Northwich Victoria, from the North West Counties League’s Premier Division, have matched the feat of neighbours 1874 Northwich last season by reaching the semi-finals stage.

They are joined by Surrey outfit Chertsey Town, currently second in the Combined Counties League’s top-flight, after they eliminated West Auckland Town – the final remaining Northern League representative – yesterday afternoon.

The Southern Counties East League has two representatives after Cray Valley PM and Canterbury City, who edged out Biggleswade on Sunday, both made it through.

How it works

The club drawn first plays the first match at home.

If the aggregate score is level after 90 minutes of the second leg, then a 30-minute period of extra-time follows.

Should the teams still not be separated then a penalty shoot-out will decide the outcome.

There is no away goals rule in the FA Vase.

Path to this stage for Vics

2QR Sep 16 Maltby Main (h) 2-0

1R Oct 13 Cammell Laird (h) 5-0

2R Nov 07 Prestwich Heys (h) 1-0 (replay)

3R Dec 01 Silsden (h) 3-0

4R Jan 05 Newcastle Benfield (a) 3-2

5R Feb 02 Histon (a) 3-1 (aet)

QF Feb 23 Sholing (h) 3-1 (aet)

What do the bookmakers think?

For now, they have installed Chertsey Town - conquerors of previous favourites West Auckland Town - as the most likely to lift the trophy at Wembley in May.

Vics, who also saw off another fancied side in the shape of Sholing, are next best at 5/2.

Canterbury City are rated as 10/1 outsiders.

Prize money

There is £5,500 up for grabs for those teams that progress to the last four of this season’s edition.

Clubs eliminated at this stage receive £1,750.

After seven wins to date, Vics have ensured they will bank £11,825 from this season’s edition.

For the diary

The first leg of both semi-finals encounters is scheduled for Saturday, March 16 with the return seven days later.

That could be subject to change if Canterbury, tenants at Faversham Town, are drawn to play at home on the first of those dates because their landlords are due to host VCD Athletic the same afternoon.

Similarly Witton Albion, owners of Wincham Park where Vics play, are scheduled to play a Northern Premier League fixture against Basford United on March 23.

Cray Valley PM share a ground with Greenwich Borough. Their landlords down to host Horsham on March 16.
