Town await Cup draw

Alresford Town 0 Thatcham Town 2

THATCHAM booked a First Qualifying Round at Hamworthy United after scoring a goal in each half to account for another Wessex League club in Saturday's Emirates FA Cup Preliminary Round tie.

They will to to the club on the outskirts of Poole on September 2 after a goal in each half saw them through on Saturday against manager Danny Robinson’s former charges.

They went ahead after 13 minutes when Shane Cooper-Clark latched onto Harrison Bayley’s long clearance to score, after which both sides had chances.

Tom Sands fired one wide and forced Chris Rackley to save another, and Harry Grant headed wide from close range before the break.

Thatcham’s decisive second goal came a dozen minutes from time when substitute Josh Helmore got free on the left and his cross was headed home  by Joe Blount to pout £1,925 in Town’s kitty.
