Eight clubs from the Pitching In Southern League Division One Central and South made progress in Saturday’s Isuzu FA Trophy Second Qualifying Round, with FC Romania playing on Sunday.

Winning internal battles from Division One South were AFC Totton, 2-1 at the Snows Stadium against Division One Central side Berkhamsted, Tavistock AFC, who beat Berko’s league rivals Didcot Town 1-0, Evesham United, 2-1 at home to Lymington Town, while both Bristol Manor Farm and Melksham Town went through on penalties – Farm 5-4 after a 2-2 draw with Bideford AFC at The Creek – and Melksham 5-3 after a similar result at Bashley.

Cirencester Town, switched to Division One Central, edged out former Division One South rivals Paulton Rovers by the odd goal in five at the Corinium Stadium.

Beating outside opposition were Division One Central sides AFC Dunstable and Harlow Town.

The OD’s won 3-0 at Waterside Park against Isthmian South Central side Thatcham Town with John Shamalo bagging a brace.

The Hawks, despite having Alex Luque sent-off after half-an-hour, beat Thatcham’s league rivals Ashford Town (Middx) 4-1 at home, thanks to Syrus Gordon, Samson Maagbe, a Jared Small penalty and Terrell Egbri – the Ash Trees also finishing with ten-men with Dale Burnham’s 62nd minute dismissal.

Losing to outside opponents, however, were Division One Central outfits Hertford Town, Ware and Thame United.

Hertford lost 5-3 on penalties at Isthmian South East side Sevenoaks Town after a 2-2 draw, while a last-gasp Adam Vyse goal – his second – saw Ishmian North Witham Town beat Ware 2-1.

Thame lost by the same scoreline at the ASM Stadium to Isthmian South Central side Binfield, despite Jack Gardner’s 18th-minute opener.
