The Non-League Football Paper - - FA TROPHY SECOND ROUND PROPER - By Sheri­dan Robins

WE­STON-SU­PER-MARE will have to make the mam­moth 620-mile round trip to Workington on Tues­day af­ter the Evo-Stik Premier side de­servedly held their Na­tional League South hosts.

Scott Al­li­son’s 65th-minute ef­fort can­celled out Jar­rad Welch’s opener for We­ston in a clas­sic game of two halves.

The Seag­ulls had the first and af­ter Jake Lee fired a shot over it was they who broke the dead­lock on 16 min­utes when Danny Greenslade’s corner was half-cleared to Tris­tan Plum­mer, whose mishit shot fell nicely to Welch who fired home with an ex­cel­lent fin­ish.

Workington, how­ever, got bet­ter as the match wore on and al­most equalised through Nathan Water­ston’s shot which was cleared off the line by Har­vey Smith al­most straight from the kick-off.

Then, on 65 min­utes, Workington – who beat Na­tional League side Hartle­pool in the first round – got the lev­eller they de­served when Water­son’s ex­cel­lent cross found Al­li­son, who slot­ted home from close range.

The vis­i­tors looked more likely to snatch vic­tory late on but We­ston held firm to earn them­selves a long mid­week trip.

STAR MAN: Nathan Water­son (Workington) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
