Emirates FA Cup Prelimnary Round
Saturday 24th August 2019
Kick Off @ 3:00pm
We are back in Emirates FA Cup action thia afternoon as we head to Ram Meadow for our Preliminary Round tie. We progressed in the previous round thanks to a 3-1 win at Desborough Town a couple of weeks ago but our hosts enter the competition tomorrow.
Since the last round both clubs have kicked off their BetVictor Isthmian League North Division campaigns with Town taking 4 points from their opening two games against our 3. They opened their season with a 3-1 home win over Basildon United with goals from Cemal Ramadan, Ryan Jolland and Ollie Hughes. Stutes supporters will remember Jake Chambers-Shaw who was Man of the Match for Town in that game. On Tuesday evening Chambers-Shaw was on the score sheet as Town drew 1-1 at Witham Town.
Lance was pleased to come away from Julius Martin Lane with all 3 points on Tuesday evening despite a late Soham Town comeback that had us under pressure towards the end of the game. There are no reports of new injuries ahead of tomorrow’s game so the manager should have a full squad to choose from as we look to progress into the 1st Quaifying Round.
Should the scores be level after 90 minutes then we will replay at Bridge Road on Tuesday 3rd September (kick off @ 7:45pm)
