James Tennant - one out of four at Moneyfields
Moneyfields 0 Thatcham Town 4
THATCHAM go into the hat for Monday’s Buildbase FA Vase Third Round draw after winning their battle of the table-toppers with the Wessex League leaders.
The game finished four men short with the Portsmouth side having three off and Thatcham having skipper Tom Melledew red-carded in the Copnor mud.
But Thatcham got the four that mattered, Josh Helmore giving them a first half lead and Shane Cooper-Clark adding a second following Melledew’s early second half dismissal.
Goals in the final three minutes from Joel Jacobs and James Tennant sealed Town’s place in the next round.
