Tring Athletic 3 SWR Doors 1

TRING Athletic’s quality eventually shone through as they saw off SWR Garage doors to progress to the next round of the St Marys Cup.

West Herts League outfit Doors put up a spirited fight, but Tring were good value for the win.

Athletic went in at half-time with a slender 1-0 advantage courtesy of Stewart King’s strike, and Julian Robinson’s men wrapped up the victory after the interval.

Two goals within the space of a minute effectively ended the game as a contest as Andy Humphreys and Sam Mitchell pounced to give Tring a 3-0 lead.

To their credit, Doors battled to the end, and bagged a well-deserved consolation goal through Joe Copson’s penalty.

Next up for Tring is a local derby with fierce rivals Leverstock Green on Saturday.
