The weather had another big impact and this week took its toll on the FA Vase Second Round Proper games. EASTWOOD COMMUNITY’s visit to Lutterworth Town; DUNKIRK’s trip to Worcester City and SHERWOOD COLLIERY’s attractive game at Clay Cross Town all went ‘down the drain’. The only one to go ahead was the all East Midlands Counties League game at Regatta Way which saw HEANOR TOWN make progress in a tight encounter by 2-0. Jamie Sleigh broke the deadlock on half an hour and it stayed that way until Jordan Wheatley put a Kyle Daley corner into his own net seven minutes from the end.
The day’s best league performance came from CLIPSTONE who beat neighbours SHIREBROOK TOWN 4-0 with two goals from Jack Warwick and one each from Jonathan Collo and Jack Gibb. Shirebrook’s day got worse when Billy Simpson was sent off for a second yellow card on 88 minutes.
Equalling Clipstone’s performance at Shirebrook was GEDLING MINERS WELFARE who left visiting BORROWASH VICTORIA still looking for their first points of the season as they won 4-0. Courtney Hastings was their hero with a hat-trick beginning in the 16th minute and ending two minutes from the end, with a 31st minute second making up his threesome. Curtis Millward grabbed the home side’s other goal in the 36th minute.
There was late drama at Kirklington Road as the game remained goal-less until six minutes from the end. Then a goal from Dan Fullwood broke the deadlock and put visiting TEVERSAL in front. That lead lasted just three minutes before Lewis Weaver scored for RAINWORTH MINERS WELFARE to restore parity to the situation. Not to be outdone though, Jonathan Watkin put the visitors back in front as the game rolled into the first minute of stoppage time, and then, incredibly Teversal were awarded a penalty a dramatic seven minutes into stoppage time which Dan Fullwood converted to give them a 3-1 win.
CLIFTON ALL WHITES suffered their second home defeat of the week as INGLES took all three points home to Shepshed. James Brooks gave the visitors a 15th minute lead which they held until the hour when Ben Clark levelled with his second goal of the week. Daniel Tuck got the visitors winner fifteen minutes from the end.
There was even more drama at the Riverside where a Sam Moore 90th minute penalty gave BARROW TOWN a share of the spoils after Jordan Smith had put visiting KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE in front on the hour.
