MATCH REPORT: Bacup Vs Remyca FA Vase

Bacup 1-4 Litherland Remyca

Borough bow out of the FA Vase after defeat against Premier Division Side

By Matthew Lawson


Ahead of the eagerly anticipated FA Vase tie Boro Manager Brent Peters was forced into changes due to a number of injuries in the camp.

He handed full debuts to Defender Liam Simm and Forward Micah Evans. Evans who came off the bench last week to set up Holding for his goal against Chadderton.

Remyca were ahead after Two minutes, not the start Peters’ side would have wanted. The goal came following some wide play from the Remyca forward who turned and beat Esdaille for pace on the byline, he came inside and put it on a plate for Colin Quirk who tapped home from close range.

Borough almost had an instant reply, great build up play from the kick off saw Josh Walne burst down the right and played in Micheal Gervin who’s first time shot was scuffed and was easy enough for the goalkeeper.

Bacup were back on level terms midway through the first half, it was sloppy defending from the visitors and an error from the Goalkeeper allowed Michael Gervin to stroke home from the edge of the box as the Keeper was out of position and could do nothing about it. 1-1

That’s how the first half ended, neither side went close in the last 20 minutes of the first half as they went in to the half time break with the scores level at 1-1

Ten minutes into the second half Remyca retook the lead in this cup tie, a header from a corner beat a seemingly unset Monahan in the Borough Goal.

With 25 minutes remaining Borough were in the search of another equaliser, Peters had made two attacking changes but it was the visitors who found the back of the net for a third time.

There was still time for a 4th Remyca goal as Jevons managed to fire past Monahan high into the roof of the net from close range.


That was that for Bacup’s FA Vase run as the were knocked out by Litherland Remyca, attention now re focuses onto the league, they face Lower Breck away. It was a tight 0-0 stalemate when the two sides met at the Westview last month, let’s hope Borough can get back to winning ways and get another 3 points on the board.
