FA Vase tie holds no fear for Hadleigh United
15:00 12 February 2013
HADLEIGH United will not have any fear, whoever they play in the quarter-finals of the FA Vase, according to manager Stuart Crawford.
The Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division side have been drawn away to either Larkhall Athletic or Tunbridge Wells in the last eight of the competition on Saturday, March 2.
Larkhall sit eighth in the Toolstation Western League Premier Division, while Tunbridge Wells are currently seventh in the Kent Hurlimann League Premier Division.
The two sides meet in their delayed fifth round proper tie this Saturday.
Crawford said: “It won’t be easy because we are away from home again, but both sides have been beaten a few times in their respective leagues like we have.
“We certainly won’t be going there with any fear, whoever we face.
“I will try to speak to someone who knows about our opponents before we face them, but we won’t be travelling to watch them play.”
Hadleigh return to Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division action this evening when they entertain Brantham Athletic, who saw their own FA Vase hopes ended in a 4-1 defeat to Shildon on Saturday.
Kick-off at The Millfield is 7.45pm.
