FA CUP: IT was three-and-easy for Fleet as they breezed to a 3-0 win in the FA Cup Preliminary round, writes Luke Lambert.
Goals from Joel Nouble, Charlie Stimson and Callum Ibe put the tie beyond the away side. Fleet didn’t have to wait long for the opening goal.
Charlie Stimson burst forward after 17 minutes before squaring to Nouble to give the home side the lead.
The striker almost doubled his tally after 30 minues but was denied by an excellent low save.
It didn’t take long for Thurrock to extend their lead as Ben Smith played in Stimson in the 52nd minute and he netted from 15 yards out to make it 2-0 to the Ryman North side.
The third goal came in the 70th minute when a mix up between right back Deller and goalkeeper Crump allowed the lively Callum Ibe to run through and home.
