FA Cup Round Two Draw: Portsmouth to Host Kings Lynn Town

Marine Draw Fellow Non-League Side

Marine, who currently play in the Northern Premier League Division One North West, overcame their League Two opponents on penalties on Saturday.

The eighth-tier side took the lead against Colchester in the 22nd minute, before the hosts equalised midway through the second half. After remaining level through extra-time, the non-league side eventually triumphed on penalties.

Havant & Waterlooville, meanwhile, beat Cray Valley Paper Mills 1-0 in Hampshire. The National League South side scored in the 18th minute, and it remained that way until full-time.

Kings Lynn Town to Face Portsmouth at Fratton Park

After beating Port Vale in Round One, National League side Kings Lynn Town have been rewarded with a trip to Fratton Park to face Portsmouth.

Kenny Jackett’s side made it through to round two of the FA Cup after defeating fellow League One Ipswich Town. Goals from Ronan Curtis and Tom Naylor gave Pompey the lead, before the Tractor Boys registered two to make it all-square in the second. With the game midway through the first half of extra-time, Sean Raggett then sent Portsmouth through to round two.

It is the first time that Kings Lynn have made it through to this stage. They will be hoping that they can go one step further, as they can have the chance to face a Premier League side.
