Although the 8th January 2011 will be more of notice as its FA Cup 3rd Round day there are a few FA Vase 3rd round ties to be settled including current holders and 2009 winners Whitley Bay, who are looking to make history by winning three on the bounce. If the do win it would be their 4th win as they also took the trophy home in 2002. A win would give them a trip to Herne Bay in the last 32 on 22/01/11.
Bemerton Heath Harlequins finished 3rd in the Wessex League last season – their highest ever placing and they are currently surpassing this lying top. They have only been on the go since 1989 and we will be watching to see how far they can go this season.
The 8 ties still to be settled are:
Westfields v Billingham Synthonia
Dunkirk v Ashington
Shildon v Coalville Town
Whitley Bay v AFC Liverpool
Dunston UTS v Heather St Johns
Gornal Athletic v Runcorn Town
Beckenham Town v Kings Lynn Town
Bitton AFC v Newport (IOW)
St Blazey v Bemerton Heath Harlequins
