FA Cup Roundup

Bedworth United, Chalfont St. Peter, Kettering Town and Uxbridge form the four Southern League Division One Central sides guaranteed passage to the FA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round following today's results, with another five - Barton Rovers, Beaconsfield SYCOB, Godalming Town, Northwood and Rugby Town - all requiring replays to determine their fate.

Another side, North Greenford United, didn't even get chance to play after their tie at AFC Kempston Rovers was postponed "pending an FA investigation".

Chalfont St. Peter caused something of an upset, as Glenn Yala's goal twelve minutes from time gave the Saints a 2-1 win to knock out Premier Division outfit Hungerford Town, with both sides unbeaten in their previous five matches.

An all Division One Central clash saw another two in-form teams meet, as Aylesbury FC hosted league leaders Kettering Town at Haywood Way, where a crowd of 342 saw Jason Lee net his first since signing for the Poppies to open the scoring as the visitors ran out 2-1 winners.

Bedfont & Feltham, who had shocked Leighton Town in the previous round, were clinically disposed of by Uxbridge, who racked up the biggest score of all Southern League sides as they won 6-0, with Craig Tomkins and Matt Woods scoring two each.

Danny Dubidat's second hat-trick in successive games made it four wins on the spin in league and cup for Bedworth United, who won comfortably 3-0 at Midland Football League side Boldmere St. Michaels. Dubidat's treble, coming on 66, 70 and 89 minutes takes his tally to 12 for the season, in 11 games.

Debutant Tony Burnett, signed in the week from Dunstable Town, gave Barton Rovers a late lead against Northwood, but that only lasted seven minutes as George Nicholas equalised a tight game in the 86th minute, whilst another all Division One Central clash between Godalming Town and Beaconsfield SYCOB ended goalless.

Also clinging onto survival in the competition are Rugby Town, whose Jamie Towers provided the second half response to a first half opener against Unibond League Division One South outfit Chasetown in a 1-1 draw.

Out of the FA Cup are Daventry Town, who lost 2-1 at Premier Division side Hitchin Town to become the only Division One Central side eliminated on the day. 

Elsewhere, Bedford Town and Leighton Town filled their free Saturday by bringing forward their Red Insure Cup First Round tie, and it was the Reds who built on their league win at the Eyrie in August by going through 4-2 on penalties having twice battled back from a goal down, the match ending 2-2.
