First Team Progress In League Cup
Wantage Edge out Pewsey Vale
Wantage progressed to the next round of the Challenge Cup with a 1-0 home victory.
The pitch wasn’t conducive to free flowing passing football and the hosts often had to take an extra touch, which contributed to a scrappy encounter. Pewsey were organised and offered a threat going forward.
The game was settled in familiar fashion in the 63rd minute. A superb ball from Jackson found Jack Dunmall in space, who controlled before slotting across to strike partner Robertson to fire home.
With Flanagan and Thorne rested and no Meare or Markham it was pleasing to progress to the next round where we will visit Wootton Bassett.
Before then we face Oxford City Nomads at home on FRIDAY 1st December, 7:45pm KO.
Wantage: Max Dunmall, Dan Comer, Paul Alder, Mark Threlfall (Dan Gardner 73), Chris Jackson, Brad Cox, Jim Glover, Ben Willoughby (Mark Flanagan 81), Steve Robertson (Jack Heap 70), Jack Dunmall, Jack Powell. Subs n/u: Joe Wood, Dan Sadler.
