Ashton Athletic win thrilling FA Cup tie

2 years ago By The Yellows

FT Ashton Athletic 2 Worksop Town 2 (4-1 on Pens)

Ashton Athletic go through to the next round of the FA Cup after a superb game at Brocstedes Park.

Goals in the 90 minutes from Adam Gilchrist and a last minute equaliser from Danny Regan saw the deadlock continue following on from Sunday's draw at Worksop. Extra time now beckoned.

Another 30 minutes couldn't separate the sides and so we were left with the dreaded penalties.

Fortunately for the nerves of the spectators, Ashton came into their own in the shoot out, never missing a penalty. Martin Pearson also made two fantastic saves to pile the pressure onto the Town players making it 4 pens to 1 in the end.

The next round beckons and with a performance and team spirit like that who knows how far this team can go.

Come On You Yellows!!
