The best way to keep up to date with Eastwood CFC


Desborough Town 4-1 ECFC

7 months ago By Zander Shayler

Eastwood's 16 match winning run came to an end on Saturday when step five side Desborough Town knocked Eastwood out of the FA Vase.

Another nerve -shattering performance put Desborough into the 4th round of the FA Vase, the last 32 teams in the competition. Going ahead with a great Dean header just before half-time, Desborough were rocked by a powerful second half performance from Eastwood who seemed unfazed when reduced to 10 men after Thomas received a straight red. Eastwood smashed home a deserved 89 minute equaliser. To extra time -again!- when Hall with a clinical finish and Dean with two late breakaway goals for his hat-trick ended Eastwood's long winning streak and sent Desborough on to Round 4 with a 4-1 win.
