FA Cup third round

Postby mike1 » Mon Sep 30, 2013 2:02 pm

Congratulations to our good friend Wayne Goodison and all at Trafford FC on a magnificent win over Altrincham in the second round on Saturday. They deserved better in the third round than a long trek, probably to Northamptonshire and Corby. Best of luck, Wayne, whichever! Strange to find only four Premier Division clubs, out of 24 starters, left in the Cup at this stage. And two of them face each other at Stamford (v. Ashton United). Worksop are also out of luck - away again after a great win at Stalybridge.

No doubt a releif the the league's fixture man, not as many rearrangements to worry about, especially with 24 clubs in the division.

Good luck to Runcorn Linnets too.
Great effort to get to round 3 from NWCL.
Tough task away at NFU though.

Indeed, And Mark Houghton starring ! More remarkable, the fact that Andy Robertson
is their 1st choice keeper :P ( 3rd qualifying round, of course, guys ! )
