The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Neil McGowan

BASFORD United reached the third qual­i­fy­ing round for the first time in their his­tory thanks to Matt Thorn­hill’s 78th minute goal.

Thorn­hill was in the right place to turn the ball in from ten yards af­ter a move in­volv­ing Con­nor Bar­tle and Kieran Wells.

In a tight game it al­ways looked as if the one goal would be enough.

Mickleover tried to put Basford un­der pres­sure af­ter the goal, forc­ing a se­ries of cor­ners, but the home team stood firm.

The visi­tors had been first to show as Jimmy Phillips forced Saul Deeney into a save within the first five min­utes.

Ben Hutchinson then just failed to make con­tact with James Reid’s cross as Basford re­sponded.
