The FA Vase is at the Fifth Round stage with every club bar one competing at Step Five of the non-league ladder. The sole exception are Wolverhampton Sporting Community who are currently fourth in the West Midlands Regional League Premier Division. It's by far the best run in the competition for the club formerly known as Chubb Sports and Heath Town Rangers. They joined at the First Qualifying Round stage and have since beaten FC Oswestry Town, Heath Hayes, Staveley MW, Rugby Towm (after a replay), Shepshed Dynamo and Cogenhoe United. 

The EBAC Northern League, who have dominated the competition over the last few seasons, have two teams left being Marske United and Stockton Town. Marske have reached the quarter-final stage on two previous occasions in 2001 and 2009 with Stockton Town previously only involved in 1982/83 (1st Round) and last season (2nd Round). 

There will be a new name as winner's of the famous competition as no club left has even been to the final. The winners of the Fifth Round ties will receive £2,250 from the Football Association's prize fund.
