FA Vase
Winners 1985, 1986; Finalists 1983
 
The Football Association Challenge Vase, commonly known as the FA Vase, is a knockout cup competition in English football, organised by and named after The Football Association (the FA). It was staged for the first time in the 1974–75 season, effectively replacing the FA Amateur Cup, which was discontinued after the abolition of official amateur status by the FA. While the leading teams from the Amateur Cup switched to the existing FA Trophy, the lower-level teams entered the new FA Vase. As of 2008, the Vase is open to all clubs in levels five to seven of the National League System, equivalent to levels nine to eleven of the overall English football league system, although clubs from other leagues may apply to enter if their stadiums meet certain requirements.
The record for the most wins is held by Billericay Town, with three victories, all of which occurred during the 1970s. Billericay, Halesowen Town and Tiverton Town have each won the Vase in two consecutive seasons.
Halesowen won the FA Vase in 1985 beating Fleetwood at Wembley 3-1 and again in 1986 beating Southall 3-0 at Wembley.  They also appeared in the 1983 Wembley final loosing to VS Rugby 1-0.
