ADAMS DELIGHTED TO GET INTO HAT FOR SECOND ROUND

9 November 2020

Shrimps boss Derek Adams says he and his side are delighted to be in the hat for the second round of this season's Emirates FA Cup.

The Shrimps beat Maldon and Tiptree live on the BBC and BT Sport to secure their place in the second round.
 
"In the first half, we had five or six excellent opportunities before Adam Phillips scored from the penalty spot," said Adams.
 
"For the penalty, Aaron Wildig played a great reversed ball in behind Maldon's centre-backs for Carlos Mendes Gomes to run on to but as he was going around the goalkeeper, he was brought down. 
 
"In the second half we continued to dominate the game and created many more openings. Carlos had a goal disallowed for offside but it can be seen on the video footage that he was onside. 
 
"We're delighted to now be into the draw for the second round of the FA Cup tomorrow night for the first time in many years."
