The Rouslers made a perfect start with Robbie Bunn cutting in from the left after 5 minutes, to see John Pykett convert at the far post. The match being played in atrocious conditions with the rain coming down harder and harder as the match proceeded. Sporting increased their lead five minutes into the second half, when Liam Spink converted a penalty after the impressive Reece Hewitt had been felled in the area. Six minutes from time Sporting made the game safe when Hewitt was again fouled in the box and this time Chris Lloyd stepped up to convert the second penalty of the evening and send the drenched Bromsgrove following home happy. Sporting will now be at home to Coleshill Town on the 19th. August in the Preliminary Round. Attention now turns to the league on Saturday when Bromsgrove travel to Quorn, in their first Midland Football League Premier Division fixture.Back
