Tunbridge Wells FC is just two wins away from Wembley - and want a huge crowd to spur the team on at the Culverden this Saturday.
Jack Harris was the hero of the hour for Tunbridge Wells
Jack Harris was the hero of the hour as Tunbridge Wells FC booked their spot in the last eight of the FA Vase last Saturday afternoon, reports thisiskent.
Martin Larkin's side had looked to be heading out of the competition with ten minutes of normal time remaining at Larkhall Athletic.
But that was before Andy Irvine equalised to make it 3-3 and send the game into extra-time.
Andy McMath then saw red on 117 minutes, but Wells kept fighting and teenage striker Harris popped up with the winner in the dying seconds to give Wells a famous 4-3 win.
It was a tough afternoon down in Bath in a game that swung one way and then the next. The match didn't get off to the best start for Wells as they fell behind to a Simon Gilbert 12th minute penalty.
However, roared on by a large travelling support they bounced back and Josh Stanford levelled things up on 31 minutes, before McMath put them ahead just before half-time.
But the hosts didn't give up and Gilbert got his second penalty on 52 minutes, before Tom Welch put Larkhall within sight of the quarter-finals when he made it 3-2.
However, Wells had other ideas with Irvine and Harris firing them into the last eight.
Wells host Hadleigh United this Saturday in the quarter-finals and the club is desperate for a huge crowd to spur the team on at the Culverden.
