|Hadlow Hornets||v||Green Lane|
The three first round matches all took place.
Crowborough Town's good form at the head of Division Three did not match the powerful Division Two Gardener's Arms side.
Although Town gave it their best effort, the gap between the top of
Division Two and the top of Division Three was very apparent throughout
The visitors were a few regulars missing, but the players who stepped into the starting line up proved the club's strength in depth - at least for a Division Three side. There were chances at both ends for the first thirty minutes but neither side could find the net, then with half time looming Gardeners upped their game to rattle in four goals in quick succession. Aaron Austin, Lee Cooper and couple from Brad Moon improved Gardener's mood at half time.
Half Time : Gardeners Arms 4 - 0 Crowborough Town
Although the home side had most of the possession after the restart, Crowborough dug deep and managed to keep a second half clean sheet. Chances went begging, the visitors defence gave their all, and perhaps, at times rode their luck. All-in-all an encouraging performance by Town but they'll be happy to return to Division Three action next Sunday. Gardener's 'keeper Ben Carter kept his third clean sheet of the season and he now leads the way in that department.
Green Lane disposed of Hadlow Hornets
7-0 at Williams Field. There were seven different scorers , namely
Robert Montandon, James Knight, James Donaldson, Matt Brown, Josh
Harris, Josh Turnham-Scott and Mr own goal. Martyn Taylor kept the clean
sheet, his side's first of the season.
Bricklayer's Arms gave their higher ranked opponents Cassidy's Phoenix
a good run for their money, taking the tie to extra time. But it was
the Phoenix that rose, winning 2-1 at the end of the extra period.
After a goal-less first half, Rob Hicklin opened the scoring for
Bricklayer's Arms with a well executed shot from a low free kick
delivered by Simon Munday. The lead only lasted five minutes as a
wayward leg from Hicklin conceded a penalty. Ollie Muggeridge scored
it, one- all. Both teams had chances late in the second half but
none were converted so extra time was called for. Both teams battled
well in the first fifteen minute period but there were still no goals. A
few minutes into the second period of extra time, a brief slip in
Brick's concentration let Cassidy's striker Alberto Fernandez through on
goal and he finished coolly off the post
