LYE Town have booked a trip to Cambridgeshire side Histon in the last 32 of this season's FA Vase this week after lashing Leighton Town 4-0 following an extra-time frenzy.

Both sides had failed to produce a goal inside 90 minutes - but once extra-time arrived, it was a different story.

Leighton lost their composure after having one of their central defenders sent off in the 88th minute.

Lye boss Andy Wyton said: "That was turning point. They hadn't caused us any problems throughout the game but the problem was we just couldn't score.

"Saying that, Leighton defended really well. But we always thought that if one goal went in, they would go and that proved the case.

"The sending off was created by two yellow cards. The player had already picked up one for clattering Jack Till. He then took a swipe at Lewis Worsey after he'd slipped past him and had to go.

"With his departure, Leighton's resistance had gone."

Extra-time goals from Josh McKenzie, Adam Meacham, Ben Billingham and substitute Luke Carter did the trick.

Wyton brought in goalkeeper Ben Newey from National League North side Leamington after playing them last week in the Birmingham Senior Cup.

Solihull-based Newey replaces Matt Sargeant who has been recalled back to Alvechurch after fellow goalkeeper Charlie Price picked up a suspension.

Wyton added: "Leamington boss Paul Holleran did me a favour. We needed a goalkeeper and I couldn't sign anyone on loan - that's what did for our original FA Vase opponents Cogenhoe United, who were consequently thrown out of the competition.

"Ben will fight with Tom Turner for the first team slot when Tom returns to action on December 22 after work commitments."

Wyton has also stuck to his guns by bringing in new faces this week.

He has signed prolific West Midlands League marksman Liam Hughes from Black Country Rangers.

Wyton has also snapped up Wolverhampton Sporting Community and Smethwick Rangers striker Colin Smith.

Busy Wyton has also promised further signings and confirmed: "As new players come in, there will be players going out."

Lye Town return to Midland League Premier Division action this Saturday when they entertain Coventry Sphinx before travelling to Coventry United next Tuesday.
