WODSON PARK and ST MARGARETSBURY are safely through to the second qualifying round of the FA Vase but there was disappointment for SAWBRIDGEWORTH and HODDESDON. Isaac Adeyemi gave WODSON PARK the lead against SAWBRIDGEWORTH after 61 minutes only for the visitors to level 3 minutes later thanks to Oscar Hollington‘s thunderbolt. 17 year old Ben de Lacey Turner was the home hero scoring the winner 4 minutes from time. Stanway Rovers will be WODSON PARK‘s next opponents after they came from behind to beat former Vase winners HODDESDON TOWN 2-1. Kyle Roberts was the hero for ST MARGARETSBURY scoring a brace in the 2-1 win over Woodford Town at Harlow Arena. Saints now face a trip to Whitton United in the next round.
WARE kept up their unbeaten record in the Bet Victor League Division One Central thanks to Jordan Watson‘s first goal of the season which cancelled out Andrew Crossley’s 33rd minute opener for home side Chertsey Town. There was no joy for HERTFORD though as they went down 4-1 at Hanwell Town Luke Gymer scoring a late consolation for Ben Herd’s team.
WELWYN GARDEN CITY are up to second in the Southern League Division One Central despite finishing their 2-0 victory at Halesowen with 9 men. Goals from Jay Rolfe and George Ironton took the Citizens into a two goal lead before Rolfe was dismissed for a second yellow card. Nicky Ironton’s team held out in a tense second period going down to 9 in the final minute when Carl Mensah was red carded.
