The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Kelsey DeMaria

HUNGER­FORD TOWN joint-bosses Jon Board­man and Ian Her­ring cel­e­brated be­ing of­fi­cially handed the reins by sweep­ing past Glouces­ter City.

The pair have been con­firmed, with Gary Mac­Don­ald their as­sis­tant, as Bobby Wilkin­son’s re­place­ments fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful care­taker spell.

The Tigers were made to pay for some poor de­fend­ing by lively Ni­cholas Big­nall, as he got in be­hind de­fence be­fore round­ing keeper Tom Hadler and ap­ply­ing a smart fin­ish.

Sam Avery was then was sent for an early bath by the ref­eree af­ter foul­ing Ste­fan Brown in the box, al­though it ap­peared the Hunger­ford man had tripped on the ball.

The striker stepped up, and sent Hadler the wrong way from the spot just be­fore half-time.

It was game over for the Tigers on 69 min­utes when a clear­ance was sliced and dropped straight to the feet of Brown who slot­ted home for his sec­ond of the af­ter­noon.

Hadler was the only man stand­ing in the way of the score­line be­com­ing em­bar­rass­ing for City, as he pulled off a string of good saves to­wards the end of the game.
