FA Youth Cup 2nd Qualifying Round

Woking eased through to play either Poole Town or Chippenham Town away in the next round of the FA Youth Cup after seeing off their West Sussex opponents in a competitive encounter.
Both sides had spells of pressure in an entertaining game as they moved the ball around on the slick surface after heavy rain had fallen for much of the day.

The visitors were the first to show with Sam O’Brien having a smart shot well saved by the home 'keeper before a further couple of efforts went just wide.

It was then the turn of the home side to get in on the act as Alex Harris was forced into a good save at the other end. From the resulting corner, the ball was headed off the line.

The home side were forced to defend well and in numbers, getting several blocks in to prevent Woking shots reaching goal as the visitors piled on the pressure.

The best effort for Woking came after half an hour when, from a cross, Sam O’Brien glanced his shot off a post and behind for a goal kick.

The defining moment of the game came just before the break, when Jack Sutton for the home side prevented a Woking break by bringing down Jake Gill. Being the last defender, the referee had no option other than to brandish a red card.

Half-time: Burgess Hill 0 Woking 0

The match took on a different complexion in the second half with the home side a man down and unable to get forward as they had done before the break.

Woking made the most of their numerical advantage soon after the restart when a cross found Carlos Anderson who converted from close range.

The visitors increased their lead after sixty-five minutes when Charlie Carter picked up a loose ball before striding forward to hit a low shot just inside the post.

As the home side tired, Woking pulled further ahead thanks to goals from Jack French (two) and another from Anderson, for what eventually turned out to be a comfortable victory.

WOKING: Alex Harris, Will Bateman, John Skelton, Andrew Mills, Alex Fisher, Daniel Bedford, Carlos Anderson (Max Austin 80),Charlie Carter, Jack French, Jake Gill (Josh Bowden 45), Aaron Smith-Joseph (Sam O’Brien 80).
