Notts F.A. Senior Cup round 3

This was a tough game for Midland Alliance outfit Dunkirk.  Although Selston play two steps down from their opposition, they battled well and had two glorious chances to get something from the game during second half stoppage time. Unfortunately the chances went begging and Dunkirk progress into the 1/4 finals thanks to a strike from JARROD WESTCARR on the hour mark. 

The goal came after veteran defender Gary Breach was left with two attackers to take care of, and his untimely slip allowed Will Coutts gain possession and play in Westcarr who took his time  before slotting past Jake Simpson in the Selston net from 15 yards out. F-T 0-1

Admission £3 - but I attended as a guest of Referee Eddie Pidduck. The game had little to worry the experienced official - one booking for Elliott Jones I think, and a couple of injuries to oversee.

Car park: £1
