Away to Littlehampton in the FA Vase

FA Vase Replay 10 Goal Thriller!

Following the replay at Littlehampton Town tonight(Wednesday) against Abingdon FC ,Littlehampton came out victors after a 7-3 goal feast of a game.

The game was scheduled to kick off at 7-30 presumably to give the part timers from Abingdon half a chance to get up the next morning for work. However the arrival of Abingdon to the Sussex coast was delayed and the eventual kick off was at 8pm.Littlehampton soon went into a 2-0 lead and it could of been more but for a missed penalty kick.

The half time score was 3-1 to Littlehampton who soon increased their lead within 2 minutes of the second half to make the scoreline 4-1.Abingdon then found the net to make it 4-2  but on 58 mins Littlehampton scored again to make it 5-2.Not to be outdone Abingdon joined in with the scoring to get the next goal to make it 5-3 but Littlehampton stepped up their game yet again to blast in 2 more before the final whistle to put this replay to bed winning 7-3.

Ashford will do well to learn from this game and a tight defence coupled with a couple of goals from our forward line should probably be the best way to get an away result in Sussex for this the 3rd round proper of the F A Vase. It seems fairly clear that Abingdon attempted to goal score their way past Littlehampton, getting a 4-4 draw at Abingdon and a 7-3 high scoring encounter to eventually undo them on the Sussex coast.

All to play for then this Saturday with the weather reports saying a sunny but cold weekend the game offers loads for both sets of supporters. Kick off  time is  3pm at The Sportsfield on St Flora’s Road Littlehampton postcode for the sat nav is………..
