Tricky Cup test for Steels

Have your say

STOCKSBRIDGE Park Steels were handed a tough draw in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup after being drawn away to Droylsden who are mid table in the Blue Square North.

It follows Steels’ excellent 3-1 home win over another Blue Square North club Colwyn Bay on Saturday which added £4,500 prize money to the £3,000 they earned for getting past Armthorpe in the previous round.

The other local side left in, Frickley Athletic, go to Blue Square North side Harrogate Town tonight for their replay after drawing 1-1 at South Elmsall on Saturday with the winners away to either AFC Fylde or Gainsborough Trinity. The third qualifying round is on Saturday, October 15.
