Match report curtesy of Farnham Town

For this was yet another night of penalty heartbreak for Farnham Town.

Having taken the lead through, almost inevitably, Josh Ogunseye, scoring his 25th (yes, that’s 25!) goal of the season, the Town were pegged back on the stroke of half time when, from a free kick on the Farnham left, Louis Taylor was allowed to turn in the Town area and lift his shot into the net.

Currently top of the Cherry Red Records Combined Counties Premier North, Hanworth Villa represented a tough test for the Town, and it’s to their credit that they kept parity with their opponents in a tight second half.

And so, with no extra time, we went to penalties.

Which is where, with shades of Tim Krul in 2014, the Villains played their ace.

On came substitute ‘keeper Terry Buss and it would be his save, with the scores level at 7-7, that would be crucial, setting up Dapo Abitongun to score the Villiains’ eighth and send them through to the next round.
