Saturday 16 August, Takeley 2 London Tigers 2, FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round - Station Road
With the season only a week old we are already into the first games of the FA Cup/ I started this years competition with a drive into Essex and a visit to Takeley (close to Stansted Airport). I found a great little ground which has been improved beyond recognition over the last two years.
Takeley just need to get it together on the pitch and they will soon be leaving the Essex Senior League maybe upwards to the Ryman League.
But in this cup they were lucky to get a replay as the London Tigers had played the better football but a last minute equaliser will see a replay needed next week to separate the teams.
What we did see on top of some classy football were 3 outstanding goals with the second goal for the Tigers being the pick of the bunch.
Almost forgot, a great cup of tea and a tasty burger but please turn the PA down!
