Evans above – Spenny lose late on
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.
