The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Al­lan Mitchell

HEMEL and Wingate & Finch­ley have to do it again on Tues­day.

Most Hemel sup­port­ers could have pre­dicted this re­sult as they have had trou­ble with lower league op­po­si­tion in the last few sea­sons.

Bostik Pre­mier Wingate could have nicked the win when an 81st minute free­kick from ex-Tu­dor Ben Pat­tie just drifted wide of the post.

The first real chance of the game came when Hemel’s Tay­lor Miles mis­cued his shot, the ball landed kindly for Rowan Liburd but his first time shot was well blocked by keeper Shane Gore.

As the half pro­gressed the vis­i­tor’s con­fi­dence grew against the Na­tional League South side and Pat­tie fired in a free kick that looked as though it was meant as a cross but it curled to­wards the goal and Lau­rie Walker did well to tip it over.

They had another chance when Pat­tie sent striker Reece Beck­lesRichard clear but his shot was again well saved by Walker.

Alex Os­born man­aged to trou­ble Gore just be­fore the break but his ef­fort was pushed away and they sides went in level.

The game didn’t re­ally im­prove in the sec­ond half, the near­est ei­ther sides came to break­ing the dead­lock came from free­kicks, Gore sav­ing su­perbly from Jor­dan Parkes and Pat­tie’s late ef­fort go­ing wide.
