Sheffield land ‘plum’ home tie in Trophy

Have your say

Sheffield FC have landed the prospect of a big tie in the second qualifying round of the FA Trophy.

They have been drawn at home to either former Football League club Darlington 1883 or Buxton who replay tomorrow having drawn 1-1 at Buxton on Saturday.

The tie is a week on Saturday and guarantees a bumper gate at Dronfield, particularly so if it is Darlington who take a decent following to away games.

Sheffield slipped to a first defeat in eight last night, beaten 3-0 at Romulus.

Zeph Thomas went closest for Club with a free-kick against the crossbar.
