburn Town and Ashington all failed to progress against higher league opposition.

Quite a few eyes were cast over towards Nene Park for a possible upset as Conference Premier strugglers Kettering Town faced Essex Senior League battlers Southend Manor.

And with the scores level at the interval, there was a potential shock on the cards but the hosts upped a gear in the second half to make sure their name would be in the hat for tomorrow’s draw.

The hosts who went in front after 7 minutes when Josh Dawkin’s centre fell for Leon McKenzie to finish neatly from 10 yards out.

Phil Ifel tested Adam Seal with a long-range free-kick and it was from the same avenue that the visitors drew level.

Marcus Kelly’s unnecessary challenge on the right side of the area gave Max Kent a shooting opportunity and Walker proceeded to make a complete hash of a routine catch when he allowed the ball to go through his hands.

Four minutes after the break the lead was back in the Poppies’ hands.

Kelly’s ball to McKenzie was flicked perfectly into Jean-Paul Marna, on for Moses Ashikodi, who fired emphatically past Seal.

There was far more urgency about the home side and they took control just before the hour when Marna hit his second after a McKenzie effort had cannoned into his strike partner’s path.

That should’ve been it as far as a contest went as the gulf in standard started to show and it would have been all over if Seal hadn’t parried Dawkin’s first-time effort wide.

It was one-way traffic by now. Marna drilled across goal, Dawkin had a shot blocked and hammered one over and Aman Verma clattered the bar.

Combined Counties League side Hanworth Villa`s great FA Cup venture is over after a hard-fought 3-2 defeat at Southern Premier Division high-flyers AFC Totton.

Callum Davies gave the home side the lead after 42 minutes only for Levi King to level within a couple of minutes.

However, Nathan Campbell restored Totton`s lead right on half-time with a third goal in 3 minutes.

And Nathanial Sherborne added the home side`s third with 20 minutes remaining, although Duane Antonio made sure of a nervy finale when he pulled one back for Villa in injury-time.

The two STL Northern League sides fell at the Fourth Qualifying Round stage – with Second Division minnows Hebburn Town`s brilliant run ended at Conference Premier neighbours Gateshead.

The Tynesiders had to wait until 8 minutes into the second half to make the breakthrough through Jon Shaw, and the same player doubled their advantage just past the hour-mark.

And on 71 minutes Nathan Fisher endured there was to be no way back for Hebburn with Gateshead`s third.

STL First Division side Ashington were on the wrong end of a 5-0 drubbing at Blundell Park by another Conference Premier outfit, Grimsby Town.

The Mariners had the perfect start when Rob Duffy got on the end of debutant loan defender Conor Townsend's cross to head home after 5 minutes. Town dominated for long spells but had to wait until two goals in 2 minutes from in-form striker Liam Hearn just before half-time to extend their lead.

After the break, Town strolled through the tie and substitute Rob Eagle crashed a great strike in off the post to make it four on 73 minutes.

Then, the rout was complete when young forward Dayle Southwell headed home a first senior goal just 40 seconds after his introduction with 12 minutes to go.

ChromaSport Trophies United Counties League Premier Division King`s Lynn Town's memorable FA Cup debut campaign came to an end as they bowed out 2-1 at Conference Premier Tamworth`s Lamb ground.

Jamie Thurlbourne gave Lynn a 12th minute lead but Kyle Patterson levelled 10 minutes later and Kieran St Aimie won it for the Lambs 4 minutes before the break.

Other ties involving Football Conference clubs and lower league opponents produced expected outcomes.

Aaron O'Connor was on target twice as Luton Town cruised to a comfortable four-goal victory over Ryman Premier Division outfit Hendon at Kenilworth Road.

Gary McCann's had briefly threatened an upset after taking an early 5th minute lead through Carl McCuskey, but the Conference Premier promotion contenders swiftly snuffed out those hopes, with O'Connor capping another impressive performance with a double to crush the dreams of the Greens' loyal followers that made the short trip up the M1 from North London.

James Dance after 13 minutes, Tommy Wright on 25 and Stuart Fleetwood on 71 were the other Hatters` scorers.

Barrow AFC`s Adam Boyes stole a march on the player of the round award by netting all four of the Conference Premier side`s goals at Wincham Park against Evo-Stik NPL First Division North hosts Witton Albion.

And in fact Barrow were a goal down when Alex Titchiner gave Albion a 55th minute lead.

But Boyes levelled 10 minutes later and he went on to complete a 20-minute hat-trick and added a fourth in time added on.

Conference South side Maidenhead United survived a potential banana skin with a convincing 5-0 win at Ryman Division One South Godalming Town.

Leon Solomon bagged a hat-trick for the Magpies, adding to goals from Martel Powell and Manny Williams.

Conference North side Bishop’s Stortford slipped out of the competition after losing 2-1 at Woodside Park to Conference South visitors Salisbury City.

Salisbury went in front on 41 minutes when Ryan Brett headed home.

But the decisive goal came in injury-time in the first half. Charlie Knight seized on an error from Stortford left-back Sebastian Dunbar to slot past the hosts’ on-loan Spurs keeper Jordan Archer.

A goal 4 minutes into second half stoppage time from Scott Shulton gave Stortford a sliver of hope but it was just too late for the hosts to try and salvage a replay.

