Clapton and Woodford Town had to settle for a replay in the FA Vase after the sides drew 1-1 in the first qualifying round of the competition at the Old Spotted Dog.

Visitors Woodford took a 1-0 lead into the half-time break but the Tons managed to nick a late equaliser after being awarded a penalty when, although the original effort hit the post, the rebound was slotted into the back of the net.
