CHURCH PRE­VAIL IN TRUE THRILLER

GRANTHAM TOWN 3 ALVECHURCH 4

The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Pat Nixon

GRANTHAM went out of the FA Cup to Alvechurch by the odd goal in seven.

Alvechurch made the per­fect start with a goal from Babu­car Sauane in the first minute.

Josh March made it two from the penalty spot on 31 min­utes be­fore Grantham’s Ste­fan Galin­ski pulled one back.

Alvechurch in­creased their lead be­fore half time when March took ad­van­tage of a de­fen­sive er­ror.

Another goal was pulled back on 74 min­utes when Rhys Lewis headed home a free-kick, with Grantham push­ing for­ward for an equaliser, only to be caught on the break by Luke Yates.

Grantham added a third from Jeremiah Dasaolu in added time, but it wasn’t enough for the come­back.
