FA VASE FOURTH ROUND

Mildenhall Town 2

Sherbourne Town 1

MILDENHALL are now just four games away from Wembley.

A first-half double from Neal Docking on Saturday secured their passage to the fifth round where they face a long trip to County Durham on February 10, to face Billington Synthonia, who are currently mid-table in the Arngove Northern League Division One.

The usually reliable Gareth Simpson missed his second penalty in a week for Mildenhall, early on, after a handball.
