AFC Croydon Athletic took another step towards making their inaugural season a memorable one beating Eversley & California in an entertaining cup semi-final last Saturday.
The game started with the hosts having the majority of the possession without troubling Dean Rose.
Slowly the Rams came more into game and full-back David Baker made a great run but fired his shot just wide.
On 24 minutes, the Rams defence was caught out when Brad Cann got through, drew Rose before slipping the ball to Chris Fox who had the easy task of scoring into an open goal.
Alan Bidi-Lacadoug twice went close to equalising, while Colin Harvey saw a header saved as the Rams looked to reply.
But an equaliser finally came when Danny Penfold released Danny Cumber down the right and his cross took a slight deflection and looped into the far corner to make it 1-1.
Within a minute the Rams had taken the lead. Penfold and Cumber exchanged passes and found Lee Jansen, who laid the ball off for Bidi-Lacadoug to fire it into the bottom corner from 18-yards out.
The second half began with the home side on the front foot and Neil Williams hit the post. This was the closest they came to an equaliser as the game became end-to-end, but the Rams defence stood firm.
