CHRISTCHURCH are set to use their fifth goalkeeper in three rounds of the FA Vase – after boss Ollie Cherrett swooped for Lymington Town's Jordan Tewkesbury.

Max Frampton was between the sticks for the second qualifying round clash with Westbury United but succumbed to a groin injury and was replaced by Ollie King, the latter now ruled out by a broken wrist.

In the replay – ordered after Westbury broke competition rules by exceeding the permitted number of substitutes – goalkeeping coach Mark Smith stepped up as an emergency stand-in.

Jason Collins donned the gloves for the win over US Portsmouth in the first round proper, with his unavailability for Saturday's home tie against Fareham Town leaving the path clear for Tewkesbury to make his debut.

It had been hoped that Frampton would feature but he aggravated his injury against Verwood Town in Sydenhams Wessex One on Saturday and looks set for several weeks on the sidelines.

Cherrett told the Daily Echo: "The FA Vase has not been kind to us regarding goalkeepers.

"Lymington have been absolutely amazing in letting us take Jordan so a big thank you to them for helping us out.

"It has been a difficult period but, hopefully, there is light at the end of the tunnel."

A prize fund of £900 will be on the line at Hurn Bridge, with Priory aiming to reach the third round proper for the first time since the 2011-12 campaign.

Cherrett added: "The lads have got the chance to continue the run they are on but we know it's going to be a really tough test.

"We've already beaten Fareham in one cup competition this season but they have changed a few players since then.

"The lads are full of confidence and are raring to go."
