Vase Over for another Year


The Greens went out of the FA Vase in the second qualifying round at the hands of their near neighbours.

There was one change to the starting line up that had acquitted themselves well in the previous match at Stowmarket. With Jackson Ramm suspended following his sending off in that game, Mitch McKay returned to the side, with Elliott Hannant dropping to right back.

Kirkley began strongly, earning a corner within the first thirty seconds but it was a bitty opening ten minutes of the match with numerous stoppages interrupting the flow.

The extra height of the visitors was causing problems and they did get the ball in the net in the eleventh minute but Liam Harvey-Cooper's touch a yard out had made him offside. The ball might well have been going in without the touch.

Gorleston came into the game but were dealt a blow in the 32nd minute.

Harvey-Cooper went down in the box and the referee pointed to the spot. Miguel Lopez easily converted.

Seven minutes later Kirkley doubled their lead following a mix up at the back which allowed Lopez to break through on Tom Coombe's goal. Coombe brought him down but he had already squared the ball to Harvey-Cooper who had the goal at his mercy.

Kirkley began the second half as they had finished the first. Two free headers from Kaiden Goldspink and Jack Herbert were straight into Coombe's hands before Harvey-Cooper curled one over.

Stewart Larter tried a couple of substitutions in an effort to get back into the game and they perhaps came closest to hitting the net.

Dino Tabakovic got onto a cross from a quick corner in the 63rd minute but headed narrowly wide. Then Danny Camish got his head to a deep Gilfedder cross but he also couldn't get it on target.

In between those chances, Joel Watts got in on the left, beating two defenders before shooting across goal but his effort rebounded back off the far post having taken a nick off Ross Gilfedders studs. Its a good job it didn't go in really as the linesman decided Gilfedder was offside.

With Gorleston having to push on they were left exposed at the back. Goldspink broke through and was denied by Coombe with the follow up hit into the sidenetting.

McKay hit a free kick from 25 yards but it was never curling enough and then a bouncing ball into the box wouldn't sit nicely for Ryan Fuller and the keeper was able to grab it off his foot.

That was as close as it got for the Greens although Gilfedder was a bit unfortunate not to have two penalties in the closing stages. One where he was grappled to the ground whilst trying to get a shot away and then when the goalkeeper clambered over him to sit on his shoulder.

There was certainly more contact in those incidents than there had been for the penalty that was given but Gorleston are not getting the rub of the green with decisions at the moment.

Match sponsors were Ann and Mick Santon and they awarded the Batemans man of the match to Jack Tipple.
