TADLEY MOVE ON TO THE 3RD ROUND WITH 4-2 WIN AGAINST BASHLEY
This was a fine win against Premier Division oppositon who started this game playing neat attacking football - which eventually resulted in a well worked goal after 5 minutes when striker Lewis Ross capitalised on some defensive hesitancy to stab the ball home.
However, on 12 minutes and having settled into the pace of the game, we drew level when Archie Fawcett slotted a beauty into the far corner of the net after a superb pass from Sam Hamilton. We took the lead in the 23rd minute after Hamilton was pulled down in the box. George Hallahan made no mistake from the spot finding the bottom corner giving keeper Michael Edgar no chance.
It was Hallahan who extended our lead on 55 minutes when he received a great pass from Kallum Thomas, turned and fired home to give us the two goal cushion. He then completed his hat-trick with another deadly strike from the edge of the box before Ross gave the scoreline a level of respectability with his second goal with the last kick of the game.
This was a fine win for the lads and a great performance against a good team that looked dangerous throughout, but lacked the striking power so capably shown by ourselves.
Team; Greene, Kingston, Mellos (Thomas), Shade, Walsh, Vickers, Hamilton, Kinge, Hallahan, Phillips (Maclean)
