Young Cards ease through in FA Youth Cup

Alan Barnes - 10th September 2015

Young Cards ease through in FA Youth Cup Dorking 0 Woking 3
FA Youth Cup Preliminary Round
9th September 2015

A fine evening and a well-grassed pitch saw Woking move comfortably into the next round of the FA Youth Cup.

The home side were the first to show when a shot from Andrew Kehl went wide.
However Woking, with their superior passing game, soon got into their stride, leaving Dorking struggling to gain any meaningful possession.

Miquel Anderson was lively down the right and caused problems to the Dorking defence. He forced a number of corners from which Woking came close to opening the scoring.

Dorking mustered the occasional break but failed to cause any problems for the Young Cards' defence. George Brown, at the heart of the Woking back line, showed a good range of passing, particularly from deep positions. It was mainly due to the alertness of Tobias Barnett in the home goal that the game remained goalless
in the opening twenty minutes or so.

However the opening goal, which Woking's superior play merited, came on the half-hour after a great pass out of defence was latched onto by Connor Westney who ran on to place a confident shot beyond the 'keeper.

A second goal for the visitors arrived ten minutes later when Marlon Pinder ended a mazy run by placing the ball low into the corner of the net.

Half-time: Dorking 0 Woking 2

Dorking started the second period in a more positive manner and had a couple of early chances, one being easily saved by Luke Terry before a long range free kick sailed harmlessly over the bar. A good cross from the right was then grabbed by the Woking 'keeper before it could do any damage.

With a number of changes being made by both sides, the game became somewhat disjointed. The visitors then worked a good opening only for the final shot to go just wide.

The young Cards seemed happy enough to settle for the two goals, before a fine move from back to front ended with Pinder settling matters with a fine third goal and his second of the night.

All in all, a good result for Woking who will be at home to Corinthian Casuals in the next round.

Woking: Luke Terry, Jake Treagus (Daniel Boatang 60), Tom Stephens, Dan Mahoney, George Brown, Joe Stochetti, Miquel Anderson, Shay Daniel, Connor Westney (Declan Appou 70), Marlon Pinder, Matt Russell (Adam Bond 60)

My Man of the Match: George Brown
