FOOTBALL: Ten-man Didcot through in Trophy
11:00am Wednesday 31st October 2012 in Sport
Ten-man Didcot Town deservedly won through to the FA Carlsberg Trophy third qualifying round and a home tie with Dorchester after beating Poole Town 2-0 in Tuesday night’s replay at the Loop Meadow.
Lance Williams opened the scoring on 23 minutes when he turned home Elliott Osborne-Ricketts’s free-kick.
Morgan Williams was then sent off after picking up two cautions and Didcot had to defend desperately to maintain their slender advantage in the closing stages.
But in stoppage time, Brian Bowles fired home from just inside Poole’s half to make the game safe.
North Leigh picked up three useful Evo-Stik Southern League Division 1 South & West points with a comfortable 2-0 win over Winchester City at Eynsham Park.
John Mills put the Millers ahead on 20 minutes after a one-two with Kieran Sanders.
Winchester’s hopes of a comeback suffered a major blow on the half hour when their centre forward, Andrew White, was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence.
North Leigh struggled to press home their advantage against ten men and it took until the 76th minute to find the target again.
Michael Hopkins cut in and saw his right-foot shot deflected past the keeper.
