A solid performance from the spine of the team, notably from second year prospects Robert Hastings and Sam Doolan saw Wood safely into the next Round, winning 6-0. Goals from Robert Hastings(2), Dion Laughton, Jack Vasey(2), Raheem Stirling(2), Karl Brown, Junior Abass and Kyle Thompson, as well as an own goal have seen Wood net 12 goals in their last two games, and the number of different scorers shows Wood’s Under 18’s have goals from all over the pitch.
Wood now take on yet another Essex side in Thurrock FC who narrowly defeated Potters Bar 2-1 in the previous Round. This will be the second time the teams meet in as many years after Thurrock beat Wood in the First Round Proper last campaign narrowly. Thurrock then went onto the play Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park later in the competition.
