FA Cup – Midweek Football

FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round

Banstead Athletic 2-2 Bearsted

Knaphill 2-2 Lordswood
(Knaphill win 4-3 on pens)

Tuesday night saw Bearsted finally visit Banstead Athletic for their FA Cup tie, but after a 2-2 draw they will have to do it again next week. Harrison Hatfull and Sam Stace got the goals for the Bears, who were twice behind but now still in the running to host Burgess Hill Town in the next round.

Lordswood’s FA Cup journey is over, and in the unluckiest of ways. The Lords went out on penalties after their game finished 2-2, with Daniel Smith and Zak Jakubowski scoring second half goals for our SCEFL side to send the tie into extra time and beyond.

FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round

Erith & Belvedere 3-1 Tooting & Mitcham (aet)


Erith & Belvedere have knocked Tooting & Mitcham out of the FA Cup after a 3-1 extra time win at Park View Road.

The Deres took the lead on 51 minutes through Tyler Anderson-Parr but their Step 4 opponents responded through Dan Williams.

The incredible win, in front of a crowd of 180, has set up a match with AFC Croydon in the next round.
