Crows drawn at home in the last 16 of the Vase

Crowborough Athletic's hopes of a dream appearance at Wembley received a boost today when they secured a home draw in the fifth round of the FA Vase.

The Crows were drawn to face either Kirkham & Wesham or Studley in the last 16 of the competition.

Whoever makes the trip to the Alderbrook faces a long journey. Warwickshire side Studley play in the Polymac Services Midland Football Alliance while Lancashire outfit Kirkham & Wesham are based near Blackpool and play in division two of the North West Counties League.
