Kings Langley FC have reached he Third Qualifying Round of the FA cup for the first time in their history after a 4-0 win over Folkstone Invicta this weekend (Saturday, September 21), with Watford FC great Lloyd Doyley stealing the headlines.
Kings Langley FC’s week may not have gone to script, with manager Dean Barker departing unexpectedly, but this matchup certainly did as Kings Langley steamrolled over their BetVictor Isthmian League opponents in style.
The Lango’s new high-profile defender, Doyley, set the tone in 24th minute as he scored a delightful top corner strike in his sixth appearance for the club – 263 less than it took him to get his first for Watford!
It only got better from there. While the home side went into the second half with just a slender 1-0 lead, Mitchell Weiss doubled it in the 54th minute from just a yard out after Pattison’s shot from a tight angle fell to him.
Kings left it until the 88th to get a third. Matty Campbell-Mhlope – he played the ball over the defenders to leave Charlie Ruff in space, who volleyed it at the ‘keeper, but the ball trickled under him, and Campbell-Mhlope continued his run to smash the ball home from about 20cm out.
Charlie Ruff got the final goal for himself just minutes later – all the defenders stopped as they thought he was offside and he took full advantage by firing it home.
Kings will take on their next opponents in the competition on October 5.
