Cup misery continues for March Town United as they crash out of the FA Vase

FA Vase First Qualifying Round: Mildenhall Town 6 March Town United 1

MARCH Town United exited their second cup competition this week to higher-league opposition with a crushing 6-1 defeat at high-flying Mildenhall Town.

It was always going to be tough for Brett Whaley’s Ridgeons First Division side after Tuesday’s 3-2 FA Cup Preliminary Round replay exit to rivals Wisbech Town.

Things didn’t improve after Mildenhall - unbeaten in five matches and currently second in the Ridgeons Premier Division - took a 1-0 lead into the break and quickly doubled their advantage after the restart.

Adam Rothery pulled a goal back for the Hares but the home side added a third moments later to put one foot in the next round.

And as a desperate March pushed forward in search of an equaliser they conceded three goals in the closing stages to cap off a miserable week of cup football for the Hares.

Whaley’s side return to league action next Saturday against Stowmarket Town at home.
