Outwell Swifts 0 Chatteris Town 0

(Chatteris won 2-0 on penalties)

CHATTERIS moved into the quarter-finals and secured a home draw against Comberton United after overcoming a stubborn Outwell side on penalties with the Lilies having an unlikely hero in Richard Allen.

The young forward is the Lilies top scorer this season but swapped his shooting boots for goalkeeper gloves at half-time due to a rib injury to regular keeper Ben Collett. Allen not only made two brilliant saves in extra time but also saved two penalties in the shoot-out.

After Chatteris were unable to make their dominance count in 120 thrilling minutes Steve Reid and Stuart Porter scored their penalties while Outwell missed all four of theirs.
