With the Third Qualifying Round of this season’s Emirates F.A. Cup scheduled for this midweek, there were a limited number of Pitching In Isthmian League Premier games, with just three taking place.

On Monday, Carshalton Athletic went to the top of the table following a 3-1 win over Horsham, although they only stayed there for twenty-four hours! Thomas Day and a Rob O’Toole own goal gave ‘The Robins’ a two-goal advantage at half-time, which Omar Koroma increased to three ten minutes after the break. A penalty in the ninetieth minute from Charlie Harris gave ‘The Hornets’ a late consolation.

On Tuesday, following a 2-1 home win against Folkestone Invicta, Cheshunt replaced ‘The Robins’ at the summit. Mo Camara gave ‘The Ambers’ the lead after seven minutes, only for David Smith to equalise for the visitors a minute into the second half, but Adam Cunnington then struck the winner with twelve minutes to go.

The other game saw Enfield Town come from behind to beat Kingstonian by the same score at home and move up to fifth. Corie Andrews gave ‘The Ks’ the lead seven minutes before half time, but this was cancelled out by Billy Bricknell five minutes into the second half, before Joshua McLeod Urquhart scored the decisive goal two minutes from time.

Of the four Premier Division clubs remaining in this season’s competition, it was finally good news for the Isthmian League as three of the four got through, whilst the other was unlucky to go out on penalties.

Three of the games were played on Tuesday and in one of the most eventful of the evening, Cray Wanderers progressed by virtue of a 4-2 penalty shoot-out win following a 3-3 draw at Bristol Manor Farm of the Southern League Division One South. ‘The Wands’ got off to a flying start, as goals from Ben Mundele and Freddie Parker put them two ahead after just eleven minutes, but their opponents then pulled a goal back a minute later. On the stroke of half-time, Parker added his second to increase the Premier Division side’s lead to 3-1, however in the aftermath of that goal, the home side’s goalkeeper and Mundele were shown straight red cards. The home side then came back strongly after the break, and two goals in the first twenty-five minutes of the second half saw the sides level at 3-3, and with no further goals ‘The Wands’ went through on penalties.

In a less dramatic tie, Haringey Borough eased past South Central Division Bracknell Town, winning 5-1 at home. Rakim Richards and Alfred Bawling put the home side in charge by the break and although their opponents pulled a goal back early in the second half, ‘The Boro’ scored three more, through Georgios Aresti, Jorge Djassi-Sambu and Daniel Akindayini to register a comfortable victory.

Hornchurch were the only Premier Division side to go out of the competition, but they put up a brave fight before losing 4-3 on penalties at National League South, Hampton & Richmond Borough. The home side held a 1-0 lead at half-time, but two goals in the first ten minutes after the break from Chris Dickson and Ellis Brown, put ‘The Urchins’ 2-1 ahead and they held out until their opponents equalised just four minutes from the end to take the game to the penalty shoot-out.

On Wednesday, Bishop’s Stortford progressed with a straightforward 3-0 home win against Royston Town of the Southern League Premier Division Central. Frankie Merrifield, who has hit a real purple patch at the moment, scored a goal in each half, before Correy Davidson completed the scoring three minutes from time.

As well as the Premier Division clubs, there were several of the Isthmian League Step 4 clubs competing in the Emirates F.A. Cup Second Qualifying Round and their results were as below, as you can see a number (five) got through to the next round.

By contrast, the other Kent sides who played during the week all had miserable times and all four were knocked out. Whilst SCEFL Premier Division sides Chatham United and Sheppey United could have an excuse as they were away at National League South clubs Havant & Waterlooville and Eastbourne Borough, Ebbsfleet United and Maidstone United will be hugely disappointed. ‘The Fleet’ lost 9-8 on penalties following a 1-1 draw at home against Chippenham Town of the same Division, whilst ‘The Stones’ also succumbed, again losing on penalties, this time 3-1 after a 2-2 draw at Wimbourne Town of the Southern League Division One South & West.

The draw for the Fourth Round Qualifying, when the National League sides make an appearance, will be aired live on talkSPORT2 from 1pm on Thursday 15th October. With the demise of Macclesfield Town, one team will get a bye including the prize money and a place in the First Round Proper. However, with all games above Step 3 being played behind closed doors, the money-spinning ties won’t exist as they have done previously this time round.
