flowery doc martens Sub Marshall nets super
Newport IOW 0 Maidstone 4
STEVE MARSHALL came off the bench and scored a hat trick in less than six minutes as Maidstone pulled off an FA Cup shock at Dr Martens League Newport IOW.
The Stones, whose cup run is being followed by national television on Football Focus’ Road To Cardiff feature, had already knocked Dr Martens League neighbours Tonbridge out in the previous round.
And they turned the form book on its head again largely due to Marshall’s second half exploits.
Stones boss Jim Ward said: “The boys were superb. We were playing against a Dr Martens League side again, yet we’ve triumphed.
“Newport is a hard place to play and not many people come here and win.”
Maidstone dominated the first half but had nothing to show for it, and it was not until the 64th minute that they went ahead through a fine solo goal by Adrian Webster.
