Irish Striker Amond Continues Remarkable FA Cup Record With Last-Gasp Goal

Irish Striker Amond Continues Remarkable FA Cup Record With Last-Gasp Goal

Newport County's Padraig Amond was once again the star of the FA Cup show when he scored late to secure a 1-0 win over Maldon & Tiptree in the second round.

It means since his goal against Tottenham in January 2018, the striker has scored in every round for Newport, a run which currently stands at eight in a row.

The former Shamrock Rovers man was at hand to head home a cross from George Nurse and ensure the Welsh side enter the draw for the next round. Amond is now closing in on Stan Mortensen's all-time record of 12 consecutive rounds.
