FA Youth Cup Third Qualifying Round

With a match played in sweeping rain and a slippery pitch, keeping your feet was a priority. But Woking moved smoothly into the 1st round proper with no slip ups away at Aylesbury.

This young Cards side were soon into their stride and had the first shot from Ndjeka which went narrowly wide. Woking were finding success down both flanks and crosses were coming in at regular intervals

Aylesbury had a couple of chances early on but there were dealt with by Allen in the Woking goal.

The breakthrough came on twenty minutes. Manderson was found with a good pass. He cut inside and put a firm shot from twenty yards beyond the home keeper.

The home side found it difficult to get past Lobonza and Young at the heart of the Woking defence and Allen in goal easily fielded the odd one that got through.

Twenty minutes into the game Taylor was brought down just inside the area. Ndjeka took the penalty which was saved but he had plenty of time to sidefoot the rebound home.

Half time: Aylesbury 0 Woking 2.

The second half saw Woking dominate possession without being able to add to their score. Chances were created at regular intervals but the finishing was not up to the standard of the approach play and the home keeper played his part in preventing any further additions to the score.

Aylesbury had a few efforts but were never able to turn them into goals with the best chance coming inside the last ten minutes. A corner on the right was headed against the bar but Allen was able to grab the rebound.

This was a job well done for the young Cards and overall they can be very pleased with their performance that sees them progress to a First Round tie away to Carshalton Athletic.
