Walsall 1 – 0 Alfreton Town

Alfreton Town have missed out on getting to the third round of the Emirates FA Cup following their match with Walsall last night (Tuesday, December 12).
The two teams had their replay match at Walsall’s Bescot Stadium following last Tuesday’s stalemate match at North Street Stadium in Alfreton.
Walsall – which is 38 league places above Alfreton and plays in League Two – won the match last night by one goal which leaves them to now play Southampton in a FA Cup third-round match at the Hampshire Saint Mary’s Stadium in January.

The Alfreton line up for the match was: Willis, Clackstone, Brisley, Wiley, Newall, Cantrill, Lund, Peritt, Salmon, Taylor, and Thewlis. Susbitutes who came into the match were: Digie, Day and Fewster.
