The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Mike Draxler

A SEC­OND half strike from Sam Hig­gins was enough to earn Na­tional League South side East Thurrock a place in the next round of the FA Cup.

Biggleswade Town had the bet­ter of the match in the first half when Con­nor Hall hit the bar from his own cor­ner.

As the game me­an­dered to­wards a re­play, Hig­gins struck the decisive blow on 65 min­utes when he found him­self free at the far post to chin the ball over the line.

The home side went in search of equaliser im­me­di­ately in a bid to keep their FA Cup run alive but strug­gled to break their op­po­nents down

Gavin Hoyte, who was im­pres­sive, al­most equal­ized in the dy­ing sec­onds but put the ball over the bar.
