Emirates FA Cup: Horsham YMCA 0-2 Three Bridges 1st

Bridges win and through to Preliminary Round away to Greenwich Borough

Apart from a scare in the opening 30 seconds when YMCA failed to capitalise on an excellent Dave Brown cross, the home side rarely caused Bridges any problems. Once the visitors hit their stride, they looked dangerous from every attack, particularly in the first half.

Nathan Crabb fired just wide after 5 minutes but 2 minutes later Lee Hall's free kick from the right caused mayhem in the home area andJensen Grant pounced to put his side ahead.

The constant pressure told again after 22 minutes when Abu Touray threaded the perfect ball through to the excellent Nathan Crabb who turned his man beautifully before firing past Aaron Jeal.

The giant Nathan Koo-Boothe shrugged off an early knock to see one of his headers cleared off the line after half an hour, and it was the very last kick of the half before YMCA threatened Kieron Thorp's goal as Brown's snap shot went wide of the far post.

Following excellent work by skipper Grant, Crabb fired just wide as the second half started but YMCA were offered a lifeline after 52 minutes when the otherwise outstanding Jay Conroy was just too late with a challenge on substitute Sam Schaaf that some thought was outside the box. However the referee pointed to the spot only for Thorp to make a fine save to deny Dan Evans, who had looked YMCA's best player as he raised forward from left back.

A flurry of bookings unsettled the rhythm of the game and tiredness meant a couple of substitutions. Bridges, in fact, were carrying Koo-Boothe in the final minutes, but there were so many good performances all over the pitch by Bridges that they were able to see the game out comfortably and can now look forward to a trip to Greenwich Borough on 19th August in the preliminary round.

Aerotron Man of the Match: Jay Conroy.

Stat Facts: A lot of firsts. The game marked the debuts of Liam Collins, Nathan Koo-Boothe, Connor French and substitute Daniel Lombardo, whilst it was the first time that Lee Hall, Nathan Crabb, Jensen Grant and Jay Conroy had played in a Cup tie for Bridges. And it was also Grant’s first ever goal for the side!
