Hur­ley hop­ing FA Cup penalty shootout win will be a boost

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

ANDY Hur­ley hopes their FA Cup penalty shoot out win over Mar­low will give his young Bea­cons­field SYCOB side a much-needed con­fi­dence booster, writes Tim Street.

SYCOB found themselves 2-0 down in­side 22 min­utes of Tues­day night’s re­play, but fought back through goals from Nathan Min­has and Ol­lie McCoy, then fell be­hind again in ex­tra time be­fore Char­lie Losasso equalised once more with a minute left.

Mar­low then missed two of the penal­ties be­fore McCoy bagged the win­ning one as SYCOB took the tie 4-3 on spot kicks to net a cheque for £2,000 and a first qual­i­fy­ing round clash at fel­low South­ern League side Wan­tage Town.

Joint-man­ager Hur­ley said: “It was one of those nights when you’re up one minute, down the next and then up again.

“But the lads showed great spirit, which will hope­fully stand them in good stead and show what they are ca­pa­ble of.

“We’ve lost three of our last four games through mis­takes in the last minute, so hope­fully this will be a turn­ing point for us.

“The money for mak­ing the next round will help us no end too, and while it would be nice to go fur­ther, we have a lot of hard work to do first, and need to get some league points on the board.”

Goals from Losasso and Spencer Maw had seen SYCOB come from be­hind in the first game on Satur­day, be­fore Mar­low snatched a last-gasp equaliser to take the tie to a re­play.

Bea­cons­field re­turn to South­ern One Cen­tral ac­tion over the bank hol­i­day week­end when they host Bed­ford on Satur­day be­fore vis­it­ing Kidling­ton on Mon­day.

In the goals: Ol­lie McCoy
