Leiston drawn away in FA Vase

LEISTON will face a trip to Leicestershire to face Coalville Town in the quarter-finals of the FA Vase.

While Ridgeons League Premier Division leaders Leiston beat Long Buckby 2-1 in Saturday’s fifth round, Coalville defeated Holbrook Sports 3-1 after extra time to book their place in the last eight of the competition.

They play in the Midland Football Alliance and currently occupy third place, five points behind leaders Tipton Town but with three matches in hand.

The two sides have met before with a penalty from Stuart Boardley separating the sides in the FA Cup Third Round Qualifying in October 2008.

Norfolk neighbours King’s Lynn Town received a home tie against Sussex County League Rye United while favourites and holders Whitey Bay make the short trip to Gateshead to face fellow STL Northern League Dunston UTS.
