Bracknell Town will join Slough Town and Hungerford Town in the draw for the Second Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup after a 4-1 win away at Ashford United in Kent on Tuesday night.
It was two goals each for Robins Seb Bowerman and captain Max Herbert, the former ‘terrifying’ the United defence according to our man on the scene Tony Hardy.
United pulled it back to 2-1 after the break but a Bowerman penalty and another from Herbert settled the tie with Hardy saying: “Seb Bowerman terrified them. The midfield three of Herbert, Louis Soares and Scott Rees were superb. Quite impressed with Dan Baylis and Caden Genovesi at the back too.”
Elsewhere it was over and out for Binfield who were beaten 2-0 at Whyteleafe but left nothing on the field according to co-boss Carl Withers who tweeted that he could not be prouder of his side and the shift they put in. You can read the full report here.
