Familiar name spurs Didcot to FA Vase win

Posted on 15 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).

A familiar Spurs name inspired Didcot Town to victory in the FA Vase Final at the Lane on Saturday.

Stuart Beavon - whose father, also Stuart, made five appearances for us between 1975-1980 - scored twice in the second half to clinch a 3-2 victory for the Oxfordshire outfit against AFC Sudbury from Suffolk.

Almost 9,000 fans witnessed all five goals in a thrilling second half.

Beavon, 21, opened the scoring for Didcot on the half-volley after 55 minutes only for Sudbury's Shane Wardley to level with a fine 25-yard strike.

Wardley went from hero to villain just two minutes later when he inadvertently turned Paul Powell's cross into his own net.

Beavon all-but ended it as a contest with his second and Didcot's third goal from the edge of the box in injury time but Sudbury still had time to pull one back for 3-2 via Neil Calver's penalty.
