Hadleigh United boss Shane Wardley is hoping Sunday’s fine 3-0 FA Vase victory at St Margaretsbury can help his side kick on this season.
The Brettsiders moved into the next round of the competition – where they will face Little Oakley in two weeks,
Two early goals got Hadleigh on track and all in all it was a good job done, as Wardley admitted.
“We know what we can do because we have shown it this season,” he said.
“We have just been inconsistent. But on Sunday we changed our formation and I think that helped.

“On Sunday, we did that and got our rewards on the counter-attack.”

Wardley and his team started the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division season with a bang, thrashing FC Clacton 5-1.
But the only successes since have come in the FA Cup and now the FA Vase, Sunday’s result at St Margaretsbury a boost ahead of a home clash with Wroxham on Saturday.
“At the start of the season I always felt we could be mid-table and I haven’t changed my view on that,” Wardley said.
“We are a team who are being beaten by the odd goal too many times and we are also gifting goals to the opposition.
“Like I said, perhaps a change of formation will help.
“Wroxham are going nicely and have a good crop of youngsters. It will be a test.”
Meanwhile, Thurlow Nunn clubs are in FA Cup action this weekend.
Both Brantham Athletic and Haverhill Rovers are at home in a round that offers £6,000 to the winners.
For clubs at these levels, that is a huge cash boost.
