Jack Currie, Elliott Bolton and David Fisher all helped their loan clubs progress to today’s FA Cup fourth qualifying round draw.
Striker Fisher came on in the 62nd minute and took just nine minutes to score Hampton & Richmond’s third goal, in a 3-1 victory over Wimborne Town on Saturday. That put the Beavers one step away from a potential meeting with league opposition in the first round proper, when The Dons enter the competition.
Defender Currie was part of a Eastbourne Borough side that came back from two down in a Sussex derby at Horsham, to set up a replay on home territory on Tuesday night after a two-all draw. Midfielder Bolton also faces a replay tomorrow night at Wingate & Finchley, after ten-men Corinthian-Casuals drew one-all in the wet and windy conditions.
Winger Dylan Adjei-Hersey played the full game for Merstham, as their gallant FA Cup run came to an end at the hands of Hereford, bowing out 2-0 at home.
Young striker Quaine Bartley gained more match time under Danny Kedwell with Cray Wanderers. Bartley came on a substitute for the last seventeen minutes, in a 3-1 victory at Carshalton Athletic in the Isthmian Premier.
Forward Corie Andrews has his weekend disrupted by the difficult conditions. Heavy rainfall at the EBB Stadium resulted in the National League game against Wrexham being called off shortly into the second half.
It was a miserable Saturday for Aaron Cosgrave. He came on as a second-half substitute for Dover, who were 5-0 down at the time on a long, away trip to Grimsby Town. They conceded another goal before the final whistle.
