Bitton’s historic run continues

FA Vase:

Bitton are now just 180 minutes away from Wembley after storming to a 4-0 victory in their FA Vase quarter-final away at Wroxham. Recent signing Liam Bishop has been a god-send for Dan Langdon’s side, scoring his second hat-trick since joining on loan from Hereford FC last Friday. In fact, Bishop scored all four of Bitton’s goals in their victory over the Yachtsmen, opening the scoring after just 15 minutes. With half-time on the horizon, the game turned heavily in Bitton’s favour, with Bishop making it 2-0 thanks to a delightful chipped finish after being played in by Aysa Corrick. Just moments later, Wroxham were then reduced to ten men, with a straight red card awarded to the home side following a dangerous challenge. Bishop beat a pair of defenders before notching his hat-trick goal midway through the second half, with the youngster adding a perfect ending to the game by slotting home his fourth in the closing stages as Bitton booked their spot in the last four.

Unfortunately, Plymouth Parkway won’t be joining their Western League adversaries in the semi-finals after falling to a 2-0 defeat away at Hebburn Town. Following the long trip up north, Parkway suffered an unfortunate loss, with Cedwyn Scott scoring two first half goals for the Tyne and Wear side. Parkway keeper Kyle Moore earned plenty of plaudits for his performance between the sticks, but despite going close on a couple of occasions, the current Premier Division leaders were unable to grab a breakthrough.

Standing between Bitton and an historic trip to Wembley Stadium are Midland League Division One side Atherstone Town or Consett from the Northern League (Durham). The tie will take place over two legs, the first of which will be staged at Bitton on Saturday 21 March and the return game a week later on Saturday 28 March. Atherstone and Consett will attempt to play their postponed quarter final tie this Saturday afternoon.

In the other tie, the winners of the cancelled tie between Corinthian who currently lead the Southern Counties League East Premier Division and South Midlands League Leighton Town, and Northern League Hebburn Town.
