Allinson proud as brave Saints fall short in FA Cup goalfest

 Published on: 7th November 2016   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

St Albans manager Ian Allinson praised his players as League Two Carlisle United eventually prevailed 5-3 in the FA Cup first round at Clarence Park earlier this month. The National League South team stunned their opponents, who are unbeaten this season, in the fourth minute as the dangerous Junior Morias hammered home a 30 yard shot to put the Saints in front. Visiting keeper Mark Gillespie had to be at his best to prevent Louie Theophanous from extending the home side’s lead. Carlisle levelled the match when Danny Grainger scored from the penalty spot after 19 minutes  and the Cumbrians extended their lead early in the second half when Jason Kennedy headed them in front. Although the Saints quickly levelled through the impressive Morais, Jabo Ibhere wrapped up the game with a quick fire and Reggie Lambe netted a fifth before Theophanous scored an impressive consolation for the home team.
