Stone Earns Oaks Replay

Sunday, August 30, 2015

Adrian Stone's stoppage-time strike kept Sevenoaks Town in the FA Cup.

 

They looked destined for an early exit against Kent Invicta League Seven Acre & Sidcup until Stone blasted home a late equaliser - and earn a replay at Thamesmead on Wednesday night.

 

The visitors - playing park football six years ago - were making their debut in the competition and the first Kent Invicta League Club to feature. 

 

Tony Fenech fired them in front after fifteen minutes with a firm left foot finish - but finished the match in goal after Charlie Martin suffered a suspected broken left arm with 25 minutes remaining.

 

Adrian Stone fired wide of the far post after three minutes, then saw another effort ruled out for offside.

 

The visitors then celebrated a third milestone - their first FA Cup goal, going in front after fifteen minutes.

 

Town's new signing Chan Quan then missed a great chance, firing over from close-range.

 

Second half saw Damian Ramsamy shoot wide, before Stroud tipped over another effort at the other end.

 

Micky Collins made a double change just past the hour mark, sending on Austin Gacheru and Steve Camacho to replace Quan and Martin Debrah.

 

Three minutes later, Charlie Martin needed lengthy treatment after injuring his hand in a collision, before deciding he couldn't continue.

 

Town skipper Jon Lord headed another chance wide, before Seven Acre went close again.

 

The game was two minutes into stoppage-time when Stone pulled them level with a low finish - and there was still time for him to see another effort deflected wide for a corner.

 

Game over - there was a fly past over Greatness Park by the Red Arrows on their way back to Biggin Hill from the Herne Bay Airshow.

 

Sadly for Town they hardly got off the ground all afternoon, and were very fortunate to earn a replay.
