Tonight the young Rams faced a strong Hollands & Blair outfit, who with early pressure and the wind behind them managed to pull out a 2 goal lead in the first half hour, but a well-taken shot by Bradley Torrance pulled one back 10 minutes before the interval.
The 2nd half saw the Rams equalise through Sam Bradley to take the game to extra-time, and without further goals it went to the dreaded shoot-out. Unfortunately, this is where the Blair booked their passage into the next round of the cup, coming out on the right side of the penalties by 4-2.
Ramsgate: James King, Jacob Mensah, Llewan Campbell, Charlie Cook, Alfy Warren, Nial Marney, Kieron Beresford, Reece Greig, Connor Wardle, Sam Bradley, Bad Torrance. Subs: Louis Shephard, Rob Welhard, Gabriel Harrison, Jay Sutton, Tom Handley.
On Sunday the U18s are back in League action, when they welcome Herne Bay to Southwood for an 11am kickoff.
