[BIRMINGHAM SENIOR CUP]

Atherstone saw progress in the Birmingham Senior Cup whipped from their grasp as the home side’s late surge gave them victory.

Ron Bradbury’s men took the lead in first half stoppage time when Paul White, who had gone close early on, weaved his way into the area before managing to slip the ball to Danny Martin who shot in low.

Adders could have tied the game up just seconds after the interval when Craig Dean let fly with a 22-yard pile driver which hit the post.

But it was not all one sided and at the other end Atherstone were also saved by the woodwork when a shot from Mick McGrath also struck a post.

Adders were still looking set to go through when Paget pulled level with 15 minutes left – Wayne Crook heading in past Dale Belford.

Then, just over a minute later, substitute Steve Walker converted a cross from former Adders man Shaun Marchant. The home side had a man sent off for two bookings, but it came too late to give Adders a real chance of a comeback.
