Brantham's Vase dream is extinguised by Shildon

First published in Local Sport by

BRANTHAM Athletic's FA Vase dream is over after losing 4-1 in this afternoon's fifth-round tie at home to Shildon.

Tony Hall's side were hoping to book their place in the quarter-finals, but fell behind as early as the 16th minute.

The Durham visitors then added two more goals inside four second-half minutes, before Simon Mann pulled one back after a great pass by Josh Mayhew.

However, any hopes of a comeback were quickly killed off when Shildon added their fourth from the penalty spot, after a foul by Alex Drennan.
