Gary McCann was delighted with the performance and result of the FA Cup victory against Cheshunt. He said: "I thought it was a really dominant performance. I felt one like this was coming.

"That late equaliser in the game against Burgess Hill, and the five minutes after that, gave us some confidence. It was a bit of a turning point and we carried that on at Merstham, when we got our first win, and then also getting the draw with Dulwich.

"In fact, I think we should have scored more than the five we managed on Saturday. There wasn't a bad performance from anyone, but my man of the match was Kevin Maclaren, who was outstanding.

"I must also add mention of the performances of the two young centre backs who belied their years. There were some great team goals, but Mayo's was special.

"The only disappointment was the two goals that we conceded at the end of each half. Although we defended well in open play, our defending at set-pieces wasn't to the required level.

"Three of our four defenders are 20, 19 and 19 - and eight of the starting 11 were under 23 - so we are a very young and relatively inexperienced side."
