The first team progressed into the final qualifying round of the FA Cup this afternoon courtesy of a comfortable 3-0 win over AFC Rushden & Diamonds at SJP.

Whilst the visitors were the brighter at the start, the Greens grew into the game and gradually took control, and were rewarded in the 36th minute when Karl Oliyide scored.

The Greens continued to put pressure on the fragile Diamonds defence, and Spencer McCall doubled the lead in the 57th minute, whilst Niko Muir finished off a good move in the 79th minute to complete the scoring.

It was a very professional organised performance, with everyone making a positive contribution.

The draw for the Fourth Qualifying Round will be broadcast live on TalkSport on Monday morning at approximately 11.30am. It will also be tweeted live by the FA, and we'll bring news of the draw through our usual channels as soon as we can.
