Haywards Heath produced a fight back from 3-0 down to turn the FA Vase match on its head and march onto the next round.

Heath found themselves 3-0 down at half time after never really coming out for the first half but an amazing difference in the 2nd half saw them unlucky not to win the game in normal time but go on and win the game in the 2nd period of extra time.

The fight back began when Nathan Cooper smashed home the ball from a Danny Tuner cross, two minutes later Freddie Barker made it three goals in three games netting Heath’s second.

Despite loads of pressure and some heroic goalkeeping it took Heath until the 84th minute to equalise when Josh Bryant headed home a Danny Turner corner.

Heath’s fitness has really shown through this season and it was no surprise that they looked the more mobile in extra time.

The winner came in the 108th minute when Danny Turner, Rob O’Toole combined and the ball fell to Max Miller who smashed home from 10 yards out and put Heath into the next round of the draw.
