It has not been a good week for the footballers from Potton United.
Potton's hopes of reaching the fifth round of the FA Vase for only the second time in the club's history were ended by AFC Totton of the Wessex Senior League on Saturday.
A crowd of 390 gathered at The Hollow to watch the match which ended 2-1 to the visitors.
Potton took an 11th minute lead when a quick Paul Garrett free-kick went round the wall and gave the visiting keeper no chance.
AFC Totton equalised nine minutes later when Mark Osman finished from close range after two previous efforts had been saved by Brad Gillham in the Potton goal.
The remainder of the first half was quite evenly contested with neither side really testing either keeper.
