OUR reward for knocking York City out of the Emirates FA Cup on Tuesday night is a Fourth Round Qualifying tie against, well, nobody.
As the last ball out of the Northern Section hat this afternoon (live on talkSPORT2) we move straight into the First Round due to the winding up of National League Macclesfield Town FC last month.
Making the First Round Proper for a record-breaking fourth season in a row will bring another £9,375 into the Club, and our original National League North opponents for Saturday, October 24 – Kidderminster Harriers – are back as our opponents after the game was initially postponed. More details on that fixture coming up early next week.
Our next tie in the Cup will be on the weekend of November 7/8, meaning our away fixture against Boston United will now be rearranged. The First Round draw should take place Monday, October 26.
