Another home Vase incentive for Sholing
1:30pm Monday 17th February 2014 in Sport
SHOLING will be fighting for the glittering prize of a home quarter-final in the FA Vase if they get past Larkhall Athletic in the last 16.
This morning's draw pitted the winners of this Saturday’s delayed fifth round tie at home to Cambridgeshire outfit Wisbech Town.
The Fenmen - currently seventh in the United Counties League Premier Division – are one of just two teams definitely through to the last eight following another rain-battered weekend.
They edged through 2-1 at Hadleigh United on Saturday to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 1986.
FA Vase quarter-final draw (matches to be played on Saturday, March 8): East Preston or St Andrews v Spennymoor Town or Newcastle Benfield, Eastbourne Utd or Morpeth v Ampthill Town, Sholing or Larkhall Athletic v Wisbech Town, Dunston UTS or Brightlingsea Regent v West Auckland or Hallen.
