Birmingham Senior Cup 3rd Round – Tuesday, 22nd November 2005

Willenhall Town 3 Halesowen Town 2

Willenhall gained revenge for their FA Trophy defeat by twice coming from behind to progress into the Quarter-Final of the Birmingham Senior Cup.

The evening started promisingly when Nathan Lamey gave the Yeltz a 26th minute lead but Chris Curran equalised three minutes later from a Dominic Reece corner.

Steve Pope headed home from a corner-kick in the 37th minute to restore the advantage and give the visitors the half-time lead.

But on a night when Paul Holleran took the opportunity to give a run out to fringe members of the squad, Willenhall hit two second half goals to upset their higher league neighbours.

Vaughan Thomas levelled the scores in the 68th minute from close range from a corner and John Quilt headed home a 73rd minute header.
