Cricklewood Wanderers reach the Buildbase FA Vase First Round with stunning 7-2 victory against Rayners Lane.

Cricklewood Wanderers FC have reached the First Round of the Buildbase FA Vase for the second time in the club’s short history, defeating Rayners Lane on Saturday in the Second Qualifying Round.

A free-flowing performance saw a 3-1 half-time lead extended with five second half goals, the superior fitness of the Cricklewood players paying dividends as the minutes ticked on.

Goals came courtesy of Curtis Tunstall, Anthony Emeh, Matthew Hodgson, Marcus Gibbs Greenidge and a hat-trick from Ashley Flanore.

The tie is to be played on Saturday, October 21.
