Wealdstone booked their place in the next round of the Ryman League Cup after a 3-2 home win over Ramsgate on Monday night.

There was a first start of the season for Polish striker Jacek Magdzinski who partnered Shabazz Baidoo up front.

Wealdstone created their first opportunity after 11 minutes but Baidoo’s strike was straight at goalkeeper Danny Twyman.

Magzdinski should have scored midway through the half after being put through on goal but he fired wide of the target.

Gordon Bartlett’s side broke the deadlock just before the half-hour mark when Magdzinski bundled the ball over the line from close range.

The Stones doubled their lead before the break when Twyman spilled the ball into the path of Baidoo and he took advantage tapping into the empty net.

Ramgate pulled one back 15 minutes from time when Ben Laslett headed home.

But Wealdstone restored their two-goal cushion after Nathan Webb threaded the ball through to Baidoo and he calmly lofted the ball over the goalkeeper.

The visitors netted a second goal in injury time when substitute Ian Pulman scored but the Stones held out to reach the third round.

Wealdstone endured a frustrating afternoon on Saturday as they were held 2-2 at home to Ryman Premier bottom club Thurrock.

The visitors started the brighter of the two sides and took the lead in the first half when Sam Berry’s shot was parried and Charlie Stimson tapped in.

Kurtney Brooks equalised before the break with a deflected 25-yard strike.

An own goal from Laurence Yiew put Wealdstone in command but a late goal from Matt Pooley earned Thurrock a point.
