Thetford Town FC all set for Vase

Thetford Town entertain Walsham-le-Willows in the second qualifying round of the FA Carlsberg Vase, on Saturday 3pm kick-off.

Thetford Town 0, Godmanchester Rovers 0

After Town’s win in the FA Vase at Rothwell in midweek it was back to league action with Godmanchester Rovers the visitors.

Town got under way with a Jones effort in the early minutes just going wide.

Town had most of the early play and Dixon brought a good save from the keeper on 15 minutes.

Godmanchester had their moments and should have taken the lead when the offside trap was beaten but Bowden saved well.

Some strange refereeing decisions stopped the game from flowing.
