Athletic in hunt for another Vase scalp

First published in Local Sport by

BRANTHAM Athletic are scenting another FA Vase scalp.

Tony Hall’s side have already battled into the fifth-round proper – the last 16 – and eliminated four-time winners Whitley Bay.

Now they are preparing to take on more fancied opposition when they host Shildon.

The Northern League division one side are tipped among the favourites to go all the way to Wembley Stadium.

But Hall believes his side are capable of an upset tomorrow – if they play as they are capable of.

“It’s a one-off cup tie and we’re treating it as the final," he said.

“If all my players turn up and are at the races, we’ll have a very good chance."
