Well done lads. On to Friday.....

The Wells bowed of this years FA Cup at the first hurdle going down 2-1 away to Eastbourne Utd.
With two contrasting styles of play on show the Wells were undone by United's long ball game.
The hosts took the lead on 33mins when a long ball over the top caught out the wells defence.
They doubled their lead 12mins into the second half when a Wells free kick on the edge of Eastbourne's area was blocked and they were allowed to break quickly.

A Red hot Saturday afternoon saw sublime first half finish from Perry Spackman cancelled out by a Kieron Tarbie own goal on the stroke of half time.
The Wells will therefore travel to the coast on Tuesday evening for the replay.
