FA Vase at the Lane

Posted on 14 May 2005  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

The Final of one of the most prestigious cup competitions in non-League football takes place at White Hart Lane this afternoon as AFC Sudbury and Didcot Town battle it out in this season’s FA Vase, in partnership with Carlsberg.


Tickets for the game are still available and will be on sale from the Lane on the day, priced £15 and £10 for adults, and £5 for concessions. Ticket prices for wheelchair users are £10 with admission for their helpers free.


Gary Harvey and AFC Sudbury, of the Ridgeon's Eastern Counties Premier League, are hoping it will be a case of third time lucky after defeat in the last two Finals, while Stuart Peace's Didcot Town, from the GLS Hellenic League, are looking for beginner’s luck after making the Final for the first time in their history.


Reaching this stage of the competition, which attracted 483 entries this season, is a massive achievement for both clubs and a healthy crowd is expected to cheer their sides on when the game kicks off at 2pm on Saturday afternoon.


This is the first time we have hosted the Final, which was previously held at Aston Villa, Birmingham City and West Ham United while Wembley Stadium was being rebuilt. The record attendance is the 26,489 who saw the drawn 1989 final between Sudbury Town and Tamworth at Wembley.


Former Spurs legend, Steve Perryman will be the FA’s chief guest at the final, he will be presenting the winners with the trophy and the victors will also be awarded £15,000 in prize money from the FA and become the 26th club to win The FA Vase.
