Wealdstone drawn against Lowestoft Town in FA Cup
3:26pm Wednesday 12th September 2012 in Local Sport
Wealdstone have been handed a home draw with Lowestoft Town after their 2-0 win over Biggleswade Town in the FA Cup.
The second qualifying round tie will take place on Saturday, September 22 which means their clash with Hampton & Richmond Borough will have to be rearranged.
Gordon Bartlett’s side ensured they avoided an early exit for the third consecutive year with a comfortable victory over Evo Stick Division One outfit Biggleswade.
The Stones nearly opened the scoring after just three minutes but Richard Jolly’s close-range strike cannoned off the crossbar.
Craig Daniel came close for the visitors but his shot was well saved by home goalkeeper Rikki Banks.
Prolific striker Jolly made no mistake after 17 minutes when he gave Wealdstone the lead.
Peter Dean crossed the ball into the area and Jolly placed his effort past Michael McEntegart in the Biggleswade net.
Wealdstone started the second half strongly and were rewarded with another goal.
Kurtney Brook released Jolly and he threaded the ball through to Dean who stabbed it home.
Dean had a chance to double his tally for the match late on but his shot flew wide of the target.
The Stones return to action in the league this weekend with a trip to Concord Rangers.
Meanwhile, the club will host a ‘Meet the Manager and Chairman’ event on Wednesday evening at Grosvenor Vale.
It will take place in the Aquarium Bar at 7.45pm and anyone is welcome to attend.
