Soham Town Rangers boss Erkan Okay says the lesson to learn from their FA Cup defeat to Hashtag United is to see the game out better.
Ely City crashed out of the FA Vase after they were made to pay for a lacklustre second-half at their lower league opponents on Saturday.
For one Ely footballer, he perhaps could not have felt a better experience than making his professional debut for his boyhood club.
Ely City’s reward for reaching the first qualifying round of the FA Cup for the first time since 2011 will be another game at home but for Soham Town Rangers the campaign will continue on the road.
Ely City will be feeling buoyant after they made an impressive start to the 2020-21 season in both league and cup.
