Bloaters suffer late heartbreak in FA Vase

Hullbridge Sports 1 Great Yarmouth Town 0

Great Yarmouth Town made a heartbreaking exit from the FA Vase as a late goal from Hullbridge Sports condemned them to an undeserved defeat.

The Bloaters had given as good as they got in a scrappy game when Charlie Little popped up to slide home an 85th minute winner for the Essex side after some poor defending. After a disjointed first half with few clear-cut chances Yarmouth gave a good account of themselves after the break and almost went ahead just before the goal when a Connor Deeks free-kick was spilt by keeper Bobby Mason.

The Bloaters were unable to force the ball home in a frantic scramble and a scuffle then broke out which saw both Mason and Yarmouth's Luke Goreham receive red cards.
