Needham win classic Vase tie.

Needham Market are through to the last 16 of the FA Vase thanks to a thrilling 5-3 victory over fellow Suffolk side Kirkley & Pakefield this afternoon.

Nathan Stone put the visitors ahead early on but Damien Hilton equalised only for Scott Manning to almost immediately restore Kirkley's lead.

Hilton again levelled before Kevin Horlock's curling free kick put Needham in front in first half injury time.

There was no let up after the interval as Stone drew Kirkley level before Hilton completed his hat trick to make it 4-3 to Needham.

Darren Bethell's far post header after 77 minutes saw Needham deservedly go through after a cracking fourth round tie.
