HUNTS Post sports reporter CARL FIELD joined St Neots Town on their FA Vase fourth round trip to East Midlands Counties League outfit Gresley on Saturday to get a first-hand insight into a Saints away day and recorded events as they unfolded in Derbyshire. Heres how he got on 10.40: Arrive at The Hunts Post Community Stadium. People start to drift in and the atmosphere and mood among the supporters in Reedmans seems fairly relaxed and positive. 11.15: Team/officials and supporters coaches both depart the ground. 11.34: Quick stop off at Brampton Hut services to pick up five or six of the squad or the Peterborough lot which soon livens things up at the back of the coach. One player not on board is Stefan Moore, who is heading straight there. Saints chairman John Delaney informs me that travelling on the other coach is Chris Howell, who was manager of the Saints the last time they reached the last 16 of the FA Vase back in 2001/02. 12.00: Bit of banter and chit-chat at the back of the coach, the lads cracking a few jokes. Captain Glen Fuff sits alone, perhaps focusing on the task in hand while Big Roy Essandoh catches up on the days big news stories in The Sun. 12.10: Manager Dennis Greene is watching the new (and extremely funny) BBC comedy staring David Walliams and Matt Lucas Come Fly With Me. 13.14: Coach pulls in to the Moat Ground in Gresley. At first glance you notice the sloped pitch, the surface doesnt look great and its freezing. Got cup upset written all over it. Still, Mr Delaney isnt worried. Away win, he said when asked for a prediction. At least five today. Thats better John but Ill go 3-1 Saints. 13.25: Might have got in free but theres no complimentary programme for the press at Gresley. Pound, please. 14.00: Mr Delaney invites me upstairs into what appears to be Gresley VIP room a temporary building with a table and kettle although a rather nice cup of tea more than makes up for the programme shenanigans! 14.30: Assistant manager Tony Scully is putting the players through their paces. Time for a pre-match pint and a chat with a few of the natives. 14.55: A glance at the team sheet Gresley have pinned up makes for interesting reading. Its good to see those household Neots names like Junior Vanudu and Tim McShane are playing today, while Mickey Huem can be called upon off the bench if required. 14.56: Here come the teams, with the Star Wars theme booming out around the ground. Come on Saints! 15.02: Nearly two minutes into the game and the Star Wars music is still playing over the tannoy. Neots going up the slope in the first period and right-back Jack Bradshaw has to make a last-ditch tackle to prevent their man getting a shot in early on 15.11: Theres the first chance. Hilliards 20-yard shot from the right-hand edge of the box is well saved by the home keeper down to his left. 15.45: Goalless at half-time and, so far, it just isnt happening for Saints. Not much joy in the final third as yet and Gresley are giving as good as they get. Real battle on here. 15.57: Out they come for the second half. Im sure Greeney will have had a word or two to say at half-time. 16.03: Oh dear this wasnt in the script Gresley have taken the lead and now time to see what Neots are really made of. Id love to describe the goal, but Im still stuck in the queue for the tea and food hut. 16.23: And were all square again, the Gresley keeper does well to parry Dan Jacobs pile driver and looks like hes done enough to tip it over, but the ball drops in the top left-hand corner. 16.30: Controversy as the home side appear to have had what looked like a legitimate second goal chalked out. Now wheres that TV replay? 16.36: Normal service resumed. Saints get their noses in front and its that man Tolley again punishing a lapse of concentration in the Gresley defence. Just the 36 goals now this season. He says he isnt too bothered about breaking records. Maybe not, but he will anyway. 16.44: Its all over now as Tolley makes it 3-1. Hurry up and blow the whistle ref, time for a pint or two. Attendance recorded as 400-odd, not bad. And my prediction was spot on, should have had a bet with Mr Delaney on that one. 16.50: There goes the whistle. A big shout out must go to the hordes of travelling fans from St Neots. Brilliant all the way through - and the players rightly went and celebrated with them on full-time. 17.51: Back on the coach for the return journey. That was massive for us today, said a proud Saints chairman. Bring on Kings Lynn in round five.
