Bromyard Town playing their first ever FA Vase game, overcame Hellenic League Premier Division outfit Harrow Hill in a match which came to life with a flurry of late goals.


The Town got off to a flying start when Luke Willetts broke down the left wing to square the ball across the penalty area for Andy Chalmers to tap in from 12 yards.

The Forest of Dean based visitors bounced back and Neil Cornish levelled the scores when he caught goal keeper Jamie Lambert flat footed curling in a 25 yard free kick.

Scott Morris had the opportunity to put Bromyard back in front in the 30th minute when he steered a header just wide of the target and again in the 40th minute he saw a header brilliantly saved by the goalkeeper Andrew Reid and then from the resulting corner kick Morris headed against the crossbar.

The second half saw the visitors test out the Town defence for a period but in the 70th minute Darren Gwynne restored the Town's advantage when he netted with a header from a corner kick but Bobby Clarke equalised just two minutes later. With extra time looking inevitable Morris had a shot blocked but the ball ran to Luke Willetts who put Bromyard back in front.

The same two players combined in the last minute of normal time to look to have put the tie beyond doubt but a defensive mix up led to an own goal and gave Harrow Hill a last ditch lifeline, but in a hectic final few moments Bromyard held out to book their passage.
