City seeking a good Vase run

Craig Gibbons 11th Oct, 2018

WORCESTER City continue on their road to Wembley this weekend when they play host to Long Eaton United.

The Blue & Whites will be looking to secure a place in the second round of the FA Vase on Saturday, with victory also securing £825 in prize money.

Extra-time must be played if the score is at level at 90 minutes.

Should the scoreline remain level, the tie will be replayed at Long Eaton on Tuesday (7.45pm).

City’s first ever foray into the Vase, a competition for clubs at Step Five to Step Seven on the non-League ladder, ended at the second round last season when Highgate United secured a 2-1 victory at the Victoria Ground.

John Snape’s men head into the clash looking to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to 13 games following Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Derbyshire outfit South Normanton Athletic.

City missed the chance to close the gap on Midland Premier leaders Ilkeston Town to one point after George Forsyth blazed a second half penalty over the bar.

Meanwhile, club chiefs are urging all fans to join the Worcester City Supporters Trust as they look to bring the Blue & Whites back home.

The call comes after a planning inspectorate threw out the city council’s rejection of a stadium being built at Perdiswell.

Chairman Steve Goode said: “The whole future of the club depends on a good, strong working relationship between the board, fans, local community and businesses.

“If City supporters and sports fans in Worcester want a football club, then they need to get behind the trust.

“I implore everybody to find out what work the trust do, what the Perdiswell application is and the proposal of what will happen.

“Unfortunately people make views on what they hear, rather than finding out for themselves.

“Perdiswell is an extremely strong case and excites me to be involved alongside the Supporters Trust.”
