Whitley Bay Reach 3rd Consecutive FA Vase Final

Whitley Bay will attempt to secure a place in football history in May when they meet Coalville Town in the 2011 FA Vase Final. Winners in 2009 & 2010 now the Bay hope to make it 3 on the bounce, a feat never achieved in the competitions history.

They reached the final with an emphatic 5-2 aggregate victory over Poole Town winning the away leg 2-1 thanks to two very late goals, and they completed the job thanks to a Paul Chow  hat-trick. It could have been very different had the Dorset side mamaged to keep their composure better, as they led in both games in the early stages, however Whitley Bay have shown a never say die attitude and they will go to Wembley as justifiable favourites, and we expect them to complete their historic treble.

Final Score 3-1 and 5-2 on aggregate

Coalville Town have reached their 1st ever FA Vase Final after a resounding aggregate win over the strongly fancied Kings Lynn Town.

Callum Woodward, Jerome Murdock and Matt Gardener all scored for Coalville in their second leg away tie as they grabbed a 3-2 win to make the final score 6-2 on aggregate.

Robbie Harris second-two for Kings Lynn in the second half  to put a little respectability on the score sheet however they will have to be content with a solid crowd of 2,345 offering some compensation for missing out on Wembley.

Coalville will now face Whitley Bay in the Final, who are bidding for an unprecedented 3rd consecutive win.

Poole Town F.C.

Whitley Bay who have won the last 2 FA Vase Finals took a massive step towards a historic treble as they marched into the quarter finals with a comfortable 5-1 win over Dunstable Town. They were trailing 1-0 to Dubstable at half time and it took until the 57th minute for the holders to level the scores. Thereafter further goals from Chow & Robinson soon had the game back under Whitley’s control and a late capitulation which saw Kerr add to his opener and Kerr grab his second both in injury made the score more emphatic.

Whitley Bay are now favourites to lift the trophy closely followed in the betting by Kings Lynn who had a big win over local rivals St Neots Town, and Poole Town who pulled off the result of the round in beating Spennymoor Town 3-2.  

Coalville Town finally won through with 2 goals in extra time in their 3-1 win over Holbrook Sports.

The FA Vase Quarter Finalists are:

Kings Lynn Beat Local Rivals St Neots Town in FA Vase Fifth Round

Kings Lynn pulled off an impressive 2-1 win over St Neots Town to advance to the quarter finals of the 2011 FA Vase competition.  

The game was exciting and close as would be expected given this was a local East Anglian match up and the fact they are 1st and second in the United Counties Premier League. The leaders St Neots had just the better of the early possession and Stefan Moore missed a great chance when clean through and only some quick thinking by Kings Lynn goalkeeper Alex Street kept the score blank.

St Neots had the best of the second half, however after the break Kings Lynn started to get into the game and it was no surprise when Jack Defty bundled the ball home to make the score 1-0. The visitors had looked the better side rallied though and they leveled soon afterwards from the penalty spot. The game was decided by a goalkeeping error which Robbie Harris pounced upon to make the scores 2-1 ensuring it was Kings Lynn who were the pride of East Anglia on the day and they will collect the £1,300 chq from the ‘s prize fund.

The attendance was 1,641; Kings Lynn highest for many years.

2011 FA Vase 5th Round Draw

The draw for the FA Vase 5th Round has given Whitley Bay a home tie with Dunstable, which will be welcome following their 700+ mile round trip in the previous round.

One of the favourites Spennymoor Town from County Durham, have a tricky  match against Poole not helped by Dorset being around 350 miles away. Still it could have been worse as fellow  Northern League Division One rivals Billingham Synthonia will testify. They have an even more gruelling trip to Cornwall to face South West Peninsula League side Torpoint Athletic.

There are still two ties to play but the latest draw is below and the winners will collect a chq for £1,300 and gain a place in the Quarter Finals.

FA Vase Round 4 Results Whitley Bay March On

There was goals aplenty in the fourth round of the 2011 FA Vase but one of the most notable results was Whitley Bay’s excellent 2-1 win away to Herne Bay, which keeps their dream of a hat trick of FA Trophy wins alive.
Current favourites Spennymoor Town cruised into the Fifth Round with a comfortable 5-1 demolition of Cadbury Heath and Leverstock Green cruised past Bemerton Heath Harlequins4-1 helped by two goals from Lewis Pritchard. The days biggest winners  Leiston who hit Guildford City for six while Stansted FC jetted through with another 4-1 win away at Bodmin Town.

Dunstable Town had a pretty easy time of things against  Willand Rovers beating the much weakened side 2-0 at Creasy Park. Willand were so short of personnel they could only name three subs.

Gresley v St Neots Town  & Holbrook Sports v Lancing are due to be played on 29/01/11.

The winners all collected £1,200 a welcome bonus, although for some the traveling costs will have eroded this figure.
