AFC Totton 1-3 Truro City
As soon as AFC Totton qualified for the final of the FA Vase, it was clear the town was going to really get behind the team.
Over 120 coaches left Totton early on Sunday morning as thousands of fans were ferried up the M3 to the new £800 million Wembley Stadium.
Having taken in the awesome surroundings of the stadium, the Totton fans went about creating a party atmosphere with horns, balloons and furry stags' antlers.
With 3 o'clock approaching, the sides given a deafening welcome and after kick-off there were few signs of big-game nerves as both sides battled for early control.

It was Totton who broke the deadlock. Defender Danny Potter picked up a lose ball from a corner and spun before firing into the top corner and sending Totton fans into ecstasy.
Mark Osman almost doubled the lead when he danced through the Truro defence but his chip went just wide.
Totton looked to be in control but just before half time former Plymouth Argyle player Kevin Wills fired low into Iain Brunnschweiler's net.
Stuart Ritchie's men came out fighting after the break but with chances going begging, it was Kevin Wills who again broke Totton hearts, with a low 25 yard drive past Brunnschweiler.

As Totton pushed forward, Fouad Hamodu had two good chances but the Stags couldn't make the final break through.
They were caught on the break by Joe Broad who struck 6 minutes from time to finally shatter AFC Totton's dreams of winning the FA Vase and sent the trophy to Cornwall for the first time.
As the fans filed out of the stadium, there was nothing but praise for the team who gave everything but 'it just wasn't to be'.
