Brimscombe and Thrupp were left to rue missed chances after being knocked out of the FA Vase on penalties.

Due to Brimscombe’s Meadow being waterlogged, Sunday’s rescheduled game against Bridgwater Town was played at Cirencester Town’s Corinium Stadium.

The Lilywhites started on the front foot, with Ed Major heading against the crossbar after only two minutes and Bridgwater keeper Jake Viney beating away another attempt moments later.

They made their early pressure count after 25 minutes when Major's cross was diverted into his own net by Dave Thorne.

Bridgwater levelled minutes later, the ball bundled in following a long throw.

Brimscombe & Thrupp continued to dictate play and took the lead again when centre back Jack Bartman found the top corner with a long rang effort.

On the hour mark however, keeper Adam Thomas suffered an injury which resulted afterwards in goal kicks having to be taken by defenders.

Jack Smith and Jonty Welch both went close but were denied by the excellent Viney in the Bridgwater net.

With around eight minutes to go, Bridgwater's Tom Fry curled home a free kick to once more level the scores.

The game went straight to penalties at the end of the 90 minutes.

In sudden death Viney was the hero once again, making his second save of the shootout to send his side through to the next round.
