Horsham marched on in the FA Trophy this afternoon with a 3-1 victory away to Barkingside.

The Hornets eased into the third and final qualifying round and pocketed another healthy £3,250 from the prize pool in the process.

The visitors trailed 1-0 after just nine minutes as Joe Ellul netted for Barkingside, although Jamie Ampleford soon restored parity after some poor defending from the hosts.

Tony Nwachukwu then put Horsham ahead before the break, while Ampleford added his second to seal the win on 65 minutes with a fantastic strike.

The draw for the next round takes places on Monday.

Horsham: Williams, Hamilton, Charman, Gilbert, King, Nwachukwu, Morley, Napper, Smith, Ampleford, Hadi. Subs: Williams, Frankland, Marriott, Akande, Tarbie.
