NEWPORT will not progress in this season's FA Vase after they lost 2-0 at St George's Park to a good Cribbs side who should have won much more comfortably.

The Islanders should have been a goal down after 45 seconds when a shot from close in was blazed over.

Somehow, Newport managed to survive goal-less at half-time.

The home side came out playing much better, without creating any chances.

Eventually, after they had racked up a hatful of missed chances, it took a misjudgement from Port keeper Gary Streeter, to gift the Bristol side the lead - dropping a cross at the feet of the incoming Cribbs defender, who gleefully placed it home from seven yards on 68 minutes.

The lead was doubled on 81 minutes when the Cribbs striker swivelled in the box and smashed it home to end the tie, in front of a crowd of 155.

Cowes Sports' poor run of form continued with their heaviest defeat of the season, 7-1 away at Bashley in the Sydenhams Wessex Premier league.

This afternoon was not much beter for East Cowes Vics after they lost 5-0 at Folland Sports in Sydenhams Wessex Division 1.
