May double helps Charlton ease past Cray Valley

5 months ago 96

Clinical Charlton Athletic survived a scare from eighth-tier Cray Valley Paper Mills before comfortably winning an entertaining FA Cup first-round replay.

The League One side took the lead when Alfie May finished with aplomb after pulling down Lucas Ness' ball over the top but the Millers levelled before the break through Kyrell Lisbie's penalty, despite the striker being felled just outside the area by Addicks goalkeeper Sam Walker.

The tie was effectively ended in the first five minutes of the second half as Miles Leaburn powered a header home before May got his second with an angled finish after rounding home keeper Sam Freeman.

George Dobson's fierce long-range effort made it 4-1 before subs Tyreece Campbell and debutant Micah Mbick completed the scoring as the semi-professional side ran out of energy.

Michael Appleton's men now face a trip to League Two Gillingham in the second round.
