OUR run towards the first round proper of the FA Youth Cup ground to a halt on Wednesday night when the Under-18s were beaten 7-1 by Buckingham Athletic in the final qualifying round.
We were 4-0 down by half-time and, despite a reply from Dylan Randall straight after the interval, we were undone by three further goals.
Buckingham looked an exceptional side, though that will be of little consolation to manager Steve Bates after our victories over Chertsey Town, Walton and Hersham and Codicote in the three previous rounds.
The Under-18s, who play in the Isthmian Youth League, still have the chance of success this season in the county cup and league cup.
