EMIRATES F.A CUP – EXTRA PRELIMINARY ROUND
O.N CHENECKS (1) 2 v GODMANCHESTER ROVERS (1) 3
Chenecks; Burrows 8 Diamond 88
Godmanchester; Hall 32 Munro 63 Dawkin 78
A decent crowd turned out at Billing Road despite the almost torrential rain that decided to drench everyone half an hour before the kick-off and was to continue right up until the 60th minute mark.
The game kicked-off in pouring rain and Godmanchester were quick to settle with Jack Chandler causing problems down the right channel. They had got the ball into the box a few times in the early stages with Chandler’s whipped ball skidding across the face of goal just ahead of James Hall’s slide the most dangerous. On 8 minutes though Chenecks finally mounted an attack and good play in the box on the right saw a low ball played across keeper Niall Conroy and Nathan Burrows slid in to turn the ball home from less than a yard out. Against the run of play but Chenecks were one-up.
