BOTTLE OF HASTINGS; Battle of the Minnows Ends All Square in Scrap for Big-Money Tie Fa Cup Second Round Fame Is the Spur for United Skipper Carey as He Dreams of Scalping His Hero Sandro


Byline: Richard Gibson

Harrogate 1 HASTINGS 1 by Richard Gibson LEE CAREY is dreaming of making Samba star Sandro the biggest scalp of his career after HASTINGS United survived to fight on for the chance of FA Cup glory.

Carey, captain of the Ryman League Premier outfit, hopes to be paired with his beloved Tottenham when the third round is drawn this afternoon, which would set him up for a midfield clash with the often bizarrely barneted Brazil international.

Both Harrogate Town and HASTINGS - the lowest-ranked club remaining in the competition - will go into the third -round hat after this thud-and-blunder lunchtime tie at Wetherby Road.

Full-back Dave Merris's corner was helped back across the area by Town captain Alan White and Platt nodded down and in. Forward Chib Chilaka, the man whose goal knocked out Torquay in round Lincoln 3 Mansfield 3 Burton 1 two, ensured there were no doubts the ball had crossed the line.

Harrogate's rutted surface, which has been problematic since being relaid in the summer, was not conducive to intricate passing, which only added to the up-and-at-'em atmosphere as the North Yorkshire spa town hosted its biggest event since the Eurovision Song Contest 30 years ago.

Town striker Paul Beesley did have the ball in the net as early as the 11th minute but referee Mark Brown had already penalised midfielder Luke Dean for a sliding challenge on visiting goalkeeper Matt Armstrong-Ford. …
