Histon v Northampton ON Chenecks
Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round
Saturday 5th August
Kick Off @ 3:00pm
The magic of The FA Cup comes to The Glassworld on Saturday afternoon when Northampton ON Chenecks are in town for our Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round tie.
Our visitors play in The Unied Counties League Premier Division but are yet to get their league campaign underway. Last season they finished comfortably in mid-table, ending up in 12th place. At this stage of the Cup they were beaten by Harefield United on penalties after a replay.
Our Cup campaign last season saw us win 2-1 away at Norwich United in the Preliminary Round with goals from Simon Unwin and Cameron Watson. In the 1st Qualifying Round we were 2-0 victors at Lowestoft Town where Lewis Clayton and Jake Chambers-Shaw were on the scoresheet but our run came to and with a 0-4 reverse at National League South side Wealdstone in the 2nd Qualifying Round.
Manager Lance Key is looking forward to the game, “we all know how big these games are for the club” said Key. “A good run in this competition brings financial rewards that can help to support the club and the team and lifts both players and supporters. I’ve spoken to a few people about our opponents and we’ll be prepared but anything can happen on the day. We need to have the right approach and attitude and if we do that we think we’ll do well. I’m really looking forward to it and I hope we can get a few through the gate to support us on the day as that makes a big difference to the players”
