Chorley out of the cup

FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round Replay

Chorley 0 AFC Fylde 1

AFC Fylde got revenge for the play-off defeat on the last day of the season with a late winner at Victory Park.

It was the second consecutive season that Chorley crashed out of the FA Cup in the first stage.

Lee Thorpe’s 88th minute goal was the difference between the two sides and the Magpies did not have any time to respond.

Andrew Russell, Lee McEvilly and Dale Whitham all had chances to break the deadlock in the first half.

After the interval Tom Walker and Tom Williams went close in the second period.

Goalkeeper Russell Saunders had another great game between the sticks for the Magpies but he was powerless to watch Thorpe’s goal sail into the net.
