FA Vase: London Colney 0 Holbeach United 1

‘Unbelievable’ was how joint-boss Graham Drury described the goal which sent Holbeach United into the last 32 of the FA Vase.

Lee Beeson fired into the top corner of the net as the Tigers collected £1,500 prize money to stay on the road to Wembley.

Drury said: “That goal was as good as I’ve seen for a long time.

“Lee Dube played the ball back and Beeson hit it first time from 25 yards. You couldn’t have placed it better with your hand right into the top corner.

“If it had been shown on Match of the Day, it would have been goal of the month and challenging for goal of the season.”

Drury felt Holbeach’s win was deserved as they held onto the first-half lead.

He added: “It was a big bonus that they had three players suspended and it took the heart out of the midfield.

“We had the majority of the play but the second half was a lot tighter. We had to be more resilient.

“I thought Danny Spencer was immense. He swept up well with Kern Miller at the back while Nick Conroy was steady when called upon.

“Danny Steadman hit the bar with a chance to double the lead. But we managed to stand firm and get another good result away from home.”
