Eversley & California 2-0 Staines Lammas: Boars progress in Southern Combination Cup

Southern Combination Cup: Eversley & California 2-0 Staines Lammas

Binfield v Lymington

Goals from Ross Mckernan and Jamie Griggs ensured that the Boars booked their place in the next round of the Southern Combination Cup.

Eversley looked to have taken the lead with just 15 minutes on the clock as George Marsh met Harry Stephenson’s delivery from a corner, but the referee disallowed the goal for handball to keep the sides deadlocked. 

But the Boars ensured that they would enter the half-time break with the ascendancy in the match as Mckernan struck from outside the box in the 41st minute to open the scoring. 

A half-time substitution saw Adam Ntiti replace Cameron Blackie who picked up a first-half caution. Eversley manager Matty Angell then used his two remaining subs just after the hour mark, with Kai Francis replacing Conor Harlowe and Charlie Scope taking the place of Harrison Shade.

Goalkeeper Liam Vaughan made a vital stop at his near post to maintain the Boars clean sheet, before Griggs got on the end of Stepehnson’s free kick to head Eversley into a 2-0 advantage. 

Having secured their place in the next round of the competition, Eversley prepare to face Godalming Town FC on Saturday.

Eversley & California: Vaughan, Stephenson, D Francis, J Francis, Marsh, Griggs, Mckernan, Blackie, Harlowe, Scope, Dickie.
