The FA Youth Cup
Kieron Gradwell scores Wycombe's  fourth goal Wanderers' Under 18 side cruised through to the Second Round of the FA Youth Cup with 5-1 victory over Dulwich Hamlet at Adams Park. The scoreline was perhaps a little flattering for Gary Smith's side. Four goals during a 16 minute spell in the first half killed the game off as a contest after the visitors had matched Wanderers during the opening stages.
James Faulkner opened the scoring when he chipped in off the underside of the crossbar in the 22nd minute. Seven minutes later Andy Savage added a second from the penalty spot after Rashid Kamara had been fouled coming in from the right flank. On 32 minutes Faulkner scored his second and Wycombe's third when he fired a low shot past the Dulwich wall and under the 'keeper following a short free-kick from the left. Wanderers goalscoring burst was completed on 38 minutes when Kieron Gradwell forced a header home from close range following a ball in from the right wing.
Wycombe took the foot of the gas during the second period but Ikechi Anya added a fifth with the goal of the game on 66 minutes after he weaved in from the right wing before sending a low shot inside the near post from around 12 yards. Dulwich scored a consolation through Michael Makas on 77 minutes when his shot from inside the penalty area was deflected past Stephen Flower in the Wycombe goal. Dulwich continued to press in the closing stages but Wanderers were never in danger of letting the tie slip.
The reward for the victory is a home tie with Dover Athletic, to be played on Wednesday 24th November at Adams Park.
