Hartley Wintney's FA Cup run goes on
HARTLEY Wintney continued their great run in the FA Cup with a 2-0 win at Camberley in Tuesday night’s first qualifying round replay which earned them a trip to Eastbourne Town.
The all Combined Counties Premier Division clash saw the visitors take the lead after 25 minutes as Carl Saunders’ cross was put away by Shane Hollamby.
After the break, the home side had a 20 minute spell where it looked like they would get an equaliser.
Hartley then made the tie safe 10 minutes from time as Hollamby was brought down in the area and Ryan Stephens converted from the spot.
On Saturday in the first game between the sides a 0-0 draw ended up a fair result player/manager Ben Dillon had a chance cleaned off the line, while Jack Coventry’s shot hit the post.
Talking about the two games Dillon said: “I think on Saturday we knew we could do better as if we didn’t we were going out.
“Camberley are a good side, but I don’t think they could deal with the pace of Ryan Stephens and the quality of Shane Hollamby and Jack Coventry.”
This weekend, Hartley will start as underdogs as they travel to Hellenic League Premier Division Bracknell in the second qualifying round of the FA Vase.
The village side will have Sam Argent and Stuart Urquhart back in the squad for the trip to Berkshire and then on Tuesday night they return to league action with an away game at Windsor.
Dillon said: “Everyone at the club is buzzing at the moment and we would like to have a nice run in the FA Vase and Bracknell have not been doing that well so we will see what happens.”
