PURITANS MARCH INTO NEXT ROUND

The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Dave Pearce

BANBURY got back to win­ning ways as they despatched Thatcham Town to progress to Mon­day’s draw.

Thatcham de­fender Henry Owen nearly put his ball in his own net from a Tom Win­ters cross.

Banbury took the lead with three min­utes of the half left when a free kick from Win­ters into the Thatcham box saw a loop­ing header by cap­tain Luke Par­nell to score.

In the sec­ond half Banbury didn’t al­low Thatcham to set­tle and made it num­ber two on 47 min­utes.

A cor­ner from Win­ters found Pond who crouched low to head in from 10 yards out.
