Walthamstow FC vs Abbey Rangers coverage.

Today saw our first commentary in this season’s Emirates FA Cup as Wadham Lodge was the destination for Walthamstow FC vs Abbey Rangers.  Both sides are in the fifth level of non league and bidding to get into the 3rd qualifying round and also pocket £6,750 as a winners prize for todays match.

Played in glorious sunshine in E17, Marcus Cousins headed in Elliott Firth’s ball to the far post on 14 minutes before the hosts fought back.  The second half saw the hosts out of the blocks quickest with Billy Jones’ screamer from the edge of the box on 52 minutes levelling things up.  Sammi Gebrai saw his shot go over the keeper but cleared off the line whilst VAR had it been used, might have differed the view of some.

Both sides duke it out on Tuesday in the replay in Addlestone to see who gets through, but both sides will be in the hat for the 3rd Qualifying Round draw on Monday.

I would like to thank Walthamstow FC for their part in helping getting me back on air and for their as always warm welcome and help in making todays broadcast run smoothly, you can listen to it here
