Battling seventh-tier Bracknell suffered a 3-0 FA Cup first-round defeat to League One outfit Ipswich.

The visitors’ class eventually told as a second-half spree killed off the Southern League Premier Division South side’s fairy tale run, their first appearance in the first round since 2000.

Captain Dan Bayliss’ own goal broke the resistance before Freddie Ladapo and Panutche Camara set up a clash with another non-league side, Buxton, in the second round.

Bracknell stopper Michael Eacott twice produced good saves to keep out Ladapo, either side of his glaring first-half miss.

But winger Kane Vincent-Young turned the game on its head within seven second-half minutes.

First it was heartbreak for Bayliss as he turned Vincent-Young’s drilled cross into his own net in the 66th minute.

And then he provided a fine ball for Ladapo to finally find the back of the net.

The 26-year-old Vincent-Young was denied a goal of his own by the offside flag.

Summer signing Camara added the finishing touch with his first goal for the club nine minutes from time after a deadly counter attack.

Ipswich will face another non-league side in the second round when they host Buxton.

Speaking on the game, Tractor Boys boss Kieran McKenna was full of praise for the Robins.

McKenna said: “It was a tough game, it took us 20 minutes or so to adjust to the conditions and get a rhythm.

“Full credit to Bracknell. It’s their big day and their big night.

“I thought they should be proud of their efforts, they made it difficult for us. They tried to be aggressive.

“I’m just thankful in the end that we managed to control the game and get the goals, but again it’s Bracknell’s night and they should be proud of themselves.

“I wasn’t surprised it took that long for the goals to come. It can happen, their players were working ever so hard.

“Their organisation was good and we missed some chances towards the end of the first half.

“We knew we had to be patient and we knew when we got the first goal that we’d be okay. But credit to Bracknell for their organisation and their efforts.

“We have a lot of the ball in our league and come up against packed defences. We’re well used to it and know we have to wait for those opportunities.

“I’m glad to move into the next round, it’s a lovely tie. For us it’s a chance to go to the third round and we know we have to perform and do well.”
