Sevenoaks to call the shots

SEVENOAKS TOWN are expecting a big crowd for their first ever FA Youth Cup tie on Tuesday evening when Nationwide Conference outfit Aldershot Town are the visitors to Greatness Park, writes Stephen McCartney.

In another first on Saturday, Andy Constable created history when he became the first Sevenoaks Town player to score in the FA Vase, cancelling out Andy Ward's strike for Deal.

However, the 2000 winners clinched a place into the first round when Nathan Mitford headed home the winning goal only two minutes from time, breaking Sevenoaks' hearts.

Looking ahead to the game against the Shots, Sevenoaks' club manager Graham Logsdon admitted: "It's another first step really.

"We had the FA Vase on Saturday, which was another first for the club and this is followed by another first, in the FA Youth Cup, against Aldershot Town on Tuesday, against what's obviously going to be strong opposition.

"Realistically we are not going to go that far in it but it's a toe in the water, a good experience for what I consider to be a good quality under eighteen youth side we've got this year.

"We've got some good lads come on board - showing quite well, so it will be a good test for them."
