|This way to FA Vase action...|
Consider this a "Picture Special". Normal service will be resumed after Christmas when I'm not quite so busy with life.
Hamble Club FC (1) 2 v 1 (1) Horndean FC
Buildbase FA Vase Third Round Proper
Saturday 2nd December 2017

The second half was more end-to-end than the first. I couldn't call the result as either side could have scored the winner. It was the team in yellow who got it though, as Nathan Lynch looped a header in to the far corner after 64 minutes to win the tie. Hamble Club join Blackfield & Langley and Newport (IW) as the Wessex league's representatives in Monday's draw for the last 32, which will remain semi-regionalised before the competition goes fully national in February.
|It wouldn't be right if I didn't finish off with the traditional arty shot...|
Now I know how to write a match report in 15 minutes flat! I'll make more effort next time, I promise. HAH will be back after Christmas. Have a fun few weeks.
