The date: 29th October

The Place: Southport, Haig Avenue

The competition: The FA Cup but not the proper bit, oh no. This is the 4th qualifying round – the FA Cup proper 1st round awaits us if we can get past the Sandgrounders.

So, a fixture from the past but under the non-league banner nowadays.

I think, as this could well be our one and only FA Cup tie this season, I will travel to this one. Good excuse for a couple of 99’s and a bag of chips on the sea-front. Who knows, if I don’t get too comfy in a pub I might even go and watch the match as well.

At least getting knocked out of the FA Cup by a non-league club holds no shame for us any more.

Apologies for the somewhat downbeat article. Still got those Wrexham blues.

A and F.

  • Desperate times when you you look at the draw for the FA Cup and see that you’ve drawn Southport and know deep down that you can’t win the game!

  • Your right PTB I feel that any team can beat us we are so poor this is almost asgood as a pass in the next round for Southport, I cannot see anything from us when we play we are as rubbish now as we have been for the last 3 years

  • Cannot help thinking, that the full squad we have should be comfortable in mid-table in this league. Maybe we will have a new gaffer by then. As I said in the brief article above, I will be going, at the moment not with much hope. A few beers and a sing-song is all I expect.
