GOALSCORERS Paul Chow and Lee Kerr wrote themselves as well as their football club into the history books on Sunday as Whitley Bay FC won the FA Vase for a record third consecutive season at Wembley.
Having scored in the previous two finals against Glossop North End and Wroxham in 2009 and 2010 respectively, the two strikers were on target again this year to edge an enthralling final 3-2 over Coalville Town.
Chow gave the Seahorses an interval lead, but after a Coalville equaliser Kerr restored the holders’ advantage.
But a second Town goal ten minutes before time looked like sending the tie to extra time.
However, in the 85th minute a Kerr free kick hit the bar and Chow forced the ball home to the delight of the fans from North Tyneside.
News Guardian photographer GEMMA MARRINER was there to capture the drama.
