Stow To Face Norwich In Vase
Stowmarket Town will host Norwich CBS in the third round of the Buildbase FA Vase at Greens Meadow next weekend.
The Old Gold and Blacks were handed a home tie in Monday’s draw, against either Norwich or May & Baker Eastbrook Community, who played out their second-round tie yesterday afternoon.
And it was a late goal from Craig Bussens which sealed a 2-1 win for the hosts Norwich, after Jamie North’s first-half opener was cancelled out by Carl Patten, for May & Baker, in the second half.
The Thurlow Nunn League First Division North side will make the trip to Greens Meadow next Saturday (3pm) to face Stow, with a place in the last 32 of the national competition up for grabs.
Ticket details for the third-round tie will be announced in due course, once confirmed by the board of directors.
Elsewhere yesterday, there was a winning start for new Stowmarket Town A manager Chris Burch, as his side won 4-3 away at Bacton United A in League C of the Macron Suffolk & Ipswich League.
A brace from James Graham, along with goals from Luke Bates and Kavanagh Warner, sealed a first win of the season for the A’s and took them off the bottom of the table.
