Saturday 6th May, 2006 will always be a day to remember for Dabbers fans! In the biggest game in Nantwich Town's history, the team rose to the occasion sweeping aside Hillingdon Borough 3-1 to win the FA Vase.
The final took place in the Premiership surroundings of Birmingham City's St Andrews ground and Nantwich got off to flying start with Mat Beasley hitting the woodwork in the fifth minute with Boro goalkeeper Ben Harris helpless.
The travelling south Cheshire contingent didn't have much longer to wait though as Kinsey opened the scoring after 15 minutes with Nantwich dominating the early stages.
But Nantwich didn't have everything their own way and Hillingdon captain Matt Kidson twice came close to an equaliser before Dave Lawrence, leading scorer with 10 in this season's FA Vase, tested Rob Hackney from close range.
More unselfish work by Kinsey allowed Danny Griggs to set up Stuart Scheuber who rifled home a second on the half-hour to secure the Dabbers a two-goal half-time lead.
Boro offered a little more pressure after the break but another Kinsey goal on 68 minutes put paid to any chance of a fightback.
But that third goal came at a price for the Dabbers as Kinsey sustained a freak injury. The former Leek striker saw ecstasy turn to agony as he dislocated his shoulder celebrating the goal and had to be substituted.
When Hillingdon did eventually get the ball into the back of net, Kidson's header was ruled out for a push earlier in the move. Boro did pull a goal back in injury time when Leon Nelson scrambled the ball over the line after Danny Tilbury's effort had hit the post.
But that goal was nothing more than a consolation for Hillingdon and in truth, Nantwich Town were more than worthy winners of the FA Vase final of 2006.
