SLCC 1R; Banbury United Leigh-ve it late to progress in cup

Banbury United left it late to squeeze past North Leigh on Tuesday night, scoring a late winner in added time of this Southern League Challenge Cup 1st round fixture.

Giorgio Rasulo scored 93rd minute winner

Banbury went two up inside twenty-four first half minutes through John Mills & Mohammed Ahmed but on the stroke of half-time North Leigh grabbed a glimmer of hope through George Seacole. The goal just before the interval kicked the home side into life, equalising through Ross Edwards before Tyriq Hunte put them ahead for the first time in the game with twenty-five to play.

John Mills levelled the tie once more ten minutes from time before the home side went down to ten men through injury, a last gasp Giorgio Rasulo strike three minutes into added on time then broke the home sides resistance to see the Puritans progress.
