LEIGHTON Town provide the opposition for 1874 Northwich in the FA Vase last eight following their thrilling victory on Saturday.

A 4-3 win at Wolverhampton Sporting clinched a date with a side managed by Paul Bowyer and Wayne Goodison in the quarter-finals later this month.

The Spartan South Midlands League side established a 3-1 lead last weekend thanks to goals from James Hatch, who was on target twice, and Alex O’Brien.

Wolves had drawn level though by the 31st minute before their run ended when O’Brien stayed calm to convert a penalty midway through the second-half.

Leighton, who occupy third place in the Premier Division, will host 1874 on Saturday, February 24, kick-off 3pm.
