Thatcham Town face Stockton in FA Final at Wembley

Thatcham Town will face Stockton Town in the Buildbase FA Vase final at Wembley on Sunday 20th May 2018.

The Kingfishers booked their place in an enthralling five-goal thriller away to 1874 Northwich, winning the tie 4-2 on aggregate and, in the process, became the first Hellenic League side since Didcot in 2006 to reach the Buildbase FA Vase Final.

The visitors looked to take the game away from their hosts and did just that, racing into an early lead thanks to Gavin James neat finish from a Shane Cooper-Clark free-kick.

James then had his second to put Town in dreamland, bundling home from a goalmouth scramble.

A Scott McGowan penalty for Northwich just before the break helped reduce the deficit but Cooper-Clark’s fine effort from the edge of the box early in the second half made 4-1 on aggregate to Town.

The task looked impossible for the hosts but on the 69th minute they were back in the tie thanks to a bullet header from Matt Woolly.

But it wasn’t enough to stop Thatcham progressing to their first Wembley final ever.
