Town have been drawn away against Thackley in the Extra Preliminary round of the Emirates FA Cup. The tie will be played on Saturday 7th August.


It’s the first time in our history that we will be in the FA Cup, with manager James Kinsey saying: “We are delighted to be in The FA Cup this season. It’s the biggest domestic cup competition in the world so to be a part of it is unbelievable. 


“The club has come such a long way in a short space of time. To play in the FA Cup was part of the vision when we first started here, and we are looking forward to the 7th August. 


For our supporters, it is going to be a great occasion. Of course, we would love a run, but just for them to watch their local club play in such a huge competition, a competition that is a major part of footballing tradition in this country, it will be a brilliant occasion.


"We would have obviously of loved a home tie but we are just delighted to be making history for the club. Our fan base has grown in recent years and I’m sure we will take good numbers for what will be a great occasion. 


"We don’t know much on Thackley, but we will do our homework and give it a good go.


“We are really excited for the new challenges that are coming our way. There’s going to be a lot of new, exciting experiences for this football club, we’re going into the unknown a bit, but it’s why we’re all involved, isn’t it?!
