Burnham FC maintain their fine form in FA Cup with Northwood victory

Burnham FC maintained their fine form in the FA Cup as they edged into the next round of the competition with a 1-0 win against Northwood on Tuesday night.

Gavin James’ 12th-minute penalty was the difference between the two sides at full time as the Blues picked up their third win of the tournament.

On Twitter, Burnham boss Ashleigh James said: “WE DONE IT. Asked for a reaction and my god we got it. Northwood FC [are] a very good footballing side with lots of talent but tonight was our night, in to the next round.”

It was a perfect response for Burnham who had been knocked out of the FA Vase just three days earlier to Penn and Tylers Green.

In front of a crowd of 150, Dean Allen scored the only goal of the game at French School Meadows on Saturday.

The joint-skipper was able to put the hosts in front with a 67th minute header from Sam Green’s long throw.

Burnham make the short journey to Stag Meadow next to play Windsor in a league fixture on Saturday.
