FA Cup Preliminary Round
Saturday 16 August 2014
Beckenham Town 1 Eastbourne Town 3
Eastbourne Town won through to the next preliminary round of the FA Cup in an ill tempered cup tie at Beckenham Town.
The first half was scrappy with Town's best chance Kenny Pogue hitting the post. There were yellow cards for both sides with Beckenham's Frankie Warren getting a red midway through the half. Though down to ten men Beckenham managed to hold on to half time without conceding.
The start of the second also saw yellow cards flourished but the extra man told and after 69 minutes Matt MacLean put Eastbourne ahead. McLean then got a second and it looked like it was all over for ten men Beckenham. However their fighting spirit saw them pull one back through Humphries. This led to a frantic end to the game with Eastbourne's Adam Davidson receiving a controversial red card but a final goal from Danny Ellis made it safe for Eastbourne.
Eastbourne Town now play away at Burgess Hill Town on Saturday 30 August 2014 in the next round.