Of the all-Conference Premier ties, Southport hung on to a lead given to them by Andy Owens after just 1 minute 20 seconds after the Stockport County defence had failed to clear a long-throw to progress into the First Round.

Managerless Wrexham are through, beating York City 2-1 at the Racecourse Ground with goals from Nathaniel Knight-Percival and a David McGurk own goal after Patrick McLaughlin had equalised.

Another Welsh side through are Newport County, who edged past Braintree Town by the odd goal in seven at Spytty Park.

Ben Wright gave the Iron a 9th minute lead that Sam Foley levelled after 25 minutes.

Craig McAllister put the Exiles in front 9 minutes after the break only for Andy Yiadom to pull Braintree back on terms on 66 minutes.

Nat Jarvis then made it 3-2 to the hosts 10 minutes later but the visitors just wouldn`t give in and Kenny Davis scored 4 minutes from time to make it 3-3.

However, in the last minute Paul Rodgers popped up with a winner for Justin Edinburgh`s side.

Ashley Carew bagged a brace as Cambridge United eased comfortably into tomorrow's draw at Kingfield against Hayes & Yeading United.

Ryan Crockford gave Hayes & Yeading the edge on 29 minutes with a well-taken 25-yard free-kick.

But their lead lasted just 2 minutes though, as Luke Berry made a great run to tap in Carew's low right-wing cross before Carew put the visitors in front a minute before the break.

Harrison Dunk lashed home Carew's cross less than 30 seconds after the restart in the second half before Carew grabbed his second 10 minutes from time with a 20-yard drive.

Jordan Patrick made it 5-1 with his first touch after coming off the bench on 85 minutes before Hayes pulled one back through Louis Soares' penalty 3 minutes later after he was brought down by James Jennings in the box.

But U`s substitute Ryan Charles had the final word with a cool finish in stoppage time.

There are a couple of replays required as Mansfield Town against Fleetwood Town and Alfreton Town and Lincoln City both shared 1-1 draws.

Jamie Milligan gave Fleetwood the lead just before half-time at Field Mill, only for Ross Dyer to level on 65 minutes.

And at the Impact Arena, Sam Smith put the Imps ahead after 10 minutes, but the Reds remain in the hat for tomorrow`s draw, courtesy of Nathan Jarman`s 41st minute penalty conversion.

Andy Gallinagh only agreed a loan extension with Bath City yesterday – and he scored the only goal of the tie at Conference South Dover Athletic`s Crabble a minute after half-time.

In all-Conference North encounters, AFC Telford United moved emphatically through at the expense of Gainsborough Trinity at the New Bucks Head, running out 5-0 winners.

Courtney Pitt after 9 and 65 minutes and Chris Sharp after 53 and 72 minutes both bagged braces for the hosts, with Shane Killock sandwiching the other on 42 minutes.

At Damson Park, Danny Holland scored the only goal of the game with 17 minutes to go to send FC Halifax Town through at the expense of hosts Solihull Moors.

In ties between Conference South teams, Basingstoke Town took a 37th minute lead against Staines Town at the Camrose through Jay Gasson.

And Shaun McAuley doubled the home side`s advantage right on half-time, with Marc Charles-Smith`s reply 5 minutes after the restart all Staines could muster.

At Princes Park, visiting Bromley took a 27th minute lead against Dartford through Hakeem Araba.

Jack Pallen equalised on 31 minutes, but Gareth Williams took the visitors through with a 76tyh minute strike.

Two Conference North v South ties ended all-square.

At Melbourne Park, Kenny Clark's injury-time equaliser for Chelmsford City ensured that both the Clarets and the Gloucester City will be in First Round Proper draw on Sunday.

City had fallen behind to Will Murford's opener right on half-time and looked to be heading out of the competition before Clark connected with Akurang's centre and sent a rasping volley past Lewis Casey from ten yards.

Chelmsford's Cliff Akurang was given a red card for violent conduct in the final seconds when he lashed out at Tom Webb as City pushed for a winner.

But Gloucester held on to force a replay at Cheltenham Town's Whaddon Road on Tuesday.

Conference North side Corby Town produced a battling performance to hold Conference Premier hosts Kidderminster Harriers to a goalless draw at Aggborough.

A replay at Steel Park was the least the Steelmen deserved on the day.

Corby`s league rivals Hinckley United will be fancying their chances in the replay after also holding Conference Premier opponents on their own turf.

Managerless Darlington took an early 4th minute lead at the Northern Echo Arena through Ryan Bowman, only for Sam Belcher to level 6 minutes later.

Another tie to end goalless was at the Butcher`s Arms between Conference North rivals Droylsden and Blyth Spartans.

Ties involving teams outside the top three divisions saw a comprehensive 5-0 win for Southern Premier side Stourbridge over NPL Premier Division Rushall Olympic at Amblecote.

Ben Billingham and Ryan Rowe gave the Glassboys a 2-0 half-time lead that Aaron Drake, Billingham again and Leon Broadhurst added to without reply.

NPL Premier visitors Bradford Park Avenue won 2-0 at NPL First Division South Kidsgrove Athletic, thanks to a second half brace from Jimmy Beadle.
