Warrington Rylands 3 Binfield 2

Buildbase FA Vase Final

Hat-trick hero Elliott Nevitt fired Warrington Rylands to the Buildbase FA Vase title for the first time in their 115-year history, as David McNabb’s men powered to a 3-2 win over Uhlsport Hellenic League side Binfield at Wembley. It was the first hat trick scored in the FA Vase Final since 1979 when Doug Young scored a treble for Billericay Town as they beat Almondsbury Greenway 4-1.

The newly-promoted Northern Premier League West side endured early pressure but went in front when Nevitt volleyed home in the 25th minute after Joe Coveney’s clever headed pass.

Liam Ferdinand equalised for Binfield three minutes before half-time but Nevitt’s penalty moments later restored Rylands’ lead, before the striker - who also scored the winner for Campfield FC in the FA Sunday Cup final recently - added a third after the interval.

Ferdinand completed his brace with little over 20 minutes to go to keep Binfield in the game, but the Moles were ultimately unable to avoid defeat on their first visit to the home of English football.

The match started at a blistering tempo with Binfield looking to stamp their authority from the off, and skipper Sean Moore was at the centre of two potent attacks that won a couple of early corners for the Berkshire side.

A seventh-minute Kensley Maloney free-kick caused problems for the Rylands defence before Moore eventually fired over, but the Blues went straight down the other end and Stephen Milne crossed into a dangerous area to keep goalkeeper Chris Grace on his toes.

As both sides continued to find plenty of space to create chances Binfield defender Dave Hancock had to be on red alert to clear a piercing Rylands ball over the top with Nevitt breathing down his neck.

The ball was in the net in the 22nd minute after Milne latched onto Rick Smith’s sumptuous pass and rounded Grace before finishing, but his effort was chalked off for offside by referee John Busby.

Rylands continued to grow in confidence and Milne went close yet again just three minutes later with Grace out of position, but the ball was eventually recycled and Coveney headed into Nevitt’s path who volleyed home to make it 1-0.

Milne’s influence on the game continued to grow with his pace in behind causing Binfield plenty of problems, but the Moles hit back and defender Tom Willment steered a long-range effort wide shortly after the half-hour mark.

Nevitt had eyes on a second goal after a cleverly disguised pass from Milne, but after Liam Gavin blocked Binfield broke on the counter attack and Ferdinand headed in Moore’s cross to make it 1-1.

That scoreline lasted a matter of seconds however, as Gavin brought down Charlie Doyle in the box immediately after the restart and Nevitt made no mistake from the resulting penalty to re-establish Rylands’ advantage.

The match resumed in quieter fashion than the first half had ended as Binfield looked to level terms once again, but their uphill task became steeper when Nevitt headed in his third goal just before the hour.

Binfield refused to lie down though and Graeme McCall had to produce a stunning close-range save from Oliver Harris’ shot at the far post following a looping cross from substitute Josh Howell.

That sniff of goal seemed to spark Binfield into life and Ferdinand reduced the arrears with a strike from the edge of the box that made it 3-2 in the 67th minute.

With the game’s momentum somewhat in Binfield’s favour Kane Drummond wasted a chance to double Rylands’ lead, with his shot too close to goalkeeper Grace.

And though both sides enjoyed chances in the closing stages no-one was able to add their name to the scoresheet, with Warrington seeing out the contest to get their hands on the coveted trophy. 


Hornchurch 3 Hereford FC 1

Buildbase FA Trophy Final

Seventh-tier Hornchurch came from behind to beat National League North Hereford 3-1 and claim their first-ever Buildbase FA Trophy triumph at Wembley. They became the first Step 3 Club to win the Trophy for 40 years, since Bishops Stortford beat Sutton United 1-0 in 1981.

Tom Owen-Evans finished off a well-worked set-piece move early on to put Hereford in front, as Josh Gowling’s men controlled much of the opening 45 minutes.

But Hornchurch were much improved after the break and substitute Charlie Ruff levelled terms, before late Liam Nash and Ellis Brown goals sealed a dramatic win for the Urchins.

While Hereford fell short on the five-year anniversary of Buildbase FA Vase heartbreak, victory for Mark Stimson’s men completed a remarkable Buildbase FA Trophy campaign that had seen Hornchurch knock out Notts County in the semi-finals.

It was a fast start at football HQ as both teams looked to gain the upper hand in the early stages, with Nash shooting at goalkeeper Brandon Hall for Hornchurch moments after Hereford’s Michael Bakare was denied by a last-ditch tackle.

The Bulls gradually grew in confidence and Bakare’s eighth-minute cross just evaded Joey Butlin who had his eyes set on goal, but it wasn’t long before Gowling’s charges got their noses in front.

A cleverly-worked corner routine saw the ball spread to Owen-Evans on the edge of the area, and his controlled strike took a wicked deflection before rolling past Joe Wright to make it 1-0 in the 13th minute.

Butlin went close to doubling Hereford’s advantage 14 minutes later with a header from Kyle Finn’s deep cross, but Mickey Parcell did just enough to put the 28-year-old off at the back post.

The momentum of the game was seemingly swaying in Hereford’s favour, and Bakare attempted an audacious chip that sailed over shortly before the half-hour mark.

As the interval neared Chris Camwell saw his free-kick well saved by Wright, after Rickie Hayles had gifted Hereford the chance by bringing down Butlin who had dispossessed the Urchins defender.

There was a bright end to the opening 45 minutes for Hornchurch though as Christou broke through one-on-one with Hall before being penalised for a foul on Luke Haines, and Brown flicked a long throw goalwards.

Hornchurch continued where they left off following the restart and Christou went close with a fast-reaction shot after some neat play by Sam Higgins.

Hereford offered a reminder of their quality soon after with Parcell having to be alert to steer a teasing Finn ball to safety, before Bulls skipper Jared Hodgkiss headed over soon after.

But the Urchins kept fighting and substitutes Chris Dickson and Ruff combined well soon after being introduced, with the latter eventually shooting tamely into Hall’s hands.

With less than 20 minutes to go Nash thought he had snatched an equaliser after chipping over Hall, only for Hodgkiss to clear the ball off the line to keep his team in front.

But seconds later the goal did arrive, Ruff reacting quickest after Jamie Grimes headed onto his own crossbar from Christou’s long throw.

Hereford reacted well with Finn and Bakare both having shots at goal, but Nash edged Hornchurch in front with a close-range effort four minutes from time.

And as Hereford pushed forward with hopes of staying in the game Brown found space down the right flank, evading Haines and eventually shooting past Hall to put the result beyond doubt.
