Tydd St Mary’s ninth successive win took them into the last 16 of the Lincolnshire FA Junior Cup when they breezed past Mablethorpe Athletic.

The Saints quickly took hold of the fixture and went ahead on 10 minutes from a counter-attack.

Keeper David Cooper cleared his lines from an Athletic corner, Tim Lowe surged down the left wing and floated a trademark pinpoint cross for Scott Pemberton to send a bullet header into the net.

Mablethorpe had first-half chances but the back four of Dan Piccaver, Luke Tordoff, Ian Thrower and Josh Slator restricted those attempts.

The Saints continued to press and have chances with wingers Stu Easey and Jason Powley being particularly productive.

They got back into their rhythm in the second half with Matty Clayden and Nick Reims pulling the strings in the middle of the boggy pitch.

Every player to a man performed at their best against a very good side and in difficult conditions.

Tydd had to wait until the 70th minute to get their second goal, again on the counter as full-back Slator put Lowe through onto goal and he duly despatched a fierce low shot into the left-hand corner of the net to give the Mablethorpe keeper no chance.

Things got even better for Tydd three minutes later when Paul Clarke found 
himself in space around 30 yards out and smashed a thunderbolt of a shot into the roof of the net.

Manager Carl Wilson said: “Every player to a man performed at their best against a very good side and in difficult conditions.

“They worked hard for each other with high intensity and they kept asking themselves questions. I am proud of them all.”

Tydd have been drawn at home to College Wanderers in the fourth round to be played on December 12 while Sutton Bridge United face Baston.

Five first-half goals set up Sutton Bridge’s 6-1 victory at Chapel Swifts. On target were Ben Partridge (2), Matt Eaton, Sam Lilley, Kurt Scott and Joe Sutton.

Baston edged out Kirton Town 2-1 after extra-time thanks to Dan Flood and Troy Waters.

Pinchbeck United lost 3-2 at Railway Athletic with replies from Liam Ogden and Dan Woods.
