FA Vase/Thurlow Nunn round-up: Dodsworth the hero for Wroxham as Russell double buoys Royals
PUBLISHED: 21:26 30 November 2019 | UPDATED: 21:26 30 November 2019
Travis Dodsworth scored an extra time winner to book Wroxham’s place in the FA Vase fourth round with a 1-0 win over Wellingborough.
Chances were few and far between in the first half and former Norwich City striker Grant Holt passed up a golden chance to break the deadlock in the second period when he blazed a penalty over the bar.
It remained goalless after 90 minutes but the breakthrough finally came thanks to Dodsworth to secure £1,125 in prize money for the Yachtsmen.
Kirkley & Pakefield also secured their place in the last 32 of the competition as they claimed an impressive 2-0 win at Newport Pagnell.
