Evans above – Spenny lose late on

Sunday Sun - - Football -

SPENNYMOOR Town fell at the first hur­dle in this sea­son’s FA Cup, as a late Ioan Evans goal put Gains­bor­ough Trin­ity into the third qual­i­fy­ing round.

But they had to come from be­hind as the Moors took the lead in the first half.

Glen Tay­lor pro­duced some mem­o­rable FA Cup mo­ments last sea­son for the Moors and he was at it again in the 18th minute.

The striker was found by mid­fielder Rob Ramshaw and was given time to look up and smash the ball past Trin­ity keeper Ravas.

The vis­i­tors had to work hard to stay in the game just min­utes af­ter Tay­lor’s opener. Some des­per­ate de­fend­ing de­nied Mark An­der­son and Joe Tait in quick suc­ces­sion as the Moors looked to press home their ad­van­tage.

Jamie Chan­dler could and should have dou­bled the lead 10 min­utes be­fore half-time.

The for­mer Gateshead man was played in on goal but sent his ef­fort well wide of Ravas’ goal.

Ramshaw was de­nied by the Trin­ity keeper on the stroke of half-time so the Moors went into the break with a one-goal ad­van- tage. The vis­i­tors started the sec­ond half on top and were back on level terms when Ash Wors­fold blasted a shot into the top cor­ner of Jor­dan Porter’s net.

David Fo­ley was de­nied by a fine Ravas save as the Moors looked to re­claim the lead and Chan­dler went close in the clos­ing stages.

How­ever, it was the vis­i­tors that went through as Evans met a Craig King cross and curled the ball home.
