Curtis Pond made it a day to remember for Tower Hamlets as they booked a place in the preliminary round of the FA Cup last night.

Substitue Pond struck the only goal at Mile End Stadium to lead his side to a 1-0 victory and bag them £1,500 in prize money and book a home tie with Takeley FC on August 19.

Tower Hamlets picked up their first victory of the season, after failing to win their first two matches of the season, as well as being forced into a replay against FC Broxbourne Borough, after they drew 1-1 away to the Spartan South Midlands League Division One outfit on Saturday afternoon.

They will now host fellow Essex Senior League outfit Takeley later this month in a bid to continue their FA Cup run.

Tower Hamlets: McNight, Neeman, Ozie, Jerome, Watson, Wilson, Akinola, Ali, Antony, Wale, Antonio.

Subs: Best, Pond and Hasan.
