Watch all the goals from Fairford Town’s dramatic 3-2 win against Enfield in the FA Cup extra preliminary round.
Jody Bevan’s in-form Fairford side produced a Jekyll & Hyde performance as they ensured their name was in the hat for the next round of the FA Cup.
Two early goals from Connor Thompson capped off a superb first-half performance which saw Fairford go into the break 2-0 up and cruising to victory.
Connor’s brother Mason had also been influential in the first half but both picked up knocks and ruled out of the second half, replaced by Danny Gudger and Jon Thomas.
A disastrous start to the second half though almost cost Fairford dear with Joe Jones scoring twice to haul Enfield level.
Fairford though rallied and grabbed a winner when man-of-the-match Ben Lodge made the most of an Enfield defensive mix-up to score into an empty net from an acute angle.
With five minutes remaining, Fairford were reduced to 10 men when Kallum Thomas was sent off for a second bookable offence but despite Enfield pushing hard for another equaliser, Bevan’s men held on to book their place in the next round.
Royal Wootton Bassett and Shrivenham meanwhile both drew 1-1 and home in the competition against Ayelsbury Vale and Holmer Green respectively. Both now faces replays in the midweek.
Bassett’s replay means Tuesday night’s scheduled local derby at Fairford has now been postponed.
