Ramsgate’s brave run to the second round of the FA Cup came to a crushing end at AFC Wimbledon.

The League Two outfit had no time for romance as they proved too strong, fast and sharp for the eighth-tier Kent part-timers, 85 places below them in the pyramid, to book a home tie against Championship high-flyers Ipswich in the third round.

Rams goalkeeper Tom Hadler, an England Schoolboy international, prevented a double-figure scoreline with a remarkable performance, repeatedly denying Johnnie Jackson’s side with a series of saves and blocks.

He could not, however, stop Jake Reeves, Ali Al-Hamadi and Josh Neufville putting the tie beyond any doubt before half-time.

The Dons are a formidable force at Plough Lane, racking up their fifth home win on the trot, scoring 18 goals in the process, and they piled on the pressure after the break with further goals from Connor Lemonheigh-Evans and Al-Hamadi’s second.
