AFC Hornchurch, Heybridge Swifts, Caney Island, Hampton and Richmond Borough, Chatham Town and Needham Market are the six Ryman League sides definitely through to the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup. Grays Athletic's game with Calor Midland League Daventry Town was scheduled to be playing this afternoon but has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch.
Heybridge Swifts grabbed the headlines by recording a superb and unexpected 1-2 victory at Skrill South Bromley. Up until yesterday Bromley had won all six of their home games (five in the league and one in the cup) so for Swifts to win was an amazing result. Kevin Dobinson and Aaron Greene were the goal-scorers for The Swifts.
They are now just ninety minutes away from the First Round proper where they have reached on three previous occasions in 94/95 (lost to Gillingham 0-2), 97/98 (lost to AFC Bournemouth 0-3) and 02/03 (lost to Bristol City 0-7).
The Cold End sends the best of luck to all of the Ryman teams involved in the draw tomorrow and hopefully at least one team will make it through to the First Round Proper to make a few headlines
for the league.
