In this week’s game, Tadley Calleva First Team had their second round qualifying game for the FA Vase to play. They came up against an in-from Chertsey Town who were top of their respective league. It took 93 minutes for the first goal of the game but unfortunately it fell to Chertsey. Smith took a quick free kick, passing to Guentchev, who put the ball home over the on-rushing Sean O’Brien. Two minutes later Jupp made an impressive save to deny Tadley an equaliser in the last minute of the game, but the tie finished with just the one goal with the home side going out of the FA Vase. Next Saturday, the First Team are up against Team Solent in the Wessex Premier Division at Barlow’s Park.
