Canterbury City FC had a very memorable FA Vase run earlier this season.
We took a look back on some of City’s best moments from the campaign.
Coming back from 2-0 down with 10 men
City did the unthinkable and came from 2-0 down to beat Corinthian FC 4-2.
To anyone coming to support City today, we face an uphill battle against formidable opposition but…. we have done it before in this years comp! #bethe12thman #city #believe #nopressure pic.twitter.com/edzZD6PRcx

Canterbury had the better start but were caught short at the back which led to Corinthian scoring two quick goals.
What didn’t help matters was Liam Quinn being sent off in the 48th minute.
However, City responded in the best possible way by scoring two goals in the second half to take the game to extra time.
With the momentum back with Canterbury the boys scored another two goals in the second half of extra time to win the game 4-2.
Player going viral on twitter
Mobolaji Dawodu was an internet sensation after his brilliant rendition of La Bamba.
The striker was made to do a forfeit after turning up late to their quarter final in the FA Vase.

The video got over 550 thousand views on Canterbury City’s twitter and thousands more on other sites too.
Crowd for the semi-final
The crowd exceeded 1200 people which is a record amount of people at Salters Farm.
Didn’t expect 1,274 @OfficialCCFC_uk second-leg of their semi-final Vase tie, but the good folk from Canterbury did turn up and they were one 91st minute header for getting an extra 30 minutes. Shame they don’t play in Canterbury. pic.twitter.com/m34DVeuqb4

The now growing support for the club
After their campaign in the FA Vase the club has now been ‘put back on the map’ according to Chairman Tim Clark.
Canterbury City are hoping they get enough support to help their bid of getting back to playing in Canterbury.
With the local council elections taking place in May the club are hoping the councillors with a plan to back City moving to Canterbury are elected.
