The four second round ties played produced no shocks. Brenchley had beaten Langton Green in the league earlier in the season and repeated the result,
this time on their opponent's turf. Brenchley progress into the third
round draw thanks to a pair by Michael van Oorschot and further goals by
Mike Williams and Tom Lowe. The Green are having a bad time of it at
the moment, but managed to score through Rich Bishop in the 4-1 defeat.
Likewise, Tonbridge Casuals had the better of the all Division Three clash at Insulators Reserves.
They too had beaten their cup opponents in the League earlier this
term. They came away witha 6-1 win, Matt Donnelly and Tom Willers both
scoring twice, Adam West and Joe Lewis scoring one apiece. It was
Casuals first win in four games. Insualtors reserves, who now haven't
won in five outings, pulled one back before half time via Fabian
Fernandez to make it 3-1, but defensive errors cost them dearly during
the second period.
The other two ties saw Division Two triumph over Division Three. A
hat-trick by Chris Neatherway (his first goals of the season) saw FC Grinstead on the way to a 6-3 win over TW Ridgewaye.
Joe Moulding and Callum Gardner also scored for Grinstead, the sixth
was an an own goal. Ridgewaye obviously put up a good fight, Lewis
Inglis scoring two and Dan Thomas the third.
Green Street Blues, second in Division Two, travelled to Paddock Wood Reserves
and were made to work hard for their 3-1 win. Matt O'Sullivan (2) and
Chris Harragin scored the all important goals. Simon Hammond scored the
The tie between Crowborough Town and Tonbridge United was called off.
Speldhurst Rangers are well on the way to qualifying for the second round after a 5-0 win over East Grinstead Mavericks
has them sitting on top of the Group One table with three wins from
three games. A point in their final group game next week would guarantee
a spot in the next round, a win would guarantee finishing top of the
group. Defeat at the hands of Tonbridge Origin Reserves would throw things into the mixer.
The game started with Rangers on the front foot, but struggling to
beat the resilient Mavericks goalkeeper. This was until Jolyon Wheller
managed to squeeze one past him in a one on one situation in the 25th
minute. James Hughes then scored a few minutes later to make it two-nil.
The third goal came from Dan Kelly, which was assisted by the
wind causing the goalkeeper to completely misjudge it. It was a free
kick from near the half way line on the side of the pitch, Kelly floated
a ball in which looked like it was going high and wide, until a gust of
wind drew the ball towards the goal and looped it over the stranded
In the second half the standard of football dropped for both teams. However the only two good plays lead to two more goals for Rangers, one from Wheller and the other from Joe Hearndon. In goal, Liam Baldwin's clean sheet was the only one of the day and his third of the season. He now is tied at the top of that particular little table.
