Saturday, 22 September 2007

Ar Tarn held off Hoddesdn's late fightback to progress against the inaugural Vase winners.

Jamie O'Neill gave Desborough a 17th minute advantage and Michael Byrne added a 33rd minute second from the penalty spot.

Early in the second half the tie looked over as Stuart McClarty scored a 51st minute third for Ar Tarn and Byrne added number four three minutes later.

Andrew Martin scored for Hoddesdon after 82 minutes and two successful spot kick conversions from Mark Masson after 86 and 89 minutes made it an anxious finale for Desborough. Hoddesdon were awarded a third spot kick but debutant goalkeeper Tom Rix saved to take his side through.
