Wymondham Town A 2, Morley Village Res 3
A closely fought fifth round cup-tie at Browick Road Rec saw Morley come from behind to snatch a last minute winner and book a place in the semi-finals of the Ben Smith Memorial Cup. With both sides taking their time to settle a Morley counter attack was intercepted by Key whose slotted pass through the advancing defence allowed Joyce to muscled his way onto the ball and lob it in via the post for Wymondham to take the lead. With this being the home team's first game for five weeks their match rustiness was always liable to give Morley opportunities and after a series of attacking moves the equaliser was forced in. Wymondham's half-time formation changes tried to alter the flow of the game but instead the visitors took the lead when a fierce, close range header was parried by keeper Guy and the ball lashed into the net. Gray latched onto a low Clarke throw down the right but his low cross was cut out with Stone lurking dangerously and then several set pieces gave Wymondham hope until a long corner was turned back into the danger area by Amblin where Bird reacted quickest to poke home. With both teams keen to avoid extra time a swift counter attack found the home defence outnumbered and unable to prevent Morley's late, late winner.
