FA CUP: Hamworthy United 3 Melksham Town 1 AET
8:06am Thursday 22nd August 2013 in Football
MELKSHAM Town suffered FA Cup heartbreak last night as they were knocked out of the competition after taking their Extra Preliminary Round tie at Hamworthy United to extra time.
The clash was goalless after 90 minutes but Melksham had been reduced to ten men and Dave Clayton's side suffered a blow when the Hampshire hosts took the lead early in the first added period.
Sayeed Ibrahim equalised but the hosts scored twice late on to book their place in the next round, with Melksham ending the evening with nine men.
Clayton's men face a Bank Holiday double-header in the Toolstation League Premier Division this weekend, with Gillingham Town and Brislington visiting the Conigre on Saturday and Monday respectively.
