Club hit road in FA Cup

Have your say

two of the four local clubs in the FA Cup preliminary-round draw have been drawn at home while another South Yorkshire side bid tonight to join them.

Sheffield FC have missed out on a home tie, however. They must travel to Garforth Town from Division One North of the Evo-Stik League.

The home ties go to Parkgate, whose reward for a 4-1 thumping of Grimsby Borough is a visit from fellow NCEL side Hall Road Rangers, and Armthorpe Welfare who face Brigg Town after a last gasp win over Nostell MW.

Aiming to earn a home tie are Rossington Main who have an extra-preliminary-round replay tonight at home to Silsden. Rossington forced a 1-1 draw at the Keighley-based club on Saturday.

Staveley have to travel to Goole.

The cash incentive of the FA Cup extends right down to the smallest clubs entering at the extra preliminary round, with prize money at that stage of £750 - which Rossington will earn tonight with a win.

At the next stage, the preliminary round - which is on September 3- it is £1,500.
