Wednesday 3rd October
FA YOUTH CUP 2nd QUALIFYING ROUND
BRENTWOOD TOWN 1 – 1 GRAYS ATHLETIC
(after extra time, Brentwood Town won 4-3 on penalties)
Brentwood Town Under-18s progressed through another round of the FA Youth Cup with a penalty shootout win over local rivals Grays at the Brentwood Arena on Wednesday night.
Both goals came within the space of two minutes in the first half, Codei Michael putting Grays ahead in the 26th minute and Brandon Wood quickly replying for Brentwood.
Both goalkeepers were in good form to prevent any more scoring in the 120 minutes of play, but it was the home side that narrowly won the shootout with Elliot Long cooling converting the winning penalty.
We will now be at home to Saffron Walden Town in the 3rd qualifying round during the week beginning Monday 15th October.
