Sporting Khalsa 4 Wellington 0 (FA Vase)

Craig Bannister – now on 21 for the season

A Craig Bannister hat-trick put Sporting Khalsa into the next round of the FA Vase, with Ian Rowe‘s men gaining a measure of revenge for a disappointing league cup semi-final defeat to the Herefordshire side last season.

Bannister grabbed all of his goals in the first half, making the second half a relatively routine affair, enlivened only by Dave Meese smashing home a volley deep with not long remaining.

The win means Khalsa remain in both the FA Cup and the FA Vase, with Derbyshire outfit Shirebrook no awaiting Ian Rowe’s side in the first round proper.
