FA Cup: First Round Flashback

See how Harriers fared in Round One back in 2008/09

Striker Justin Richards climbs and battles Cambridge's Wayne Hatswell

HARRIERS edged through the 2009/09 First Round of the FA Cup thanks to a home win over Cambridge United.

A thumping 5-1 win at King’s Lynn in the Fourth Qualifying Round had taken Mark Yates’ men this far – a meeting with one of their rivals from what was then the Blue Square Premier.

The home side began well and took the lead with what proved to be the only goal of the game; former Harriers man Wayne Hatswell fouling Justin Richards in the area for a penalty that the front-man himself duly dispatched.

Martin Riley and Richards once more went close to doubling a Harriers lead, before tempers flared as Russ Penn found himself substituted – most likely to avoid a potential second yellow card on the day. The midfielder exchanged harsh words with Yates on the touchline with the manager admitting only admiration for the player’s passion when questioned on the incident afterwards.

Felino Jardim and Phil Boland went close for United in the second half, but Harriers held on to secure a place in the next round – where they went on to meet Curzon Ashton at Aggborough.

THIS WEEKEND the Harriers of 2017/18 travel to AFC Fylde in the Emirates FA Cup – view all the details ahead of the game.
