Imps To Meet Colwyn Bay
The Imps will travel to Colwyn Bay in the First Round Proper of the FA Trophy on 10th December after they beat FC Halifax 2-1 at the Shay. In true cup fashion the fates conspired with a story of two penalties, followed by a bizarre own goal.
Halifax missed one when Walshaw ‘wellied’ over the bar. Halifax threw the kitchen sink at the visitors second half and equalised on 62 minutes with a 25-yard screamer from skipper Tom Baker before Colwyn Bay netted theirs when McLaughlin coolly converted.
Shock, gasp, horror, as within a minute hapless home defender Greg Anderson put a back pass past his keeper to gift the visitors the tie. Although Bay were reduced to 10-men after the sending off of Danny Lloyd, the Welshman held on for a deserved Christmas glamour tie against the Imps.
