Game 5: Chippenham Park 0.1 Newport IOW (FA Vase) 3.10.15
A quick drive to Hardenhuish Park to watch a Western 1 v Wessex Premier FA Vase tie. While Chippenham Park had a lot of possession, Newport made the better of the chances in a goalless first half – hitting the bar with a header and again from a shot. Chippenham’s best opportunity came from a corner when a Newport player sliced his clearance against the post.
Newport had more of the ball in the second half and scored with a low shot from distance after 68 minutes. They almost added a second late on but a carefully hit chip came back off the post. Chippenham came close to an equaliser in an injury time goalmouth scramble but couldn’t force the ball over the line.
