Morpeth’s FA Cup dream ended as brave Town exit at Altrincham
0 Have your say Altrincham 3-0 Morpeth Town
Morpeth Town exited the FA Cup valiantly after a 3-0 defeat to National League North side Altrincham at the J Davidson Stadium.
Damian Reeves headed the hosts ahead four minutes before half-time, and after the break Sean Taylor was denied superbly by Andrew Dawber.
Sean Miller doubled the advantage on 76 minutes, but Morpeth should have had a penalty when Michael Chilton was heavily brought down in the area.
The Robins took full advantage of having an extra man and Simon Richman added a third for the hosts deep into injury time.
