Farnham Town are hoping to create a memorable piece of club history in the FA Vase at The Memorial Ground today (Saturday).

Town are hoping to achieve their best-ever run in the national competition.

Farnham have already equalled their best-ever run in the FA Vase by reaching the fourth round proper of the competition for the first time since the 1976-77 season.

Paul Johnson’s side will host Bridgwater United at The Memorial Ground in the fourth round proper today (Saturday) at 3pm knowing they are a win away from making history.

Town have already won five ties to reach this stage of the competition.

Farnham’s FA Vase run started with a hard-fought 2-1 win at home to Wessex League Premier Division high-fliers AFC Stoneham in the first qualifying round.

Town then comfortably swatted aside Wessex League Division One outfit Millbrook 8-0 in the second qualifying round, before edging out a competitive Rising Ballers Kensington side 1-0 in the first round proper and comfortably winning 4-1 at home to Snodland Town in the second round proper.

Farnham then won 6-0 at home to Combined Counties Premier Division North outfit Burnham in the third round proper.

Farnham’s record-equalling run in the FA Vase hasn’t affected their league form – Town are proudly sitting at the top of the league in the Combined Counties Premier Division South after winning their first 17 league games this season.

Johnson is looking forward to today’s tie against Bridgwater and is expecting a tough test.

“We’ve had Bridgwater watched,” said Johnson.

“They are a big, physical side. We haven’t faced that yet, so it will be a different test for us.”
