SUFC 1 Crawley 1 FA CUP
The wonder of the FA Cup came to Roots Hall as the Mighty Shrimpers sought to banish their shocking Cup record against – A: a side a division below Blues and B: a side with a cup record as rubbish as the Blues. Nick Prawnby, Fish Walsh and James Anchovy had a pukka view from the South Upper
First half and Blues are tearing Crawleech apart. Coxy after just a few minutes and then Macca, Theo and Coxy again all miss good chances as ex-Blue Morris is kept busy as he picks the ball out of the net from Kights shot for 1-0 Blues. But gradually the half fizzles out with Crawleech hanging on but it’s only 1-0.at halfo.
Second half and Crawleech sense that Blues are sitting back, they come on strong, literally, with the big lump No9 up front giving Whitey grief. No surprise when they equalise with 5 mins to go with a Whitey OG. Bunn on for Theo and hardly touched the ball, Morris doesn’t have a shot to save. Well poor 2nd half and it’s a replay at Crawleech.
