Nomads move comfortably through to the next stage of the FA vase with a 4-0 victory at St Helens Town. Kyle Foley (2), Dan McLaughlin and Keiran Alley with the goals
Nomads started the game brightly and went ahead in 2 mins when Kyle Foley latched on to a through ball and comfortably slotted past the keeper. There were chances to extend the lead straight after but it could just as easily have been the home team that equalised as Nomads seemed to switch off defensively and St. Helens began to get into the game
It was to be Nomads that doubled their advantage but not before Alex Fowell made a great save from the penalty spot to keep the Nomads advantage following a handball in the box.
Minutes after the penalty save it was that man Foley again that doubled the Nomads advantage. This time a cross from the right found Foley in between the centre half to head home his second of the day.
Nomads added a third before half time when Danny Mclaughlin kept up his current scoring run netting at the second attempt from close range
The second half started with St Helens on the front foot and doing their best to try and get back in the game. They had their chances to get something out of the early exchanges but thanks to good goalkeeping, stout defending and poor finishing, they were unable to make it count.
Nomads then extended their advantage with a first goal in Nomads colours for Keiran Alley who took a long cross field pass in his stride, raced through on goal and finished past the keeper and off the post
Both clubs had opportunities to score in the last moments of the game but were unable to do so and Nomads progress to the next round where we will travel to Grimsby to meet NCEL premier divison leaders Grimsby Borough
Recent signing from Sandbach United, Callum Evans made his Nomads debut in the second half and we look forward to seeing more of him in the weeks and months to come
