MAIDENHEAD United have progressed into the FA Trophy second round proper this season after a 2-0 win away at Woking on Saturday.

United travelled to Woking without a win in eight matches but swept aside their National League rivals at the Kingfield Stadium.

Woking are three-time winners of the FA Trophy but Maidenhead dominated the first round tie from start to finish.

Moses Emmanuel is an ex-Cardinal and recently extended his loan from Sutton United to Maidenhead, and he opened the scoring five minutes into the second half.

Racing onto a slide-rule pass from the energetic Harold Odametey, the striker coolly slotted past the advancing Jojo Woollacott - on loan from Bristol City.

The strike was a richly deserved reward for a committed performance by Emmanuel and his teammates enjoyed celebrating a first United goal with him.

Woking were unfortunate not to level the scores when Maidenhead captain Alan Massey was forced to clear from his own goal line at a corner.

United finally sewed the tie up at the matched ticked into injury time. Substitute Jake Hyde twisted and turned into the box to fire emphatically inside the near post.

Harry Pritchard, who has passed fit shortly before kick-off, had a chance to really stamp the visitors’ authority on the tie in time added on but was denied by the near post.

The reward for United is a second round tie away at either FC Halifax Town or Macclesfield Town on Saturday, January 13 (3pm).

Maidenhead return to action in the National League with a trip to Hartlepool United this Saturday (3pm) before returning to York Road for the visit of Solihull Motors on Boxing Day (3pm).

Windsor held Wantage Town to a 0-0 draw in a Hellenic Premier Division match of few chances at Alfredian Park. Neither side could find the crucial touch in front of goal and have to settle for a point.

Windsor are now in 11th position in the league table but can leapfrog Brackley Town Saints with a win at Stag Meadow this Saturday (3pm).

Fifth from bottom Ascot United host Windsor on Boxing Day (3pm).

Virginia Water made it six wins on the bounce in Hellenic Division One East with a 2-0 victory away at Chinnor on Saturday.

The goals came from Adam McNamara and Joe McBride after the half-time interval at the Chinnor Community Pavilion.

Second in the table Waters turn their attention to the Challenge Cup and a tie away at Bishops Cleeve Development on Saturday, January 6 (3pm).
