Stones keep their FA Cup dreams alive with com­fort­able vic­tory over Faver­sham

Ruislip & Eastcote & Northwood Gazette - - Sport -

WEALDSTONE com­fort­ably pro­gressed to the third qual­i­fy­ing round of the FA Cup with a 4-0 vic­tory over Faver­sham Town at Grosvenor Vale on Satur­day.

A first-half dou­ble from Danny Green gave the Stones a con­fi­dent ad­van­tage and Matty Which­e­low’s goal just three min­utes into the sec­ond half ef­fec­tively snuffed out any chance of a Faver­sham come­back. Dan Fitch­ett nod­ded in the fourth.

Bobby Wilkin­son kept true to his word and played a full-strength side, mak­ing one change with the ex­pe­ri­enced Alan O’Brien mak­ing his full de­but in place of Abobaker Eisa.

Which­e­low played a through ball to Fitch­ett who let it run through his legs into the path of Green, who slot­ted past Si­mon Over­land in goal with aplomb. Green dou­bled his tally six min­utes be­fore the break af­ter he was tripped in the box. He con­verted the re­sult­ing penalty, send­ing Si­mon Over­land the wrong way.

Which­e­low then put the tie be­yond doubt when he struck three min­utes into the sec­ond half, swerv­ing in a low ef­fort in from the edge of the area.

Stones, now in com­plete con­trol, piled on the pres­sure and Which­e­low thought he had grabbed an­other when he got on the end of a deep O’Brien cross, his shot beat Over­land but some­how Matthew Bourne cleared off the line.

Fitch­ett added a fourth on 70 min­utes af­ter he headed in an inch-per­fect Ryan Sell­ers cross to net Wealdstone’s 15th home goal in three games. Man-ofthe-match Green al­most capped his day with a hat-trick when he was played in by sub­sti­tute El­liot Benyon, but Over­land tipped his low ef­fort onto the post and out.
