A battling encounter at Bowdens Park saw St Austell eventually emerge victorious in this FA Vase second round fixture.

Cheddar should be proud of their efforts in the competition though and in the season so far and should go in to the remainder of the campaign with renewed vigour.

The Cornish side took the lead when Daniel Jackson parried a Liam Eddy effort and Neil Slateford was in the right place to slot home the rebound for a half time advantage.

The next goal was always going to be crucial and St Austell secured it when a Christopher Reski corner found its way to Mark Goldsworthy to nod home. Daniel Griffiths set up a grandstand finale with a late goal but it was just not to be for the Cheesemen.

The man of the match award, kindly sponsored by Thatchers Cider Company Limited, went to Oliver Hucker.
