IN THE HAT: Kings Langley FC progress to FA Trophy First Round

 Published on: 1st November 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Kings Langley F.C

Kings Langley progressed to the First Round Proper of the FA Trophy for the first time in their history yesterday afternoon with a 4-1 victory at home against Brightlingsea Regent.

Two goals in each half saw Langley cruise to victory with four different goal scorers chipping in.

The first of which came just after 15 minutes after Saul Williams delivered a fantastic cross for Bradley Wadkins to head home with ease.

Those two players combined once again 10 minutes later, this time it was Wadkins who found Williams in acres of space in the box and the latter made no mistake with his finish to doubled Kings’ lead.

A third goal was added just after the second half resumed after some fantastic individual play from Kyle Connolly where he ghosted past three players and finished emphatically in the top corner.

The game was put beyond any doubt after 65 minutes when Jack Wood scored the fourth goal of the day with a clever finish that went over the goalkeeper.

The away side did manage to score a consolation goal late on in the game through Lewis Byrne-Hewitt, but it was Kings who progressed to the FA Trophy First Round.

Kings are now unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions with two wins and four draws, and they’re back in action in the league on Tuesday night as they face Leiston away from home.
