Millers bow out after emphatic defeat

Aveley bowed out at the Kings Marsh Stadium.

AFC Sudbury 4, Aveley 0
THE FA Cup trail ended at the first time of asking for Aveley who were well beaten in Suffolk.
The four goal margin was no fluke as AFC saw the majority of the ball throughout the tie and the only time the visitors looked dangerous was just after the interval.
AFC took the lead in the 27th minute when Julian Smith scored his first goal for the club with a header from a scorer. Adam Mills added the second three minutes before the interval with a dipping shot that took a deflection.
Two minutes into the half Jordan Watson, one of two Aveley half-time substitutes, broke free in the home penalty box, but his shot cannoned off the crossbar and was shepherded behind for a goal-kick.
This could have revitalised the Aveley effort and been a turning point, but the ball was cleared away and Sudbury could build once more. Joe Claridge sent another fine ball into Adam Mills who slid the ball home, but he was flagged for offside.
The game was effectively sealed on the hour when Dave Cowley’s sublime free kick was curled over the wall to ripple in the back of the net with Aveley ‘keeper Rhys Madden able only to admire its impressive trajectory.
Two second half goals, the first from a Dave Cowley free kick and the other from a blistering shot from the edge of the penalty area from Alfie Carroll saw AFC home.
