Great Yarmouth Town are still alive in the FA Vase after a thrilling penalty shoot-out win at Framlingham Town.

Great Yarmouth Town are still alive in the FA Vase after a thrilling penalty shoot-out win at Framlingham Town.

Framlingham took the lead in the first half and it became even more of an uphill struggle before the break when Elvijs Putnins was shown a straight red card as the referee adjudged the keeper to have prevented a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Billy Wenn took the keeper's gloves and would turn out to be the hero.

Despite being down to 10 men, somehow Yarmouth stayed in the game in the second half and their moment arrived in injury time when Liam Moriarty struck to send the game into extra time.

Wenn went on to score in the shoot-out as well as save one as the Bloaters ran out 4-2 winners to confirm their place in the next round.
