FA Cup Preview

Post  Gibbo on Sat Aug 15, 2015 9:20 pm

They call it the Magic of the Cup today at The Dovecote Stadium Retford are the visitors in the FA Cup K-O 3pm and the clubhouse will be open from 12pm.

This weekends ha certainly gained some publicity over the passed few weeks. With Talksport adopting ourselves as their FA Cup team we have had regular airings on the radio and Colin Murray will be up the Butthole this afternoon. Colin also wroe a great column in the Metro newspaper yesterday about ourselve. Coral bookmakers also picked us as one of their 10 FA Cup games to follow.

Retford last Played ourselves in the 2009/10 season in the Unibond League Challenge Cup Retford winning 6-2. This was the season after their promotion and in the league the year before we lost 4-3 and 3-1 to United.

Like ourselves they have dropped down the pyramid and are the same level as us in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division they have lost their opening two games at home 1-0 to Albion Sports and a midweek away game to Maltby Main 2-1.

Both close defeats and all form books are thrown out the window in the FA Cup. But I am sure we'll be looking to extend our unbeaten record and go through to fce Carltn Town in the next round.

Expecting a healthy crowd up the Butthole this afternoon lets make it more noisier than Tuesday and gain a lot of positive responses from our publicity on the way.
