Town through but Tadley bow out

Two goals for Marcus Mealing

HOPES of a Thatcham versus Tadley Calleva FA Cup derby at Waterside Park were scotched when Tadley went down 3-2 at home to Combined League Guildford City in Saturday’s Extra Preliminary Round tie at Barlows Park.

Trailing 3-0 early in the second half, Tadley staged a rally but could not salvage a replay.

The result sends Guildford to Thatcham on August 29 after two Marcus Mealing goals saw them past fellow Hellenic Leaguers Highmoor Ibis to pocket the £1,500 purse.
