Wroxham’s run in the FA Cup ended at Conference North side Leamington Town with a 4-1 defeat.

A first-half goal by Nathan Stone saw the Yachtsmen go in level at half-time but a change of personnel and formation by Leamington saw them score three second-half goals and end up victors.

The game ebbed and flowed until Leamington’s Stephen Morley unleashed a cracker from 30 yards past a diving Ollie Sutton.

The lead didn’t last long though as on 28 minutes, Wroxham got the equaliser that they deserved. A ball out to Remy Gordon on the left saw the winger beat on-loan Birmingham City U21 player James Fry with ease. His cross to the centre of goal was a peach and Stone met it with a bullet header to bury it past Neil Collett.

A corner after 30 minutes saw a Dan Newton header power off the top of the crossbar with Sutton well-beaten.

Wroxham were finding it difficult with Dodd on the Leamington right getting the better of the previously booked Danny Rust on a number of occasions but the half ended with Wroxham having a chance to go in ahead. A similar move and cross to the goal by Gordon reached Christy Finch in the six yard box but he mis-kicked.

Leamington came out with renewed vigour in the second half and an early shot from distance by Dan Newton was pushed away by Sutton for a corner but the score didn’t stay level for long. A deep cross by Chilton was headed back across Sutton and into the back of the net.

Leamington extended their lead when after another corner, the ball bobbled around the area eventually falling to Jamie Tank who slammed it into the roof of the Wroxham net.

The Yachtsmen then had a major injury scare with Danny Self having to be replaced by Ben Price with the Wroxham stalwart having to be helped from the field by two physios.

The fourth goal for Leamington eventually came thanks to Dan Newton’s smart header past Sutton to complete the win.
