Town rescued from the bench

THATCHAM TOWN have again been given home advantage in the second round of the Buildbase FA Vase when they entertain Broadbridge Heath at Waterside Park on November 11.

The Sussex side are below Saturday's opponents Horsham YMCA in the Southern Counties League and are involved in their best-ever season in the Vase after Saturday's 3-0 home win over Kensington Borough.

Thatcham won through 2-1 at home to YMCA with substitutes Anthony White and Jemel Johnson striking in the final 20 minutes to take Kingfishers into the second round draw.

They trailed after 17 minutes when defender Babs Jarra’s attempted back-pass to goalkeeper Chris Rackley was intercepted and tucked home by Mark Cave.

Thatcham had the chances to hit back against the Southern Counties League side but found goalkeeper Aaron Jeal in outstanding form and when he was beaten, Harry Grant’s shot came back off the post.

Manager Danny Robinson introduced White and Johnson just past the hour, and White headed home a Tom Browne free kick before Shane Cooper-Clark played in Johnson for the winner.
