Chasetown Town 5 - 2 Hinckley AFC
Atletico were unable to pull out another giant killing and finally bowed out of the FA Cup in the 2nd qualifying round, losing to Chasetown at the Scholars ground.

Chasetown being 2 levels higher than AFC showed the difference in leagues and on the day were better than Hinckley. They were ahead as early as the 11th minute when Paul Sullivan saw his shot deflected past Sam Arnold. Luke Richards had a great chance to equalise on the half hour when played in by Jean Kalenda, but John Bateman made the save in the Chasetown goal.

The second half was more end to end, and AFC had levelled within minutes of the restart when Richards corner was blasted into the net on the half volley by Kristian Ramsey-Dickson. However, Chasetown hit Hinckley with a 15 minute spell of dominance scoring 3 goals and putting the tie beyond AFC. Town re-took the lead when Michael Williams ran down the right and crossed central for Stan Mugisha to score from close in. This was quickly followed by James Dance converting a penalty when he was judged to have been pushed in the area. Then Ryan Wynter added Chasetown's fourth heading home a Dance cross. There was a small sliver of hope for Atletico when Richards converted Marco Addagio's neat through ball, but that was snuffed out late on when Danny Edwards headed in Chasetown's fifth goal 6 minutes from time.

Hinckley go out of the FA Cup having reached the 2nd qualifying in our debut season in the competition, leaving some great memories of games along the way.
