Away game at Clarence Park awaits Lilywhites

Cambridge City have been handed a tricky tie in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup.

The Lilywhites produced a dominant display to beat St Neots Town 3-1 in the first qualifying round last Friday.

But their reward is a trip to St Albans City on September 16.

It is probably one of the toughest ties City could have faced as St Albans are third in the Vanarama National League South.

But manager Robbie Nightingale will no doubt be buoyed by his team’s performance against St Neots, who are a tier higher than City in the Evo-Stik League, Premier Division.

It did not take long for City to break the deadlock as Lewis Wilson poked home a loose ball from a 14th-minute corner.

It was 2-0 at half time as Ben Robinson’s surge into the area was brought to an abrupt end by Taylor Parr, and Tom Knowles converted the penalty.

And they got a third goal in the 65th minute, as Knowles used his pace to set up Salim Relizani to score.

St Neots pulled a goal back through Danny Wilson, but the match was over by that point.

City are back in league action this Saturday when they host Northwood at Westwood Road.

Meanwhile, Histon’s unbeaten run in the Thurlow Nunn League, Premier Division ended with a 3-0 defeat at Felixstowe & Walton.
