Bingham Cox Trophy First Round

Potters Bar Crusaders 1

St Albans Wanderers 0

WHEN the Crusaders went ahead through a looping header from Mark Mills after just one minute, the omens were not good.

However, the away defence battened down the hatches for the remainder of the game and any breaches were dealt with by Man of the Match 'keeper, Carl Fadhel.

Crusaders repeatedly looked to play though balls to their goalscorer, Mills, but Fadhel saved shot after shot.

Unfortunately, at the other end, there was no-one to convert Richard Francis' knock ons into an equaliser.

On Saturday, the Wanderers return to league action with a visit to Toulmin Drive, to play local rivals, Global.
