LOYAL fans are gearing up for a 600-mile round trip to see their football team play the biggest match in their history.

Brightlingsea Regent will take on Gateshead-based Dunston UTS in the fifth round of the FA Vase – effectively the FA Cup for lower non-league teams.

The Thurlow Nunn Premier Division outfit will get raucous support from about 150 supporters who will make the trip up the A1 to Tyne and Wear, tomorrow.

Good luck Brightlingsea Regent! If I wasn't a season ticket holder at Colchester I would have been inclined to go along to add my support. However, a good downpour now at Weston Homes may put paid to the game going ahead tomorrow in any event. Let's hope you do it! Come on you Regents!!

Agree with Ozzie, good luck to Brightlingsea Regent. Unfortunately the Gazette's weather forecast shows sunshine to-morrow as well, so the Regents will have to do without Ozzie. They are a good club and they deserve success. Dunston seem to be a very powerful team so it will be a tough ask, but in a cup anything can happen, and often does.
