FC Halifax 2 Maidstone United 1
Maidstone's FA Trophy run is over after FC Halifax scored an
injury-time winner on Tuesday night.
The second round tie was heading for a replay at the Gallagher
Stadium until Halifax striker Gareth Seddon pounced with seconds to
spare to secure a 2-1 victory for the Blue Square Bet North
United fell behind inside five minutes when Seddon struck and
with only one available striker in Ian Draycott, they looked set to
be in for a long night.
But on-loan Gillingham midfielder Alex Brown
(pictured) equalised on 23 minutes and Stones enjoyed the best
of the chances before half-time against opponents who play two
leagues above them.
Maidstone boss Jay Saunders tweeted: "Gutted! Proud of the boys,
they were a credit to themselves and the club tonight. And thank
you to the supporters who were different class."
