The first team made history by reaching the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup for the first time ever following an excellent 1-0 win at Hertford Town. Our hosts had a good chance to take the lead within the first minute after their striker Tommy Wade found himself in on goal, but Wade's effort was saved by Charlie Mann to keep the scores level. We responded well and played some good football in the opening stages. This continued throughout the half as we had some good spells of possession, but despite this we failed to really test the Hertford keeper enough. Hertford nearly took the lead with a very good long range strike but it hit the woodwork and the first half ended goalless. We made a couple of substitutions early in the second half with Christian Londono first replacing Ibrahim Lukulay and then Tyrone Mulholland coming on for Bilal Sanchez. Soon after, we took the lead when a Hesham Benmansour pass found Nick Chrysanthou clear of the Hertford defence. Chrysanthou cooly rounded the Hertford keeper and slotted home to make it 1-0. We defended excellently throughout the second half and as Hertford pushed forward for an equaliser, we should have extended our lead with Hesham Benmansour and Zaine Gangadeen both having excellent chances late on in the game. Neither could find a way past the Hertford keeper but we saw the game out to complete an excellent win and team performance to book our place in the next round against London Colney.
Line-up: Mann, Sabag, Okito, Sedgley, Lyon, Dombaxe, Gangadeen, Chrysanthou, Benmansour, Lukulay (Londono, Odusaga), Sanchez (Mulholland)
Subs not used: Milton, North, Elliott, Kimpioka
