THE Whites are into the next round of the FA Cup, following a 3-2 win over Hampshire side Fareham Town.

Boss Steve Claridge started up front for Salisbury, but failed to score but two first half goals from George Colson and Kane O’Keefe and a second half strike from Danny Young, secured their place in the next round.

The Whites took the lead after just eight minutes, Lewis Benson whipped in a great free-kick from the right which was met by Colson at the far post.

On 15 minutes Whites’ manager Claridge was fouled in the area and the referee awarded a penalty, Tom Whelan stepped up but his spot kicked was saved, to keep the score at 1-0.

O’Keefe doubled the Whites lead on 34 minutes, Claudio Herbert put in a great lofted cross from the left and the captain rose highest to nod home.

The Hampshire side pulled a goal back just before the half, Curt Robbins smashed home from 20 yards out to beat Charlie Searle in the Salisbury goal.

Salisbury started the second half lively and continued to press and were rewarded on 73 minutes, Young smashed a great curling effort into the bottom right corner after cutting in from the left.

With just less than ten minutes remaining Benson went close twice for the Whites, but couldn’t find the back of the net.

Fareham were awarded a lifeline on 84 minutes, Jake Wannell gave away a penalty, which Simon Woods converted to make the score 3-2 to Salisbury.

Mark Francis could have put the game to bed in extra time, but his shot was saved.
