FA Cup Round Up

Seventeen Thurlow Nunn League sides have won their Extra Preliminary Round ties to reach the Preliminary Round on 24th August.

March Town United beat Premier Division leaders Norwich United 2-1, Barkingside overcame Stansted 4-1, Harwich & Parkeston left Ilford with a 2-1 victory, Halstead Town won 3-1 at Sawbridgeworth Town. and White Ensign beat Woodford Town after a replay that went to extra time.

Josh Mayhew scored a hat trick for Stowmarket Town in the biggest win, 6-0 away to Clapton. The highest attendance was probably the 300 plus at Mulbarton Wanderers, who made their FA Cup debut with a 0-0 draw against Boston Town, before losing out in a Lincolnshire replay.
