HAMWORTHY United came from behind to seal a dramatic extra time victory and book their place in the third round of the FA Vase.

Hammers had been four minutes away from exiting the competition having trailed 1-0 at home to South West Peninsula League Falmouth Town.

Falmouth’s Jordan Annear scored just past the hour mark to put the Cornish outfit in the box seat.

But an own goal from the visitors meant Callum Brooks’s charges levelled up the contest.

Dan Cann then fired the hosts ahead in extra time before Nathan Walker added the finishing touches, converting a penalty to seal a 3-1 triumph.

Victory earned the Specsavers County Ground side £900 and set up an away clash with Hamble Club in the third round on Saturday, December 1.

A considerable £1,125 is up for grabs for the winners of that contest – the losers receive £375.

Elsewhere in the competition, Stepan Neronski’s first-half brace was not enough for Poppies as they squandered a two-goal advantage to lose 3-2 at Baffins Milton Rovers.

Shane Cornish, Callum Dart and Jason Parish hit back for the hosts to send out the Victoria Park side.

Brockenhurst were beaten 4-0 at home by Western League Bradford Town.

Meanwhile, Poole Town will tomorrow begin their quest for Dorset Senior Cup glory.

Tom Killick’s side host Portland United in the first round at Black Gold Stadium (7.45pm) and will be hoping to avoid an upset at the hands of the Wessex Premier high fliers.

Poole last won the competition in 2014 and are 16-time winners. And assistant Taffy Richardson says the pull of being crowned the best in the county should be motivation enough for his side.

Richardson told the Daily Echo: “I used to love playing in the northern county cups and when I first came down south, it was a massive cup for me.

“The first trophy I won with Wimborne as a player was the county cup.

“Some people don’t take it that seriously but I think it’s massive to be crowned county champions.

“I don’t take it lightly and I know some teams devalue it by putting weaker teams out or playing their reserves.

“I don’t see it that way. It doesn’t matter what competition it is, you should want to win. I see the county cup as a prestigious cup.”

Should Poole progress, they would host Dorset Premier League side Swanage Town & Herston in the quarter-finals.

Hamworthy United and Verwood Town will also duel for a spot in the last eight, this time at the County Ground (7.45pm). The reward for the winner is a trip to Bridport.

Elsewhere, Cherries under-21s travel to face their Southend counterparts in the Central League Cup (1pm).
