Buildbase FA Trophy Preliminary Round replay
Wednesday 16th October 2019



Our FA Trophy hopes came to an end at Steel Park last night as Corby progressed into the next round and a trip to Redditch United.

Jordan Crawford got the hosts off to a flyer, opening the scoring after just 8 minutes and Steve Diggin added a second with 38 minutes on the clock. Hopes of a second half comeback took a knock when John Dean made it 3-0 after 52 minutes and looked to have put the tie to bed.

With 12 minutes left though Ed Rolph’s header offered a glimmer of hope for the Stutes supporters at Steel Park and we gave it a real go, going close to reducing the lead further a couple of times but with two added minutes already played Rev James smashed a shot from the edge of the area into the top corner and that was that.
