Wantage Town are through to the next round of the FA Cup after picking up a deserved 3-1 victory away to Lydney Town on Saturday.
The Freds made it through a potentially tricky tie against their fellow Hellenic Premier League opponents to secure comfortable passage to the preliminary round later this month.
Wantage made a fast start and were 1-0 up after just five minutes, as a pin-point cross found Steve Robertson who headed home.
The second goal came less than a quarter of an hour later, this time courtesy of Jack Dunmall, and it was almost three before half-time as another cross this time just eluded Robertson.
Lydney were struggling to provide any opposition and although they did start to pose more of a threat towards the end, Dunmall put the tie to bed with his second and Wantage’s third five minutes from time.
The hosts were able to grab a late consolation goal through Pete Macklin, but Wantage were never really under threat and will now face Kidlington in the preliminary round on August 19.
However Ardley United won’t be progressing any further after they were beaten 3-1 at home to Baldock Town.
Billy Gillett scored Ardley’s goal from the penalty spot, but it’s a disappointing early exit for the north Oxfordshire side.
Thame United, Didcot Town and North Leigh will enter the competition at the prelimary round stage. Thame visit Uxbridge, Didcot travel to Flackwell Heath, while North Leigh are away to Highmoor Ibis.
