Huntingdon RGE sprung the surprise of the round in front of a large crowd when they visited Hemingford in this Senior Cup Round One Tie.

Hemingford started the better and only good goalkeeping by Mick Wells kept RGE in the game. He was unable to prevent the hosts grabbing the lead in the 20th minute but this only served to spur RGE on.

The visitors controlled much of the second half but it took until deep into injury time before Dave Gough nicked the equaliser.

Extra-time couldn't separate the teams but RGE progressed to Round Two as hero keeper Wells saved two penalties as the Huntingdon team ran out 4-2 winners
