Sholing lined up with only four starters from their FA Vase victory at Wembley notable absentee was goal hero Marvin McLean who was getting a run out with the reserves. Lewis Fennemore was given a new role at right back with Kevin Brewster slotting into midfield.
Shortwood started lively and gained the first free kick. On 6 mins Sholing had their first clear chance when Jack Smith’s throw in from the left found Barry Mason with his back to goal swivelled and his shot deflected off the defender for a corner. Kevin Brewster corner was easily collect by goalkeeper King. 4 minutes later Barry Mason was fouled on the edge of the 18 yd box, Kevin Brewster chipped the free kick just over the bar. Shortwood full back Matt Bennett was getting the better of Lewis Fennemore early on resulting in Shortwood getting two quick corners. Again a deep cross on 18 minutes was headed goalwards but cleared by TJ Cuthbertson. Matt Bennett once again got forward and his low shot was safely gathered by Matt Brown.
