ROB Hobbs scored the only goal of the game as Corsham Town beat Deal Town 1-0 to reach the last 16 of the FA Vase on Saturday.

The Wiltshire side had never been in the fourth round before but continued to create history thanks to Hobbs' late first-half strike at the Southbank.

Saturday's match was the third time the pair had attempted to play each other as poor weather prevented the first two efforts from going ahead.

When the action did finally get underway, Corsham's Ryan Bath hit the post in the first 10 minutes before Deal saw a penalty appeal waved away.

With nerves evidently a factor for both teams, chances were at a premium until first-half stoppage time, when Corsham took the lead.

Dan Demkiv created an opening down the right, and Hobbs popped up to stick the ball into the back of the net from close range.

After the break, Deal saw a potential equaliser ruled out before another penalty appeal was rejected.

The Quarrymen's stopper, Samuel Jepson was forced into a magnificent save late on, turning a dipping effort onto the bar.

Ben Gerring was sent off inside the final 10 minutes for Corsham after picking up two yellow cards, but Kieran Baggs' men held on.

Corsham will now host AFC Brixham in the last 16 on Saturday, February 11.
