F.A.Cup Extra Pre-Liminary Round Replay
Wellington 3 v 2 Coleshill Town

Coleshill still haven't managed to win an FA Cup game but they couldn't have come closer to finally making history. Josh McPherson returned to the side after missing Saturday's game and Ryan Gardiner came in for Ant McManus.

Coleshill started well and should have had the game rapped up by half time. Danny Carter scored on 23 mins but Coleshill also hit the bar and the post but couldn't put the tie to bed. As in the first game Wellington got stronger as the game went on, their team sprit and hard work slowly gave them the upper hand. Saul scored on 58 mins and Jones, a scorer in the first game gave the home team the lead. Coleshill tried to get back into the game but their three at the back always looked vunerable to a brake away and it came as no surprise when Craig increased Wellington's lead on 85mins. There was still time for Carter to reduce the deficit on 89mins but Wellington held on to go into the next round to play Rocester.

*Wellington Lost 1-0 at Rocester.

Team:- Greg Allen, Sam Chatwin, Rob Hipkiss, Ryan Gardiner, James Dance, Neil Kitching, Josh McPherson, David Brush, Michael Campbell, Danny Carter, Kevin Wagstaff. Subs Oluwaseyi Morgan, Radolph Richards, Simon Volante, Dan Greaves, Craig Jones.
