Ware 0 Hitchin Town 5

Saturday, September 8 2012

No banana skin this time. After the debacle of Waltham Forest a year ago, Hitchin quickly banished any fears of another FA Cup upset at Ware’s Wodson Park.

John Frendo became the first Hitchin player to score a hat-trick in the competition for 36 years, but Canaries’ fans were talking about the spectacular contribution of new signing Kyle Lincoln, who scored two spectacular goals against the Ryman Division One side.

Lincoln, who is rapidly adjusting to life at a higher level, started the FA Cup campaign off with a superb left foot drive into the top corner of the net after 14 minutes. From thereon, Hitchin were in command.

Ware goalkeeper Rhys Madden prevented Hitchin from extending their lead in the first half, notably when he tipped over Tony Fontenelle’s shot. Frendo and Daniel Dalderfield both had chances blocked as Hitchin tried to assert their authority.

Ware’s Tony Martin should have done better, however, when he shot over the bar following a defensive slip-up.

Hitchin turned the screw in the second period. In the 48th minute, Ross Clemo handled in the area and Frendo scored from the penalty spot. A minute later, Ware were awarded a penalty after Lincoln brought down Amie Blessing. The Ware striker sent his spot-kick wide.

Hitchin fans were cheered by the arrival of Ieuan Lewis as a substitute, his first appearance of the season.

Frendo scored Hitchin’s third goal in the 58th minute, finishing from close range after Fontenelle’s cross.

Ten minutes later, Frendo secured the matchball with a hat-trick against his old club, scoring again from the penalty spot after Madden upended him.

Lewis and Callum Donnelly both went close to scoring before Lincoln grabbed the goal of the game in the 80th minute. Receiving the ball just inside the Hitchin half, he ran the full length of the pitch, gliding past half the Ware team before scoring with his right foot.

There was still drama to come, Ahmadou Seye receiving a red card after a bad tackle on Lewis.

So Ware were disposed of with relative ease. Whitehawk will be a tougher 90 minutes.
