Swindon Supermarine boss Dave Webb was happy to “get the job done” against Odd Down and progress to the next round of the FA Cup

After making a superb start to the match by going two goals up in the first 12 minutes, Webb was disappointed that his side allowed the visitors back into the match.

Webb conceded his side could consider themselves lucky to go into the break 2-1 ahead but the second-half was a different story as Marine as they scored three more goals without response.

Ultimately though Webb was delighted to progress to the next round of the FA Cup and extend their unbeaten run to five matches.

Swindon Supermarine cruised into the FA Cup first qualifying round after beating Odd Down 5-1 at the Webbswood Stadium

In-form striker Connor Waldon got Marine off to a superb start, firing home on three minutes.

Brad Hooper then scored from the spot on 12 minutes after Callum Parsons was brought down by the goalkeeper for a stonewall penalty.

Odd Down hit back on the half-hour mark, taking advantage of some sloppy Supermarine defending to make it 2-1 at the break.

Richard Dawley then diverted Waldon’s cross into his own net on 54 minutes before the Marine striker was inches away from scoring a delightful chip shot.

Callum Parsons then made it 4-1 on 70 minutes before Odd Down scored their second own goal of the game on 85 minutes, the ball deflecting off a defender’s thigh and into the net.

Supermarine now face Portishead away on Saturday, September 3rd.
