Tunbridge Wells counting on full house as they attempt to reach FA Vase semi-finals with win against Hadleigh United
Tunbridge Wells have called on local fans to help cheer
them a step closer to Wembley as they bid to reach the FA Vase
semi-finals on Saturday.
Wells, pictured in red, are Kent’s last representatives in
FA competitions this season. A crowd of up to 1,000 is
expected to fill Culverden Stadium for the visit of Hadleigh United
who are seventh in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League.
Since the west Kent club reformed in 1967, their record
attendance stands at 967. With nearby Tonbridge and Maidstone both
playing away, that record could be set to tumble.
Wells manager Martin Larkin said: "A lot of people in the town
are talking about it and a lot of the local clubs are playing their
games early so they can come down.
"We need to make sure we perform because there’s nothing better
than winning in front of a big crowd. The cup run does have massive
benefits because we’ll never have a better chance to sell the club
to the town."
Wells knocked out Vase holders Dunston UTS en route to the
quarter-finals. Last weekend, in the fifth round, Jack Harris
scored in the last minute of extra-time to hand 10-man Wells a 4-3
victory at Larkhall.
