The Report
This years FA Cup campaign started with a shortish trip to Cobham, who play in the Combined Counties League. There was a friendly welcome, a pleasant ground which they seem to be developing and loads of parking space. Slough were without McCleary and Woodruffe, (injured), and Glynn (left for Oxford City?).

Slough were straight out of the traps, and within the first couple of minutes caused a goalmouth scramble from which a goal could easily have resulted. Cobham soon settled down, and during the next 20 minutes a pattern emerged—Slough had the skill, but Cobham chased and harried everything in true FA cup underdog style. It nearly paid dividends too when after about 20 minutes their No.7, who had an impressive game, broke clear on their right, but blazed wide.

The game was hard fought, but somewhat lacking in incident until the 25th minute which saw the start of an action packed quarter of an hour. Cobham started the action when another break on the right saw a long cross only partially palmed away by Drake, allowing Mesher to slot home. This seemed to spur Slough into action as within a couple of minutes Slough seemed to have equalized through Wallace (?) in a goalmouth melee, but the ref disallowed for a handball.

Slough were not to be denied though as Alexis picked up a loose ball from a saved shot resulting from a corner, 1-1. Slough kept up the pace with Jarvis nearly scoring from an overhead kick, then deservedly took the lead in the 40th minute when Jarvis drilled a low one home from the edge of the box. Dell was substituted just before half time with a knee injury.

The second half was more even, Slough protecting their lead, and frustrating Cobham. Mark Bartley showed some promising touches on the right, and seems much improved since his last spell with us. Odhiambo hit the post from one of Bartley’s crosses, Cobham chased the game, missed a couple of half chances, and got more frustrated as the game came to a close. Slough shut the game down, surviving a few scares in the process. Not pretty at the end, but effective. Home to Maidenhead in the second round please (if they win their replay away at Caterton).
