Witham make Trophy progress at second time of asking
WITHAM TOWN 4
FA Trophy preliminary round
Witham Town made progress in the FA Trophy at the second time of asking as they earned a 4-2 win in their preliminary round replay at the Village Glass Stadium.
The two Ryman League division one north sides had drawn 1-1 on Saturday when Ware had snatched a late equalising goal, but Witham made sure of getting the job done this time.
They fell behind in the first half, but a 40th minute strike by Kris Newby, who had been sent off in the first game at the weekend, made it 1-1 at half-time.
However, Witham pulled ahead in the second half as first a Danny Lopes goal and then a brace by James Stevens made it 4-1 to leave Ware's late goal as little more than a consolation.
