Hampstead's cup challenge
Tuesday 12 November 1996
Hampstead and Westminster, and Ipswich, who had impressive League and Cup wins at the weekend, meet in the fourth round of the HA Cup following yesterday's draw. On Saturday, Hampstead maintained pole position in the Nastro Azzurro South Premier with a 4-0 win at Bournemouth, thanks to a couple of goals from Mark Crowley, and then knocked Jersey out of the Cup with a convincing 5-1 win - Crowley again scoring twice.
Ipswich, from the Adnams East Premier, beat Cambridge University 3-1 in the league, Andy Cook collecting the goals, and then, in the Cup, defeated National League side Bromley 5-0 with Cook and Andy Berresford each scoring twice. In the only other fixture between non-National League sides Chelmsford visit Weston-super-Mare.
Non-league giantkillers Cambridge City and Anchorians face difficult ties. Cambridge travel to Premier Guildford, Anchorians entertain current First Division leaders, Beeston. The Cup holders, Reading, have a home draw against Firebrands where their goalkeeper Simon Mason and leading striker Mark Pearn will be facing their old club. In the only Premier League meeting, past Cup winners Southgate and East Grinstead meet in north London.
