The Non-League Football Paper - - FA TROPHY SECOND ROUND PROPER - By Steve Tervet

WAR­RING­TON came within two min­utes of caus­ing a ma­jor shock.

Ger­ard Kin­sella came off the bench to score a late goal which was no more than his side de­served.

But deep into stop­page­time Sean Shields got the Na­tional League hosts out of jail with an equaliser.

The Yel­lows were bet­ter all over the pitch and Fleet boss Daryl McMa­hon crit­i­cised his team’s workrate af­ter the game.

How­ever, they might have been ahead early on when Danny Ked­well and Luke Coulson both went close.

Free-kicks from Wil­liam Hay­hurst and Sean Wil­liams were off-tar­get as well.

Ben Ascroft saved well from Ked­well and Dave Win­field had a shot blocked.

Fleet started the sec­ond half brighter. Adam Car­den went close from a short corner and Ash­more saved from De­varn Green as War­ring­ton went for for the win­ner.

They thought they’d got it when Kin­sella touched in a left-wing cross but Shields res­cued Ebb­s­fleet with a shot into the bot­tom corner right at the death. STAR MAN: Sean Wil­liams (War­ring­ton) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
