Buildbase FA Vase First Qualifying Round
Clapton 1 Catholic United 6 

Catholic United put a sorry Clapton to the sword as the Olympian League side netted six at Parkside to make their debut in the competition a very memorable one indeed. The visitors dominated the early exchanges and took the lead with a Vaughan header, and the underdogs from Step Seven were in dreamland when they doubled their lead after just twelve minutes as a Kearney corner went straight in. And the side from the Olympian Premier were three goals clear and in total command soon after when a wonderful move ended with Thomas slotting home, and they reached the break three goals to the good as they were totally outclassing their Step Five hosts. The Tons needed the next goal to stay in the contest and duly pulled one back when Aziz unleashed an effort from twenty-five yards, but immediately after Catholic restored their three-goal cushion when Jacobs found the bottom corner, and then they sealed the contest when adding a fifth as Kent sent a free-kick towards goal which keeper Gomes got a hand to but could not keep out. Things then got worse for Clapton after they were reduced to ten men following a second yellow card for a poor challenge, and Catholic then added a sixth when Kearney slotted home from eighteen yards out. Catholic now travel to either Lopes Tavares or Harwich & Parkeston in the next round.

 

Park View 1 West Essex 1 (Match Abandoned After 87 Minutes Due To Series Injury

Park View and West Essex were locked together at 1-1 with three minutes remaining when a serious injury meant the game had to be abandoned. The visitors had the better of a goalless first half but found the hosts keeper in fine form, keeping his side in the contest, and then totally against the run of play the hosts went in front early in the second period when netting brilliantly off the post. It looked like it wasn’t going to be the visitor’s day in front of goal but then substitute Izzy Ogedi-Uzokwe leapt highest to level for the ESL side with eight minutes to go. But things did not end well as Mihael went down for the visitors with a serious injury, resulting in a second yellow and therefore a red card for the home side, meaning an ambulance had to be called and the game being abandoned after 87 minutes.

 

Premier Division

Tower Hamlets 1 Redbridge 5 

Taylor Tombides netted a brace as Redbridge netted five at Mile End to go fourth after seeing off Tower Hamlets. Tombides put the visitors ahead eight minutes before the break, and a minute before half time Daniel Gilchrist added a second from the penalty spot before Kane Hearn then added a third in first half stoppage time. And incredibly Redbridge added a fourth before the break to make it four in nine minutes when James Barlow scored meaning the visitors went into the break four goals to the good. Tombides made it five midway through the second half and although Hamlets pulled one back with four minutes to go the visitors cruised to the points.

Buildbase FA Vase First Qualifying Round
Cockfosters 1 Coggeshall United 2 (aet) 

Coggeshall netted their first win in all competitions this season after an extra time winner from Lewis Soraf gave them victory over Cockfosters at Chalk Lane. Ricky Loveridge slotted the visitors ahead in the 71st minute before Ryan Wade levelled from the spot with seven minutes remaining, and then Coggeshall skipper Mensah was sent off in stoppage time meaning the visitors would have to play the whole of extra time with ten-men. But it mattered not as Soraf struck with six minutes of the extra period to go to set up a home tie with Long Melford in the next round.

 

FC Clacton 3 Southend Manor 0 

Manor are out of the Vase after a disappointing defeat at FC Clacton. Ribchester, a Clowsley penalty and a Lartey strike helped the hosts to a comfortable passage into the next round.

 

Hashtag United 2 Leyton Athletic 0 

Hashtag United are through to the next round after a comfortable win over Leyton Athletic at Chadfields. George Smith powered home a Lee Hursit corner after just nine minutes before Hursit then turned goalscorer after converting a Josh Osude tee up, and the hosts now travel to Frenford in the next round.

 

Hoddesdon Town 1 Stanway Rovers 2 

A goal from Tom Holdstock and a late winner from Jordan Blackwell saw Stanway Rovers dump Hoddesdon Town out of the the Vase at Lowfield.

 

Ilford 1 Enfield 2 

Enfield came from behind to defeat Ilford at Cricklefield to set up a Second Qualifying Round tie at home to Enfield Borough. The hosts took an early lead through Jerold Cobblah but Enfield levelled after 11 minutes thanks to Michael Salako, and then Josh Woodcock low drive late on in the first half proved to be the winner.

 

Sporting Bengal United 0 Wormley Rovers 1 

Sporting Bengal United are out after a Ben Quarrington-Carter penalty saw Wormley Rovers into the next round where they take on Takeley at Station Road.

 

Takeley 6 Burnham Ramblers 1 

Takeley put a recent wobble behind them to hit six at Station Road against Burnham Ramblers to set up a home tie with Wormley Rovers in the next round. Lewis Deemer netted first half brace before Glen O’Hanlon made it three right on half time, before a Nick Barrett penalty six minutes after the break made it 4-0. Adam Allen pulled one back with ten minutes remaining but Nick Barrett added another before Jason Todd capped a fine day for the hosts with a sixth and final goal five minutes from time.

 

Wodson Park 2 Sawbridgeworth Town 1 

Sawbo’s retched season continued as they were dumped out of the Vase by Wodson Park meaning they have now exited both FA competitions to Step Six outfits this season.

 

Woodford Town 1 St Margaretsbury 2 

Kyle Roberts netted a 93rd minute winner for visitors St Margaretsbury as they saw off Woodford Town at The Harlow Arena. Roberts had put the visitors ahead midway through the first half but saw Vlad Sighiartau level early in the second period, but Roberts netted a stoppage time winner to set up an away tie in Suffolk against Whitton United in the next round.
