The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Roy Mitchard

A CLOSELY con­tested cup tie was set­tled by a goal on the hour by Orlando Smith.

Smith re­cov­ered from a 44th minute head­first dive over the ad­ver­tis­ing hoard­ings to vol­ley the ball home from a David Martin cross.

Both de­fences had looked com­pact, but Smith had a 13th minute op­por­tu­nity to put Margate ahead when he beat the off­side trap to slip

the ball past Ross Hamp­ton, but hit the post.

Kings cre­ated good chances be­fore the in­ter­val, but Len­nie Pidge­ley pulled off a su­perb save from a Mitchell Weiss thun­der­bolt and a rasp­ing goal-bound Cal­lum Ade­biyi shot was de­flected just past the post.

Kings con­tin­ued to bat­tle hard, but their cause was doomed when Em­manuel Fo­larin re­ceived his sec­ond yel­low ten min­utes from the end as Lan­g­ley went out.
