FA Vase: Bodmin Town proud of run to fourth round


Bodmin Town boss Darren Gilbert says the club are proud to be Cornwall's last surviving club in the FA Vase.

Gilbert's side face a fourth-round clash with Brightlingsea Regent, who have hit the headlines after buying a stand for their ground from eBay.

They beat Bemerton Heath Harlequins 4-2 in the second round proper, before a 3-2 away win at Kidlington.

"It's really good for Cornwall we're still in it. It's a good challenge for us," he told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"They look a good side. They look physical and they look strong.

"If we turn up like we can turn up, we'll give them a game.

"We're not going to go up there and play safe. We're going to give it a good shot."

Bodmin were knocked out in the fifth round last year, following a 1-0 defeat at home by Gornal Athletic.
