Aveley 4 London Colney 2

F A Cup replay

Mike Jones reports

Shortly after picking up the trophy for team performance of the month for Aveley’s demolition ok Kingstonian 6-1 ,Rod Stringer witnessed one of the worst first half performances since he took charge of the club

Only a few days earlier Aveley had earned a draw away at London Colney and this replay should have seen the Millers ease through. But early defensive mistakes saw the team trail at half time two goals down

Rod delivered a rare hairdryer of a team talk and almost instantly the enthusiastic crowd saw the difference . It was a fabulous comeback and once the first goal had netted you just knew there were more to come. Well done to Rod and his team

Aveley will now face Burnham in the next round of the cup on the 26th September

We spoke to a breathless Rod after the game
