Stamford’s Lee Beeson helped his club to an historical FA Cup First Round Proper tie against Hartlepool United by scoring two penalties, one in the original tie at Stamford and then again in the replay at Wrexham.
His first spot kick earned his side a well-deserved 1-1 draw against National League side Wrexham, who are three tiers above them at non-league level.
His second put Stamford one goal up in a monumental tie at the Racecourse Ground. Stamford would go on to be 2-0 up only for the Welsh side to peg them back to 2-2 in the closing minutes. In extra time, Jake Duffy’s free kick put Stamford through, making history for the club. They face Hartlepool in what will be their first appearance in the First Round Proper in the club’s 120-year history.
I thought I’d post both his penalties on here for Stamford fans to savour.
