Parson Drove 3 - 4 City

Cambridge City progressed in the Cambridgeshire Invitational cup thanks to a last gasp winner from Attacking Midfielder Tom Waumsley.

Manager Robbie Nightingale made wholesale changes from the team than narrowly missed out on a point away to Halesowen Town FC at the weekend.

Ben Bradley and Ally Conway were back in the starting line up to get some valuable game time as well as City youngsters Caleb Chandler in goal, Ed Tassell in Defence and Alfie Lee who joined the action just after the break replacing Nathan Olukanmi on 54 mins.

In front of a good crowd of 100 hardy supporters, City started brightly with a headed goal from Jarid Robson from a Bradley Gothard cross on 9 mins. Daniel Cotton stepped up to make it 0-2 from the spot after Ryan Ingrey had been fouled in the box and then Robson got his 2nd with a smart turn and shot just a minute later to give City a 0-3 lead at half-time.

The tables turned after the break when Josh Hales & Scott Waumsley got the home side back in the game with two stunning strikes, the 2nd of which was the pick of tonight’s goals. Conor Pilbeam struck the equaliser on 85 mins and the game looked to be going to penalties.

However, In the dying seconds a sliced clearance sent the ball over the home keeper and Tom Waumsley was on hand to smash in the winner for City.

Thanks to Parson Drove for the warm welcome and a special mention to the Cambs FA officials who were fantastic, especially the lino nursing a cold all game.
