Buildbase FA Vase

Bradford Town stormed into the fourth round of the FA Vase following a 4-0 win at home to Wessex Premier Division outfit, Team Solent. Danny Greaves side made the best possible start and were ahead inside the opening few minutes when Alex Monks converted an early penalty. After being knocked out of two cup competitions in the month of November, Bradford saved their best performance for the Vase and went on to double their lead on the half hour through Matty Morris. After half-time the hosts had to soak up a fair bit of pressure, but after doing so they were able to push on and add to their victory margin with Sam Jordan and Pete Sheppard striking late in the piece.

Bridgwater Town and Melksham Town will have to meet in a replay on Monday evening after they drew 2-2 after extra-time at Fairfax Park. All four goals came in a frantic 24-minute period at the beginning of the game, with Melksham taking less than 60 seconds to make the breakthrough when Jake Brown fired home. Tyne Govier then equalised from the spot to score for the second consecutive Saturday, before Ryan Burrows completed the turnaround just three minutes later. With only 24 minutes on the clock, Gary Higdon knocked home a penalty for his 18th goal in all competitions this season, but the goals then dried up for the remaining 100 minutes which has forced Monday’s replay.
