AFC Aldermaston went out of the Bluefin Sports Hellenic League Supplementary Cup on Saturday at the first round stage via a penalty shoot-out defeat to Abingdon United.

Kai Parton-Edey and Liam Tackley both scored to take the game to penalties in a 2-2 draw after extra time but the Atomics had goalkeeper Dan Smith to thank during the game for a superb diving save during the match.

The former Bracknell Town and Highmoor-IBIS goalkeepers save was caught on camera by Abingdon supporter Mark Herring:

After the match Smith – who managed a save in the shoot-out and score one himself for Aldermaston – tweeted his best wishes to the hosts, while Atomics boss Kieran Jennings praised his players efforts and called the match ‘an exciting game for the neutral’.

Joe Cummuskey and Richard Jones were the other penalty scorers for the Atomics.

Editors note: We have tried our best to be accurate with the score in this game, but at the time of writing the FA Full Time website displays the final score at 1-1 and 5-2 on penalties, twitter says it was 5-3 on penalties and Abingdon’s twitter says 5-4.
