Late own goal sends Bay pack­ing

The Non-League Football Paper - - FA VASE 2ND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Gary King


FOUR-TIMES FA Vase win­ners Whitley Bay crashed out at lo­cal ri­vals Whick­ham.

The hosts edged home in ex­tra­time at the Glebe. Andy Bul­ford shot across goal and Jack Foalle shot just over the bar in a cagey open­ing half hour.

Whick­ham debu­tant Matty Pat­ti­son was the stand-out player in a scrappy af­fair, the schemer’s free-kick de­flected wide.

Bay were nev­er­the­less ahead on 41 min­utes when Foalle atoned from eight yards af­ter Ol­lie Martin had cut in from the left.

Dan Tag­gart then headed just over from Luke Salmon’s cor­ner be­fore the home side lev­elled in stop­page time. Craig McFarlane lost pos­ses­sion and was made to pay when Dale Bur­rell ar­rowed a 25-yard drive into the top cor­ner.

Whick­ham were the stronger side in ex­tra-time, Bay de­fender Luke Tay­lor turn­ing Joe Mole’s cross into his own net for Whick­ham to clinch it. STAR MAN: Matty Pat­ti­son (Whick­ham) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
