Darren Lynch on their 2-0 win against Hullbridge Sports in the FA Vase

We knew it was going to be a battle against a high flying side, 2nd in the table....

Newport Pagnell Town manager Darren Lynch on their 2-0 win against Hullbridge Sports in the FA Vase:

"We travelled to Hullbridge Sports at the second attempt after last weeks postponement and knew it was going to be a battle against a high flying side sitting well placed in second place in their league? The pitch was just about playable to the credit of their ground staff but very boggy.

The first half was a typical cup tie where both teams tried to play football on that pitch with not many goal scoring opportunities.

The second half we started really well and looked really dangerous on the break and our first goal came when we broke with Dom lawless on the left and he cut in and curled the ball over the keeper to give us the lead.
We then weathered a bit of a storm and always created on the break where we missed a couple of decent chances to extend the lead, the game then stopped for around 5 mins when we lost Tom liversedge after he got a kick in the face whilst defending a corner and had too be replaced because of concussion.
The game was settled in the 88th min when josh winters done unbelievable down the right, taking on 3 players and cutting back for Harry Stratton to put the game out of sight.

I’m delighted with the result & performance and with a near enough fully fit squad for the first time this season I’m hopeful we can start climbing the UCL table."

Where next?
