1st Round

Alfreton Town 1-1 Newport County – FA Cup 1st Round


Alfreton Town came from behind to earn a replay with League 2 side Newport County in the FA Cup 1st Round.

The non-league club, appearing in the first round proper for only the eighth time in their history, had the better of the first period but fell behind to a 65th-minute Josh Sheehan strike.

However, the Reds levelled nine minutes later courtesy of Terry Kennedy’s first goal for the club, which ultimately proved enough to deservedly force a replay.
