Two trips up the M40 in four days for Wokingham & Emmbrook and still 180 minutes of FA Cup football couldn’t separate the Sumas and Easington Sports in the Extra Preliminary Round.

Liam Eagle scored Wokingham’s goal in the original match at Easington but the hosts forced a replay on Tuesday night – also at Easington due to the unavailability of Lowther Road.

The FA Cup replay finished goalless despite the late efforts of Nathan Mindomba and Jake White who combined for a good chance toward the end of the game while Sean Woodward was kept alert in the Sumas goal.

So to penalties it went, with White, Jack Mullan and Callum Eagle converting but the Oxfordshire side edged it 4-3 to setup a tie with Cinderford Town in the Preliminary Round.
