Marske United

The Fifth Round of this season's FA Vase was finally completed today when Marske United won 3-0 against St. Ives Town at Cambridge City's ground, with goals from Wilson, Thompson and Swailes (whilst the FA website incorrectly reports that Diamond, Newton and 'Swales' scored...good grief...)


Next Saturday's Quarter-Final line up is now complete:

Whitley Bay v Biggleswade Town
Lowestoft Town v Bideford AFC
Needham Market v Chalfont St Peter
Glossop North End v Marske United

Glossop will therefore host Northern League Division Two outfit Marske United at Surrey Street on 28th February 2009. Kick-off 3pm.

That leaves just enough time for me to plan my trip, put some petrol in the tank and set the Sat Nav to "home". I can't wait.

I had the pleasure of visiting Marske on the FA Cup trail 2.5 years ago. Super little club - and I looked forward to following them away on Saturday. See

Set your sat nav for 'Glossop Brook Road' rather than Surrey Street - the latter is blocked half way and a sat nav will take you to the blocked side.

If you need any info, i do most of the North End press...feel free to give me a shout on itsthehaggarts@aol.com
