Binfield’s under 18 Allied Counties Youth League side made progress in the FA Youth Cup on Thursday night at Hill Farm Lane.
The young Moles made a ‘stoke double this week following the men’s First Team win at the weekend, beating Basingstoke Town 2-1 to reach the First Qualifying Round.
The First Qualifying Round matches are due to take place from Saturday 3rd September but as it stands there doesn’t appear to have been a draw made yet.
On the night, a clinical strike from Jamie Smith put Binfield 1-0 up before a second yellow card left the Moles with 10 players on the field. A second goal before half-time though from Ben Price gave a little bit of breathing room.
The second half saw a response from Basingstoke with Binfield having to dig in after the visitors earned and converted a penalty on 50 minutes.
It was very much ‘backs to the wall’ in the second period according to coach Martin Smith who added: “Every player put in a shift to keep our lead and we deservedly held on, we’re in to the next round!”
