FOOTBALL: Away ties in FA Vase draw

Game over at Holbeach United on Saturday
Game over at Holbeach United on Saturday

Holbeach United and Deeping Rangers have been drawn away in the Buildbase FA Vase second round.

The Tigers face a trip to Walsall Wood - who knocked them out 4-1 at the same stage two years ago - while the Clarets will go to Godmanchester Rovers.

Spencer Tinkler tucked in the only goal as Holbeach knocked out South Normanton Athletic at Carter’s Park on Saturday.

Walsall Wood, currently second in Midland League Division One, beat Atherstone Town 1-0.

Rick Drury, Nick Jackson and Matt Warfield were part of the Holbeach side who conceded three second-half goals at Walsall Wood in November 2015.

First-half efforts by Scott Coupland, David Burton-Jones and Scott Mooney sent Deeping on their way to a 3-1 victory at FC Bolsover on Saturday.

Godmanchester, seventh in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division, won by the same scoreline at Hanley Town.

Deeping boss Michael Goode said: “We played them in pre-season but they have strengthened recently and picked up a few wins.

“At least it’s only 40 miles down the road and they are not totally unknown to us.

“Most of the teams in the second round are pretty decent but our record in this competition over a couple of years has been poor.

“We played really well on Saturday and looked clinical in front of goal during the first half.

“We could have been 5-0 up before they scored. But we got the right approach and a response to the cup game at Holbeach United in midweek.

“Now we can think about playing Sileby Rangers twice this week and Wisbech Town away next Tuesday before the FA Vase at Godmanchester.”

The second round ties will be played on Saturday, November 11.
