HARTLEY Wintney’s FA Cup dream remains alive, but the club will have to replay their Extra-Preliminary Round tie against Frimley Green.

The first match between the teams at the Memorial Ground was abandoned at half-time, with Frimley 2-1 up but down to 10 men, after an incident outside the changing rooms.

In the light of that, the FA have decided that the game must be replayed on Saturday, with the winners due to travel to Ardley United for a Preliminary Round tie on Tuesday.

Hartley returned to Combined Counties League Premier Division action over the weekend, taking four points from their two games.

A goal-less draw at Westfield was followed by a 1-0 home win over Knaphill, Ryan Stephens scoring the only goal from the penalty spot after Jason Palmer was brought down.

If they lose on Saturday, Hartley will be in Hampshire Senior Cup action on Tuesday night, hosting Wessex League Division One outfit Andover New Street.
