FA Vase: Only way is Essex for Morpeth

Have your say

Morpeth Town will fly the flag on behalf of the Northern League in the FA Vase when they play the first leg of the semi-final tie in Essex against Bowers and Pitsea tomorrow.

Manager Nick Gray has watched his opponents and reckons if his team match the hosts’ work-rate, they will be in with a chance when the second leg takes place next week.

Gray said: “What we have got to make sure is that we are not adrift after tomorrow. This is the biggest game in the club’s history with a place in the final at Wembley at stake. What an incentive that is.”
