Holbeach breezed through their FA Cup extra preliminary round replay last night (August 18).

The Tigers won 4-0 at Ely City to book a derby trip to Wisbech in the next round.

Josh Ford headed the Tigers in front from an Andy Tidswell free-kick after 12 minutes.

Gary King turned in an Ollie Pinner through ball three minutes after the half-hour mark and King was again on target after 70 minutes, heading in Tidswell’s set-piece delivery.

The scoring was completed five minutes from time by Ford who headed in Tom Gosling’s cross.

Stamford are still looking for their first win of the season in the Evo-Stik League Northern Premier Divison. They were beaten 3-2 at home by Rushall Olympic after going 2-1 up just before half-time with two goals inside a minute by Jordan Smith and Ryan Robbins.

In Division One South there was a first win of the campaign for Spalding as they bet Loughborough Dynamo 2-0 with goals by Josh Moreman and Jordan Nuttell.
