Isthmian League Maldon & Tiptree bid to repeat last year's giantkilling exploits when they host Morecambe in the FA Cup first round on Sunday. The Jammers won 2-1 at League Two Leyton Orient last season, but will history repeat itself when League Two Morecambe visit Park Drive?

Maldon & Tiptree Form


Maldon & Tiptree play their football in the eighth tier in the Isthmian League and have had to come through five rounds of qualifying to reach the FA Cup first round for the second year running.

The run began in September with a 1-0 win over Hertford in the preliminary round. Wayne Brown's side won 3-0 against Haverhill Rovers in the first qualifying round, before needing penalties to get past Grays Athletic after a 2-2 draw.

Matching 1-0 wins over Braintree Town in the third qualifying round and Harrigay Borough in the fourth qualifying round sealed Maldon & Tiptree's place in the first round draw. Substitute Shomari Barnwell scored an 88th minute winner from the penalty spot against Harringay.

It has been a busy start to the season for the Jammers, who have also played five Isthmian League games and two FA Trophy qualifiers. They are yet to be beaten, winning five of those seven games and drawing the other two, and sit second in the Isthmian League.

Maldon & Tiptree Team News


Shomari Barnwell was the hero of the last round and the forward has scored four goals in his last three games. Forward Scott Kemp and midfielder Aaron William-Bushell have both scored twice during the qualifying run and pose a goal threat.

Kojo Awotwi has rejoined Maldon & Tiptree for a second spell with the club having signed from Welling United in the Conference South. He was part of last season's FA Cup exploits.

Morecambe Form


Morecambe find themselves in the top half of the League Two table after winning five of their 11 matches so far this season.

The Shrimpers started the campaign well, but have struggled for form over the last month. Derek Adams' side have won one of their last six games, a 1-0 win over Tranmere last Saturday thanks to an Adam Phillips penalty.

Morecambe drew 2-2 at home to Exeter in midweek with Carlos Mendes Gomes and Stephen Hendrie getting the goals. But they have also lost to Crawley (4-0), Forest Green (2-1) and Carlisle (3-1) in recent weeks.

Only bottom of the table Southend have conceded more goals than Morecambe in League Two this season. The Shrimpers have shipped 21 goals in 11 games. 

Morecambe Team News


Midfielder Aaron Wildig missed the midweek draw with Exeter and may also be ruled out of the trip to Maldon & Tiptree.

Centre-back Harry Davis and forward Cole Stockton are available again after sitting out two games due to coronavirus protocols, but defender Liam Gibson remains on the sidelines with injury.
