Simeon Townsend – Handy Townsend, more like.

Sporting Khalsa made history, reaching the Fourth Round Qualifying of the FA Cup and with the prospect of a massive home tie with either Buxton or FC United of Manchester.

Simeon Townsend grabbed the vital goal to decide this replay which saw the bizarre time wasting by Spalding in the first match well and truly come back to haunt them.

The home side seemed completely in control after Mitch Griffiths had given them the lead on 13 minutes but the dismissal of Ross Watson for a second bookable offence turned the game on its head.

Just before half-time Marvin Nisbett scored the equaliser in a crowded penalty area and then Townsend wrapped up the victory with ten minutes to go.
