The First Team progress to the next round
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.
