Match Report Wednesday 2nd September
Sherborne Town FC 2 - 1 Street
With spirits high our first team played exceptionally against tough opposition to progress to the next round of the FA Cup!
Something of a local derby, Street FC came to Raleigh Grove with one thing in mind - beating us on our home turf. Luckily for us our team came out with a similar plan!
With an early goal from Zebras No5 Dan Newens, we were quickly 1-0 up, a second goal was less than half an hour behind, a stunner from Haydn Hodges put us 2-0 up at the half time whistle. Spirits were high in the changing rooms.
But Street came back less than 15 minutes after the restart with a goal from Captain Kam Andrews to bring the score to 2-1, and to keep Streets hopes alive.
Despite the rain and the constant pressure from the opposition, the final whistle blew with us remaining 2-1 up and progressing to the next round.
We would like to thank Street FC and all their fans for a great game and evening and wish them every success in the coming season.
Our next FA Cup game will be against Clevedon FC on 12th September.
